Card Hacks


Card Hacks simply counts the number of times the card has been updated. A card with a USW of 5 has been updated 5 times, for example. H-Cards do not currently get updated anymore...code changes are done through something that is a little different, called a dynamic update.For a more detailed explanation of a If you currently have a subscription and are able to view 'some' pay channels with your card (without the use of a 3M i.e. modifications to your card you may skip to step "4.0 Initial Calibration Procedure" - you DO NOT need to CLEAN your card. 1) Connect your Unlooper/Loader to the Com port of your PC and insert your HU card directly into the card slot. 2) Double click on the Extreme HU icon and you will be brought to this main welcome screen. In the bottom left corner written in green you should see "Com1: Ready" and "Device: Detected". If you can see this you are ready to proceed. Otherwise: - Select the 'File Menu' and click 'Settings Select the Com port your Unlooper/Loader is connected to under the 'Loading Settings Click Save and Exit HU loader/HU or H unlooper H follow Procedure 5.1 & repeat Section 4.0 ON - Blinking OFF every 3 to 7 secs Manual OFF/Frozen Incorrect Calibration setting STORED/LOCKED OR Initial 1 minute warm-up completing Wait 1 minute. If the problem persists follow Procedure 5.1 & repeat Section 4.0 Blinking rapidly Automatic OFF/Frozen Auto Calibration FAILED Use Manual Calibration see Section 4.0 procedure 4.2, 4.3 OR 4.5) GENERAL NOTES: 1) If you loose video and the Green Calibration LED is NOT lit during the freeze/blackout then there is a problem with the code on the HU Card you are using. You should ensure that you have cleaned the card and have applied the latest USW (Procedure 3.3). In rare cases the DSW key on your card may be corrupt. In this case you should perform Procedure 3.3 again without applying the update HEX (i.e. clean card only). In this case your will get the DSW through the receiver naturally. This may take anywhere from a few seconds to 30 minutes. NOTE: The Avenger SE will NOT corrupt your DSW key, however it may already have been corrupted before you began using the Avenger SE. 2) If you loose video and the Green Calibration LED IS lit, the calibration setting currently being used is NOT optimal. Take note that this may happen during Automatic Calibration mode and is a NORMAL programmer, and Hu & H reader. This dss unlooper is compatible with the Hu & H unlooping codes 3) Select the 'Card Menu' and click 'Read Card'. You will see it begin to attempt reading the card. This should take no more than 30 attempts. Once complete you will see the code on your card in the Message Window. 4) Select the 'EEPROM' menu and click 'Clean EEPROM'. You will be asked to confirm if you would like to continue, click YES. A dialog box will pop-up once the EEPROM has been cleaned - Click OK in this box. 5) Under EEPROM Info in the main screen, verify that your USW is 0800, and note your DSW value. Should Microsoft consider licensing JavaCard? If your USW is at 0800 and you are prepared for your DSW to update in the receiver you may skip to step 10). If you are unsure you may safely perform step 6) onwards anyway. 6) Download the Hex update file to your computer by right-clicking HERE and clicking Save Target As Not really JavaCard is usually licensed by card Manufacturers. Microsoft does not currently produce cards. a stream of data. It is specifically the waves of encrypted (scrambled) data that are sent down from DirecTVís satellites up in space. When you tune to a channel, it is encrypted. The access card then computes the datastream, and if the card says the channel is authorized, it descrambles the H-Cards do not currently get updated anymore...code changes are done through something that is a little different, called a dynamic HUCards Card Hacks
