Hi,
I came back to the Satellite scene after an absence of some 3 years. I use an echostar AD3600IP via with a DiseqC 1.2 positioner, which I still have not worked out how to work with the echostar and a 90 cm parabolic dish. I get 80% signal and quality on Hotbird and some 60% on 1 degree West. So I left the dish on Hotbird and it was working fine on the French channels and others with the Magic Module Pentacrypt 1.09 and a 6in1 Magic card. Until two nights ago (Sunday) when it all closed down. I thought that the codes had changed and that was no problem, but checking the module I now see that it is not showing Penta 1.09 but DREAMLOAD and that I cannot understand. I did not reprogramme the module so how did this happen?? Can anyone help? can I reprogramme the module and how? I do have a MASTERA II card programmer but not a module one.

Help please
Con

Hi conk,
the Magic cam goes into Dreamload when left without a card in it, if you put a card in it should go back to showing Penta 1.09. It also goes into Dreamload if you switch the receiver on and off 3 times without a card in it, and take out and re-insert the cam 3 times without a card, this is designed to let you update the Penta software.
Best wishes
Mickha

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

When in dreamload mode you can load a later version of Pentacrypt with a magic loader card but I am afraid it will not open anything extra for you now things have moved on a bit since the magic cam
