I've been happy with my DBox for some time. I got it up and running some time ago with the help of the good people on here, and I have tried to put a little back through donations and hopefully some helpfull posts. It didn't take long before friends and family were on my case to sort them out as well, which I duly did.

The trouble now is that i'm working away from home all this week, and my phone is ringing off the hook due to recent cable changes. Everyone I know has lost their pictures (they all have the Zogre image, in N*L Glasgow area - it never gave any trouble before now).

I've been trying to get to the bottom of what exactly is happening, but after a couple of hours searching i'm still not sure (and the hotel internet rates im paying are horrendous!).

So far, as I understand it, practically all of the standard Pace boxes/cards are now off, as well as a certain percentage of DBox's (depending on the image used). Can anyone explain in simple terms what has happened here (e.g. is it to do with the autoroll key function?). Why do some images work and not others? What are the chances of other images going defuct in the near future? Can anyone suggest what image I should try next for my area?

I was in the process of buying a few more DBox's for friends/family for XMas. What is the general opinion, is this a bad idea, are we going to lose free cable altogether in the near future?

Thanks in advance for all those who take the time to reply......

Cheers.

Its just evocamd they are hitting and only old versions at that, best bet is to reflash with an image which uses newcamd, both liam and gav have done one (in downloads on here) as for the future nobody knows for sure, i think the cc dont seem to like us getting free stuff off them ( strange i know, ) so i would think they are going to keep trying to shut us down, hopefully we can stay one step ahead of them lol

Boxcracker still works if you change the evocam
I have tried to upload the fix but .rar are now classed as invalid and maximum size of 39.1kb for zip files
This fix was for zgore images but works 100% on my daughters boxcracker.
I can upload a working 2x boxcracker but at 39.1kb per part there are going to be a lot of parts :)
I don't mind emailing it if anyone wants it then pm me.

have fun.

Thanks for that, would be nice at £70, but at least I have a ball park figure to work with :)

there is/was one on ebay.de for 50euros (buy it now) .. thats a bargain ;) shipping cost is 17euros to uk from de, must ebayer are happy to send over as long as u pay. just getting the money to them if you dont have an account can be a bit annoying as no one uses paypal in .de ...
