Thanks LK. I know nothing comes really free. More questions for you: if ECM can cause blackout on FTAs and some DN/BEV devices, why won't DN/BEV do it 7/24 year round? Are there any technical difficulties for them to do so? What is DN plastic? Can they handle all ECMs?
DN plastic is DN receivers that use plastic access cards ....and the boys gave U good answers about ECM's..there is always a risk of legitimate sunscriptions being affected....
BUT DN will play a new game at least weekly to discourage us...new keys, various old ECM's, new ECM's, fake keys, activate BOTH key 00 and 01, fake continous autorolls, move channels from one transpondr to another or another satellite..
LK, in order for the subs devices to survive any of those tricks, how do they get updated prior to such change? thru air wave or using phone lines? for subs with different program packages, do they have the exactly same software installed in their machines? why won't coders publish the bin source code like other OpenSource software? so everyone interested can work on it.
I'll tell you why coders can't release the source code: Greed. Simple shortsighted greed. In the FTA wars, manufacturers are more concerned with being the only one with the "fix" so everybody works in their individual little shells. Kind of ironic that the code that is being protected is the same code that is being used to hack another guys property.
