Default B3V Card Swap Code Named DaVinci

There has been a lot chatter about the upcoming card swap for B3V, you can view some details on channel 263 - SWAP! (B3V 91W Nimiq 1 3)

This card swap is code named DaVinci and here is a C&P from a Bell Technician posted Feb 15, 2008 on some of the details (you may remember we had issues around this time);
C&P
"The card swap is actually an operation code-named DaVinci. It's main purpose is to prevent piracy (FTA, etc,) of course. Most likely the new encryption will be Nagra3. Cardless receivers will simply receive a REV update (there is a chip inside the receiver instead of the card) and that will be it. Currently, it seems that only Ontario is being targeted and other provinces will follow soon after. This is going to be a pain for customers who have un-activated IRDs (read:receiver) sitting around because if they aren't present in a customer's account, no card will be sent for that receiver. I'm a Tech 2 agent at BEV, and as a "first-line" agent I can tell you that it'll be a real pain for us too...I'm so glad I'll only be working part-time for BEV now... I wasn't taking calls but I saw what it was like on last monday...agents couldn't even transfer calls to other departments, and apparently, from what I read here, 1-888 SKYDISH wasn't even answering! The lines weren't cut, I can tell you, the call dispatch queue was just overloaded!"

ROM 102 cards will be replaced with ROM 240 cards and all B3V sub receivers software version has to be E600 or above. Cardless receivers are currently going through software updates to ensure they are ready for the new ROM. B3V is experiencing some slow downs as legacy receivers and the 6100 seem to have a problem accepting a Rom 240 at this point.

Here is a C&P from Bell's Card Swap FAQ page found here: bell.ca/support/PrsCSrvTv_DTH_CardSwap.page?tab=0

C&P

1.Why do I need to replace my SmartCards?

To continue accessing your programming and prepare your receiver for future enhancements, you must replace and activate your new SmartCard(s). If you don't replace your card(s), your receiver will no longer be able to receive the satellite signal.

2.What's the purpose of this card?

All Bell ExpressVu, satellite receivers use SmartCards to help decode the programming information from our satellites.

3.Where is the SmartCard located?

On most receivers, the SmartCard is located at the front, on the left. The card fits into a small slot and, depending on your model, is either exposed or behind a protective panel. Some receiver models don't currently have a SmartCard in the slot. If this case applies to you, you just have to insert the new card in the slot.

4.What happens if I don't replace the card?

It's important to replace and activate the SmartCard in your receiver as soon as possible. Otherwise, your programming will eventually be discontinued and you'll be required to return any unused new SmartCard. Failure to do so will result in a $100 SmartCard charge being applied to your account.

5.How do I perform the SmartCard replacement and activation?

A package containing your new SmartCard(s) and detailed instructions on how to replace and activate them was sent to your billing address. If you need further assistance, please call 1 866 395-9995 to speak to a representative.

6.I misplaced the new card(s) you sent. What should I do now?

Please call 1 866 395-9995 to speak to a representative.

7.How long will it take to replace and activate my new SmartCard(s)? When's the best time to perform the swap to ensure I don't miss my favourite programming?

It will take approximately 15-30 minutes for you to replace your new SmartCard, and then from 15 minutes to 2 hours for your programming to return to normal following reactivation. For more details on activating your new SmartCard, see question #14. Therefore, we recommend that you replace and activate the card at least 3 hours before your favourite show hits the airwaves.

8.What do I do with the old cards?

Once you activate your new SmartCard(s), your old card(s) will expire and no longer work. You should destroy any old cards after you can view your programming with your new cards.

9.Why should I want to replace the cards? How does it benefit me?

This replacement will prepare your receiver for the technological enhancements we're planning in the future. As such, you must replace and activate your new SmartCard(s). This is a necessary step we must take in order for you to continue receiving the same level of quality programming that you have enjoyed with Bell ExpressVu.

10.I replaced and activated my new SmartCard(s), but I can't seem to access my programming. What should I do?

