When youpatch a FTA receiver, what exactly does it mean? what does it do?

You install modified software onto the receiver which has keys embedded in it. This opens some pay tv providers for a limited time (until the next encryption tweak or key change).

It can also stop your receiver craving cigarettes or leaking air, depending on the patch applied.

thanks my friends for this. is the patch= the key.bin file?
basically i need to upgrade my receiver's software in order to get more channels,so i am going to upgrade from b39.01 to b.39.02 with an uptool exe file ( i am talking rubbish let me know). what i cant understand is why cant i access all the channels if i have inputted all the correct keys onto the receiver?

from the firmware version a receiver has , how can you tell if you have viacess/media or niagra vision?
