hi m8 i'd recommend either the diablo lite cam or t-rex super module if you were to get a new cam.

i've just uploaded the new firmware and loader to the downloads for your reciver and it should open tps on hotbird m8

sorry slaughterman i misread the post lol. there hasnt been any new patches/firmware for the echostars since may which will be well outdated in terms of keys wise and may not even emulate the MECM which is now on premiere,so it looks like a cam for decent channels

i think if im going to buy a new cam, i may as well get the technomate 1500 super. is there plenty of support still for this reciever ?

yes m8 there is plenty of support for this reciever still,however you may start to find it hard buying one soon as they are no longer manufactured and are being replaced by the 5200 see here Technomate 5200 D USB - ?75.00 : Wizard Satellite, Satellite receivers, dishes, lnbs and equipment (To view links or images in this forum your post count must be 1 or greater.
