The old boxes are wee bit temperamental with no updates since ondig folded, my boxes don’t allow interactive they just shut down when you hit the red button so I would be surprised if they don’t have some probs with a TUTV card… bill :drink:

I have an old on dig box, all is working fine, ie codes for football and errr extra channels. Even the red button works. The only thing I dont have is a top up tv card, so I cant say if it would work, but I would have thought there would be no problem

No Probs mate

I have not been in this forum of late, so I am a bit out of touch with what is going on! As I dont follow football, I did not even know that Setanta had stopped. I tried the codes on it some time ago to see if it still worked, and it did, so did not take any more interest in it.

What first started me off on this whole “free TV” thing, was the guy who came to fit a TV aerial for me. I got talking to him and was asking him about sky, as I had a dish on the house I had just purchased, but no receiver box. I was interested in any “chipped” boxes he could get hold of. “ Oh yes mate” he said. “I got one at home been working fine”. Anyway this conversation went on for a bit, and we got around to price. £300!!!!! YES mate,……… I will have one of those than you very much. Yeah right, 3 years later I still have not got one. Do they even exist? (metaphorical question )

Then I got out the old on digital box , I remembered the days of Mr Sporty posting the hexes to download to your Gold card via your Elvis programmer. Ahhhh Bliss…..But needed more info for this tutv thing. so I turned to the world wide web, and after a long search found this forum. I think it was not long after tutv came out, but after extraview had stopped. That was a shame, because it was the sort of thing I was looking for, ie pay tv for free (the holy grail)

I then became obsessed with working out the codes, it did not matter what the end result was (free crap porn) I just had to work it out, I got it wrong many times, but thanks to people on this forum, with their help, eventually got it right. Then I thought it would be a good idea to make an exel spreadsheet to work it out for me. Many days later I had it, only to discover other people had got there before me, ie keygen. By then I had access to the closed room; the keygen was sooooo much better than my clumsy effort. Anyway the experience was useful.

After that I realised that the only “free” tv was the crap porn. I was so much hoping that more channels would adopt this method of access, or tutv would have been hacked. But it was not to be.

A work friend of mine has been into the whole “cable” hacking for some time, and he could never understand why I spent so much time on this for so little gain. I must admit, I do now tend to agree with him.

Anyway, the whole “experience” was an experience. Worth doing. I am now Just waiting for the next challenge to come along ……………Paragliding??? ..No….done that, and bought the tee shirt.

Any thoughts anyone??????

Surely its the challenge! When Extraview came out, a small band of us paid a quid in rotation to get some of the codes and then we manually hacked the code using a remote control (using the paid code as a basis) - took an hour or two, but then we could spread it around to those involved. After a while we got dumps from a DTT card to save having to pay the quid or use the remote (save to actually confirm when we'd cracked it).

TUTV doesn't have a good selection of channels and if they lifted their encryption (for a trial week to "entise customers" or similar) then I doubt I'd watch anything. It never stood a chance of getting hacked as any professionals with the abilities couldn't justify the time for financial reward. Of course Setanta, may well prove an inticement needed, but I think most people are thinking with their hearts and hoping rather than with their heads.

Yeah, don't get me wrong, I enjoyed doing it all. Like you said, it was a challenge. But I am just looking for another one now.

Hopefully someone will take up the challenge and hack it. Setanta have the rights to show alot of Football over the next four years. I dont think anybodys interested in TopUPTV but setanta is a different case, Hopefully one day!
