Thread: How do keys work?

    How do keys work?

    Hi I have a pansat 2500. I check your site everyday to see if there is a new fix. I'm wondering how the keys work that you guys talk about and how long that lasts for. If somebody could explain to me in the simplest step by step way how to do this that would be great. Thanks very much Jon

    Re: How do keys work?

    All satellite signals have an encryption key like a password that decodes the signal. As time goes by the satellite providers change the keys. Sometime often! As July 31 2007 DN has started morphing(changing) keys. They are currently changing the keys every 2-3 hours during the day. To get by this the autoroll was invented! The autoroll gets the keys for you so you don't have to enter them. There is currently no autoroll fix for:

    1) Fortec Ultra
    2) Pansat 1500
    3) Pansat 2300
    4) Pansat 2500
    5) Most clones

    All other receivers we support on this site should have working autorolls.

    If yours is not in the list your in luck. If yours is, you need to enter the keys in with your remote.

    Here is how:

    1) Press menu Button on your remote control.
    2) Select Parental control and press OK
    3) Select second pin and enter "0000"
    4) Select nagravision2 and press OK
    5) Select provider ID ( 0101 is for Dish Network ) (0901 is for Bell Ex Vu)
    6) Select key Number. Each provider has 2 key numbers(00 and 01) Use the 'vol button' of your remote to select desired key number Set 00 than.
    7) Select Key Data first line and enter the first 16 digits of the key labeled 00 or 86 (depends on model).
    8) Select Key Data second line and enter the last 16 digits of the key labeled 00 or 96(depends on model).
    9) Press OK to save.
    10) Go back to Key number window and set key number to 01.
    11) Select Key Data first line and enter the first 16 digits of the key labeled 01.
    12) Select Key Data second line and enter the last 16 digits of the key labeled 01.
    13) Press OK to save.
    14) Press exit
    15) Arrow down to autoroll option and press OK
    16) Arrow down to Dish or bev depending on your which you have and turn them off other wise your keys with change on you and you will have to reenter them.
    17) Press exit a few time till your out of the menus.

    Your should now have TV for 2-3 hour. Double check the keys you entered if it don't work.
    Until an autoroll for your receiver is released this is the only way you can do it.

    Hope this helps you!

    Re: How do keys work?

    Thanks but holy crap. It sounds like I should buy a newer receiver thats not on that list. Any suggestions on a model and a safe reputable place to order one? Thanks again for all those instructions but I'm a high school dropout construction worker, my brain almost exploded just reading that. Jon
