Starview box updating
and then gone to a $ channel - sits there with updating message on screen for an age.If I move to Movies Sci-Fi it does the update and then gives me that channel - it will also give me a selection of other channels (apparently random).A few years ago sky threatened to pull their channels from Chorus/NTL when their boxes were chipped in Ireland and the UK, I'd imagine that Liberty Global who own UPC and now Virgin media are now putting pressure on sky to do something as it's not just sky that is loosing revenue to cardsharing.It also has to be damaging in the UK to the likes of BT and Talk Talk who also provide TV services so I can't see it continuing much longer.Is this a firmware issue, and is there a newer version of the firmware for cloned boxes?Any help / pointers appreciated, even if it's just someone to confirm that I'm wasting my time and throw it in the bin.Or Go back to factory settings and rescan without splitter (no internet connection is needed to rescan.j Vi is a vi/vim editor clone; j Vi's core is a port to Java of major chunks of vim "C" code.
I've heard that the reason sky are upgrading everyone to HD for free is to combat this issue as the older sky boxes that do standard definition TV are not capable of using the newer card techniques Sky want to introduce.
Obviously the system is illegal in some way; it will be interesting to see how it's dealt with by Sky, since the uptake of these boxes seems to be reaching epidemic proportions.
By the way, this is a totally innocent thought on my part, I'm a legitimate Sky subscriber and intend staying that way.

I've been reading and hearing a lot lately about these 'dodgy' Sky boxes, i.e.receivers capable of receiving Sky with the decoding done via a broadband connection - 'Cardsharing' it's called.