Keep in mind that it will take between 15 minutes and 2 hours for your programming to return to normal after you've activated your new SmartCard(s). If you're experiencing a delay of greater than 2 hours, please go to the activation site, select the receiver with which you're having problems and follow the troubleshooting steps. If you still have issues after completing those steps, call 1 866 395-9995.

11.I have a receiver at my summer cottage and will not be able to replace my SmartCard until next summer. What should I do?

If the receiver at your summer cottage is currently on Temporary Programming Suspension (TPS), you will not receive your new SmartCard(s) in the mail until you reinitiate your service. You'll then be expected to replace your SmartCard(s) as soon as possible.

If your summer cottage account is not on TPS, you'll receive your new SmartCard with no delays. You're expected to replace and activate the SmartCard as soon as you're able to do so.

12.I have a receiver in my basement that I don't use and that isn't on my account. Will I have to replace its SmartCard?

No. Only receivers that are on your account and that are active are subject to the card replacement. However, if you plan on using this receiver in the future, you'll then need to get a new SmartCard.

13.I have a receiver in my garage that is active on my account but that I'm not currently using. Will I need to replace the SmartCard on this receiver?

Yes. All active receivers, whether rented or owned, will be part of the new SmartCard replacement. You'll be sent a new SmartCard for every receiver on your account, whether in use or not, and you'll be required to activate new SmartCards on all receivers.

14.I have installed my new SmartCard. How do I activate it?

Activate it using our online tool.

15.I have heard about the new SmartCard activation, and my friend has received his new SmartCards, but I haven't received mine. Will everyone be a part of this initiative?

Whether you've opted to rent or purchase your receiver, you'll eventually need to replace your SmartCard. In fact, all our customers will be expected to do so and to activate all their new SmartCards. The exceptions are the new 9242 HD PVR Plus receivers and 6141 HD receivers, which will not require a card replacement. The distribution of new cards is now in progress. Since this process will take several months, it's possible that you may not have received your replacement yet. You don't need to contact our customer service department nor to visit a Bell store. Your new SmartCard and all related information will be mailed to you at the address provided for your account.

This card swap will take months to complete and have sub customers activate the new cards. Expect this to affect FTA sometime late spring or early summer 2008!....As I get more info, I'll update this.


Cheers

I have a question concerning the FTA recievers. Will they be viable to use the new code, if and when it is de-coded or do we have to get new recievers in order to receive the new code that will be implemented by B3V. I believe the code we use now is Nagra 2 and if they are switching to Nagra 3 will the coders be able to write programs to handle this new code.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks very much in advance.

here is a question that I do not know...in the US they have been putting out cardless receiver fir some time...and they are still activating 102 on new installs...this I get from a installer
and all the receivers have a card slot..because they can change out to a different card if need be...but as I was told it would take a 1/2 hr to upgrade the receiver so it can be able to use the new card..but then they are back a system with a card again...taking they no card security away again
So what will hey do then...as soon as they change over the cordless receiver..they have to send the information down the stream..so coders can take that information and use it also..be it for FTA or a DN receiver
but what ever it is...it took dave 3 years to get caught up with the cost of the card change over...and they did not have to change the receiver....so that is a different deal DN and Bev as the post is saying...it is going to cost a bunch to to change over everything..and DN is flush with money..but they also buy a lot...making things like a major change over cost a lot...so they are going to have to do things slow...or stop buying other company's and satellites and it will hurt there own FTA sales

From what I've been reading the cardless receivers that have been in circulation for the past year and a half have been built to accept the code changes that are planned....the week before Valentines B3V started downloading updates to receivers connected to the phone lines.....A good majority of these updates failed causing the customers receivers to stop working (at least properly). As the technician said the phones were flooded! B3V quickly started rolling back the updates....

FYI...The card swap channel from what I've been told is only viewable by pirated receivers.....FTA!

This card swap is very costly and at this time is targeted at Ontario....There are 9 more provinces and a few territories as well....If I had to guess the ROM 240 is going to be a phased approach until they have successfully deployed throughout Canada....Then expect them to turn it all on. Hopefully with this approach, coders will have access to what will be expected and be ready when it does get turned on fully.

Cheers

I have a feeling this is going somewhere, if you know what I mean. We'll see.
