I have not found any information so this is why I am asking in here. Depending on what decoder you have (system) sometimes you need to use a CAM module in order to use a smart card in it to view channels.
This depends on what system you are using, what provider (sky digital) and so on.
Anyway, I found some pages and information about this. For example the Dragon CAM can be upgraded if you have the right hardware. This is good.
Now to my question !
Can all CAM modules be upgraded and if I don’t have the tools for that can a Sattelite technichan upgrade it for me ?
Or do I need to get in touch with the channel provider (for example sky digital) and they will upgrade it for me ? Seems strange if you can’t get this service, why throw away a perfect working CAM module (only that the firmware in it is a bit out of date).
I have a Conax CAM and it had a sticker on it, saying it was v3.03 and the website I found where they have CAM’s you could buy, says that the Conax CAM they have is v4.0
It would be nice if you could help me out since I have upgraded the all of the decoders in the SMATV system we have here, but I need to upgrade the CAM modules, if that is possible ? (instead of buying new ones).
Oh as a last question, I read before that Dragon CAM can acceppt SKY digital smart cards. Is that so ? can I then use any decoder I like to view sky or do I need to get a specific sky decoder and a SKY card ?
Are there any other specific sites aimed towards Sattelite stuff (looking for more forum sites like this one).
