I bought a dreambox dm600pvr from so far works ok got 250gig lappy hdd in there, have been using mgcamd/newcs in the bluepanel and Jaycar reader without any problems so far, question is will it keep my card updated, ie not let it expire?  i have noticed that mgcamd will allow new channels automatically when i call sky to subscribe to new channels, eg movies or sport packages, but does this mean it will keep the card alive and not let it expire like ive had happen in the past with cccam?  it doesnt seem allow unsubcribing to channels, ie i call sky and unsubscribe from movies or sport, mgcamg doesnt update the card for some reason, hence why im a bit sceptical as to whether the card is being updated properly?  for the time being im having to return the card to my skydecoder once in a while otherwise it just expires and i end up having to call sky again to get it reactivated.
