As canal+ has switched to this new card, the time of nonautoupdating cards
will be over..
Only a question of time before the remaining channels will follow in that
Although there is said to exist fully working autoupdating cards they are
Cracking keys as they change will be of no use....

Tele-Text says they will be back on the old frequency when Sirius 2 is
running, at least before 15 December, and possibly earlier. The old
transponder did indeed just stop working. They also refer to the
transmission on 1 degree west, 11.341 GHz V, as an alternative, and gave no
indication whether or when that this would close down.

Ah yes, but who was the first to operate *from* Europe ..?
CNN may well have been the first 'on-air' but I reckon Sky News was
broadcasting from a European base [IE London] *before* CNN opened
facilities over here ...
