    Default Important information to all users of Digital Receivers

    Virgin Media have applied a code update which has crippled cable boxes across the country which were used for receiving cable TV illegally.
    Cable boxes affected include the Eurovox, Nokia Dbox, Starview and Kryptview.
    Users receiving cable TV illegally receive the error message “Please wait…code been updated” and no channels can be accessed.
    According to industry ****yst Ian Waller, “The change is causing false keys to be recorded on a ROM7 update, usually only 1 or 2 characters are wrong, this has been happening on ROM10 and ROM11 updates for the last year. A genuine card can handle the change, an emulator can not.”
    Virgin Media applied a similar change around a year ago, and it took almost a week for firmware updates for chipped boxes to keep pace.
    However, from reports coming in the changes by virgin may not be a simple one off event, but instead being applied on a daily basis.
    Although updates are available on the internet which try to keep track of the changes, if the code changes are being implemented on a daily basis this could make it very difficult for firmware updates to keep track.
    The result would be a victory for Virgin in their battle against cable piracy, and an end to the widespread use of cable boxes for receiving free cable TV. I strongly believe help for this problem is near .

    Thanks for the heads up - but we all know it's been coming for a few years, if you have a read around the cable forum you will see that VM are in the middle of their transition to 'Nagra3' and it is knocking out all hooky boxes.

    hi solly1 i think wot vermin r trying to do is too little to late as n3 is knocking on the door anyway, but at best these cripple coades can only knock out boxes for a short time, all useres will have to do is a quick re scan should sort it or a re flash, so no real harm done....

    A LITTLE THANX GOES A LONG WAY

    if you mean c/s it's not a fix it's a traders paradise.

    plus does any one know where the money goes when they buy these so called fta boxes that are used for c/s for all we know some off it goes to pay for terrorists.

    so remember that the next time you buy one. that's how these people make there money.!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yeah yeah and maKKy D,s gives half its profits to the IRA. I dont wanna start an issue here but not all dodgy actions end up with someone getting hurt, there are still some folk that do it for the hell of it (and to get free TV). I dont think me having 12 months worth of sLy movies after being ripped off for the previous decade and then some, is going to make a plane drop on the lawn of Buck palace??

    Urban Myths relating to organisations and terror campaigns, this is just one pairing.....there are many many more none of which are any more true than an episode of the X files my friend.
