Does anyone know if there is an upgrade for a 1.20 Viacess cam?
I take it this is not upgradeable to the new red-cam?
If not is it worth buying one?

Any help would be most appreciated.

Regards,

J

The red cams (Version 4.XX I believe ) are all upgradeable over the air

Simply changing to one of the Eutelsat channels (Paris Premiere or SCT ) will force an upgrade which takes about 20 mins. Since the CAM can be affected by over the air signals I would worry about this in the same way as those using official SECA boxes.

The Black colour CAMS are not prompted in a similar situation and seem to be extermely tolerant of all types of cards

I would not think about updating the Black CAM by any means as these have been proven to work on all channels in other forums. The red CAMS have the Barracuda system, Black CAM all others. Until the other software is targeted successfully by the broadcasters, there is nothing to be bothered about.
