hello there-im new here so please bear with me!
i recently was given a ntl box which im told was chipped its a pace ditv-2000 it came with a card in it which has a planet on it and it says purple fun galaxy

now ive had a look around the forums and im assuming i have a fun card-my freind tells me he can get me an auto update card for this box but from what ive read i dont see how this is possible , also in the service menu it tells me i have 60000 credit ??? after getting it all set up i only get some free view channels (i.e bbc 1,2,3 ect) now i guess my questions are

1 what card do i have

2 are auto update cards for real

3 whats my best course of action to get everything on it

thanks for reading any help/info appreciated thanks

craig:Cheers:

Do a search for more info on programmers and how to get the box key off your fun card

Take your time and read through the guides, the advantage of doing the card for yourself is that you can spread the happiness through your m8's houses and get a lot of ale in return. Also if the cc's do change things and the cards don't au any more, it won't be too long before a new au image/ crack is out, that way you can reprog your own card instead of paying sone shister 50 notes every time....
Enjoy and happy reading......

I agree!! once youve learned to do it yourself it beats paying someone who is basically doing something your capable of doing...

The AU cards will from time to time require the card to be wiped clean and the image put back on as the ppv will fill up any reserves.... depends on how much you order i guess!

read through the guides and do a search...all the infos here and there if you look :)
