I know that some programming software (e.g. multiprog by TJ) does have a 'lock' button but I've never used it. I suppose you are concerned that unscrupulous dealers will 'lock' the card so they can charge you to update it. I don't think any of the suppliers most of us use would do that because the whole point of the card would be lost.
I do see a TC come with ROM10 xxx but after i5t put in the receiver then it auto update to higher version, so just wonder what happen inside the card, most of the files say it is autoroll and will be change key when it have update, if the data inside the TC can be retrieve, the key can be found and I can use it for my ProDVB.
on the TC programming software, I only see the Load HEX and Load EEP but NO read card, just wonder should it have a button with "read card" ?????
