Over-writing of channels on Thor2
22nd July,1997 :-
Several people have pointed out in the satellite-related Usenet groups
that ,using Nokia digital Boxes (9500 or 9200),they can easily install either
the Filmnet Package on 11.278 MHz **or** the Nordic package on
11.174 MHz but not both. What happens is that one overwrites the other.
Again most people blame this on a bug in the Nokia software.
I have found that exactly the same thing happens using an Italian
Seleco Digital receiver which has different hardware and software !!
I believe the PID's for some of the channels within both multiplexes
are similar or identical -so the receiver can't distinguish between them.
Once again this doesn't just happen on Nokia receivers -so if it's a
"software bug" as some have called it,it's a pretty pervasive one.
Has anyone tried on a different manufacturer's receiver (i.e. other
than Nokia & Seleco) ???
Please email me if you have further info.
Nokia 9200's are now appearing with CAM's fitted.UK trade price
(you have to add VAT to this) is around 350UKP -i.e. 50 UKP adder
for the (Irdeto) CAM.
Not much use without a smartcard,of course.
That's it for now.
