Just Read on another forum that they are testing a Thompson Decoder to replace the Sagem Decoder used by Chorus and the Pace decoder used by NTL. Could this be the end of the DBOX/Starview/Dreambox fun? has anyone on here know of anyone who got one of these Thompson boxes?

Unless the are going to replace all STBs to enable a new encryption system, there should be no problem, Even if they do this, it still may be posible to write a new image foe the Dbox Dreambox etc.

i was on the phone to ntl the other day as soon as i got the letter saying they were changing to UPC Ireland and i was told that there would be no change of hardware (modems or STB's) its just going to be a different company, and the new STB they're testing is more than likely a HD STB

It would cost them too much money to change all the hardware in the knowledge that somebody is going to crack their new system anyway.
