Spice Plat sting?

I need advise please. I'll try and cut a long story short. An earlier thread I asked about the spice platinum freeview being encrypted. As a result of enquiries i finished up receiving at no charge for a trial perioda Spice Plat card from someone claiming to be an official Spice representative. Paper work recieved with the card seems quite authentic...

Puts card in and it worked straight away for 2 hours then went off leaving sound on only. Came back on for another two hours and finally went off but sound still remains.

Original sender of card claims they are having viaccess encryption problems.

I have not parted with any money but i am sure that would have been the next stage if the card were to continue working. So i think it may have been an attempted sting by someone making pirate cards.

That's ok I can stop playing that game...What bothers me though is if it is something more...

I lack technical knowledge of the pirate card game and worry that someone may be able to produce a pirate card that when used in an embedded viaccess machine could harm the viaccess system and make it possible that even an official card would not work.

Could anyone advise as to if this is technically possible before I commit to buying an official card!!!

Sorry about the long rant hope some one can advise.

I contacted a registered dealer as advised. The reply I got was that Spice platinum are having sound only problems due to the fact Spice are having pirat card problems!!!

I am now confused as to the authenticity of my original supplier. Genuine or not I just don't know now. although no recent e-mails have been answered...

Understand the following if you can.....

Another mystery though is the fact the registered dealer said they checked spice platinum for "Me" yesterday. Problem with that is I didn't notify them till today...Square that circle??

Read they have been having problems with the encryptions.

Plus the upset when they joined TPS and the channel was decoding during the day which upset a lot of people.

They keep fiddling with the encryption so I hope it stays for you.

Always amazing is that when someone mentions keys or something free that a brand new member with 1 post always asks for the details.

Just like fly paper (before it was outlawed) it is the search engine effect, just shows the true power of the web.....

Woah, I just lost half an hour wandering around that site. Amazing pics.

Dishes are kinda nice, but you just can't beat a huge yagi or 6 on a 42m mast :)

I had a friend with a 20m (I think) retractable mast once, and I though THAT was stupid-tall...

If we come across them, the last thing we'll be doing is emailing them to you.

It says no audio or video probably because the keys are out of date by the time you get them, as is explained in the many other threads on the same subject.
