Eurovox firmware updated

Eurovox firmware updated

A Eurovox firmware update has reportedly been released, which aims to cope with the coding changes made by Virgin Media at the beginning of this week.

The firmware updates Eurovox Blue, Eurovox Red, and Eurovox Max V boxes.

However, users with cloned Eurovox boxes may still have problems with accessing cable channels despite the update.

A temporary fix was already made available across the internet in the form of the Bigmaq toolbar, which automatically updates new keys for a range of cable boxes, including Starview, Dbox, and Kryptview.

However, the move by Virgin Media shows that the company is increasingly serious about tackling unauthorised use of its programming, and further coding changes may yet take place to disrupt cable viewing by non-subscribers.

Of course, the point needs making that using a cable box to access subscription channels without paying for them is illegal, and users are strongly advised to consider the legal implications of cable piracy.

We’ve already seen over the previous months how media companies have been granted large fines against individuals for accessing channels without proper authorisation, not least pub landlords.
