Viewsat and Nagra 3 – by GoodFTA – GoodFTA FTA FILES all the timeBy
With the recent advent of PPV, MOVIE and some premium channels going Nagra 3, Lots of GoodFTA users and people on the internet have many questions on whats going on.
What you should know
Viewsat like many FTA receivers are scrambling and freezing on the PPV Movie Channels, International Channels, Canadian Channels and some Premium Channels.
This is not your receiver being broken or a hardware error or not having the latest FTA FILE. This is due to the new encryption system called Nagra 3.
What is Nagra 3?
Nagra 3 is the new encryption being used by Bev and Charlie. This is the 3rd Iteration of Nagra. It BREAK Nagra which has not been done yet, a Hacker must analize the hard and physically develop source code. Once the source code is written the FTA CODERS take this code and tailor it so when ECMS happen, the coders write the files. Hackers make a TON of money for short term work. Then Move on.
If Nagra 2 was hacked, why is not Nagra 3 Hacked Yet?
Nagra 2 was hacked due to a disgruntled Charlie Employee that stole the source code from work and sold it for 2 million dollars to Viewsat. We will all have to wait and see, rumor has it, there was a Nagra 3 hack, but the hacker was arrested.
Why do some Receivers have N3 Fixes and not Viewsat?
Its called IKS or Ethernet Card Sharing. It basically makes your receiver talk to the internet either wirelessly (like your laptop connecting to your router) or through ethernet cable (like your pc to your modem)
Some FTA Receivers have built in IKS and some have External IKS add-ons such as the Sonicview I-HUB (i-hub details)
Will Viewsat have a IKS FIX?
Yes, is releasing the new Viewsat Ethernet 2000. It is a new Receiver that has a built in Ethernet Port to connect up to the Viewsat Servers, so it will have all N3 channels available very soon
Read more about the Viewsat 2000 Ethernet Here -
Viewsat is working on a Serial IKS Dongle solution for the back of the receiver for their current models. They are more than likely releasing new models as well.
Just to let everyone know, the smart card slot on the Xtreme and Ultra could also be used for an ethernet connection. When you hear about a new Viewsat Network IKS receiver model or a Network IKS model coming out – this is all about business and not adding capabilities.
Will I have to buy something for my Viewsat to work?
If you want to keep your existing receiver you will more then likely have to purchase a network adapter that will be comming out sometime in June or July.
Ideally you will want to buy a newer receiver such as the Viewsat Ethernet 2000 or the HD device it will release later this year. New Receivers are comming as well.
Short story, to get a n3 fix in the next few weeks or month, you will have to AT LEAST invest in their network adapter, the new receiver will be out soon.
