Still here, the stats suggest a fair few people still stop by but I guess the sat scene has had it's day and has been overtaken by streaming and just downloading from torrents or sites like putlocker
 
I keep meaning to update the site, but as its so quiet not sure if there really is any need to.
 
It is nice to read back and look at some of the topics over the years, it's really surprising how things have moved on from pic cards and hexkeys Smiley

Hi to anyone still reading this (Hi Steve, know you're still here) just wondering who is still around.. I can't leave this place, it has too many happy memories from the past to just dump  Wink
I'm using a kodi box these days and as I have a Samsung TV I use IPTV with a build on it for (all) other things....  Smiley Smiley (be rude not to)
anyone wanting to say hi please do

Has anyone had a look at this
 
http://www.ph-mb.com/products/sky-fw-tool
 
Just wondering if the firmware could be modified for recording purposes like the old pvr2, i suppose whats key with later skyboxes is the sky modified linux firmware and its security checks prohibiting access via jtags.
 
Does anyone know if any of these later model sky boxes have bga chips in use?
 
Cheers

Just got a hold of a Pace 3100 and I want to perform the JTAG flash to the unit. I cannot find any sources of information even on this site on how to do it. It just says file not found. Does anyone know how I could perform it?

Yes sure Tony,.. if I am successful I will of course let you know. I have a feeling though that the date of termination,.. 01/01/2017 may not have been a coincidence, but perhaps built into the patch??
I would though, like to access the original thread to refresh on a few things..
 
Regards, Liam

IIRC a reflash resolved the issue... but I could be wrong

I had thought this patch no longer worked as from 1/1/2017..  
My boxes all lost recording function having lost one tuner? I would be interested to know if these have started to work again or need to be reworked..

I'd stick with Win7 if you are able to, Win10 does odd things!
 
The Thompson box could be modified but are not easy to get hold of!

Thanks Steve, I'll keep you posted, I have got the diagrams and software downloaded
 
Will this Jtag process work on Win 10 or am I better sticking to Win 7 ?
 
Was there no other box that this was ever possible to do to, I hear a while back there was a Thomson box that could be modded also !
 
Thanks

I've been going to try this for years, I have someone I know selling an old 2nd Gen 3100
 
Would this still work in 2018 ?
 
Would be ideal for recording the odd channel etc
 
Thanks

That would be perfect, can we broadcast this question on the site main page to see if anyone has?

Has anybody managed to catch OTA firmware for one of the HD boxes?
That they could possibly upload.
My DVB-S card is playing up at the minute and giving errors.
