Looks like an anti cardsharing measure. Possibly something similar to what Viasat are using.

Can't say i'm suprised with the amount of payservers that are around these days. It was inevitable.

Also looks like its only relevent to new installs as if i'm not mistaken its an engineers briefing note by the looks of it, and not for general release.

Had this the couple of weeks ago when swapping a box for a customer. The software wasn't up to date - it took me 4 attempts to get it to go. 10 mins each time wasn't funny

Cheers

Not just for new Installs it will be happening on all DRX890/895 receivers as most subscribers should have had or will be getting an email to give information about there card and receiver ID, And yes you guessed it pair HD channels to box.

Viasat is chip paired as i know and TOTAL TV serbia too but that is not big market. Sky UK and Italy with Germany are big market so if 1 of them will be using stronger pairing its simply and u know what will happend.

Uk got over 10 mln subscribers Italians bit less than 5 German ~4 .
Thai True Visions is using newest version of pairing but there stuff is totaly diffrent they were out of stock with their decoders but many ppl choosed FTA channels by C beams.
