I went out this morning to 3 different Bell World Stores in Oahawa and asked about the card swap for the new up and comming Nagra 3 change. Since I only own a 4100 series receiver for BELL I was only told about the 4100 series. It is a newer receiver... EVERYTHING IS BUILT IN and DOES NOT REQUIER A NEW CARD when nagra 3 takes effect. Not one person could tell me when that will take effect. but 4100 series receiver subscribers are not going to receive a new card IT IS NOT NEEDED. Please do not call me a liar or that I am wrong about this info ... At least I went right to the source and found out what I just shared with you all.If you don't believe me go out and ask for yourselves.

I also did some reading on the interent and found this ...

Bell Expressvu dishes out new signal security upgrade

Bell Expressvu dishes out new signal security upgrade

Posted by : RiseStar , Lounge0101 Administrator



Similar to its security upgrade in July 2005, Canada's leading satellite broadcaster, Bell Expressvu is in the process of a new signal security upgrade in an effort to curtail its' rampant piracy problem.

Bell Expressvu utilizes equipment and signal encryption technology manufactured by Echostar, the U.S.'s second largest digital satellite broadcaster. Echostar's Dish Network has been plagued by piracy issues for many years, despite numerous expensive attempts to resolve the problem. This has lead to widespread piracy issues for Bell Expressvu due to the similarity in technology. Recent estimates peg more than 2 million pirates are currently receiving Dish Network and Bell Expressvu programming without payment.

The Bell Expressvu satellite signal is encrypted, allowing only authorized users, such as subscribers to decode the signal and allow them to view the channels that they are subscribing to. Signal pirates exploit vulnerabilities in the encryption technology, including the satellite access card, which uniquely identifies a subscriber to the satellite network to "unlock" the encryption without authorization.

To combat this, once it becomes obvious that the signal encryption technology has been compromised, the satellite broadcaster must upgrade their "conditional access" technology, usually requiring a software upgrade to subscribers receivers in addition to a replacement "access card".

Bell Expressvu has already begun to upgrade subscriber's receivers in preparation for the new access card which will begin mailing to subscribers shortly. Once the subscriber receives their new access card, they simply remove the old card from their receiver (if equipped), insert the new access card and follow the on-screen instructions, activating it either online or via a toll free phone number. Certain Bell Expressvu receivers may have an empty card slot, in which case, the new access card slides in and the identical activation procedure takes place. To ensure the new access card is updated in short order, once mailed to subscribers, the old access card will be automatically disabled with a short period of time.

Bell Expressvu states the new card activation procedure will take 15 minutes to 2 hours for programming to return to normal.

Well speaking for myself the first part of my post states that I did go to 3 different Bell World Stores and asked about the card swap Thats is hardly copy and pasted info . I also gave the link to where i got the other info from. http://sattv.lounge0101.com/
I will say tho that the people working at the stores I went too didn't know when the card swap would really take effect. Again that is NOT all copy and pasted information.

Well unlike some people that Do ONLY COPY AND PASTE info....Like I mentioned I went out and asked the right people at the right places. NONE of my first part of my post was found on the internet but IN THE STORES THAT I PAY MY BILLS TO! If I can't trust them then who can you trust to get the RIGHT INFO from? I am not dissing anyone in this tread/forum but posting what the store workers told me. After all I AM A PAYING CUSTOMER. Why would they lie to me?
BTW... thank you! devin and sada
