Are you worried that you will lose your late night entertainment?

All I know is that the French network TPS said that they would change from v1 to v2 on the 13th May (already passed). I think that the total change is set for the end of May.

While I’m on the subject of TPS and V1 / V2 I was surprised to find out that TPS have only needed to issue new V2 cards to people who don’t rent there receiver from TPS.
The subscribers who do rent there receiver have had a firmware change, which I’m told is called TPScrypt, but they are still using the same card.
We will see………to be continued……………………………………………….
