Nagra 3 - Has it been cracked?

I've heard recently of reports that Nagra 3 has been cracked in Manchester.
A sales person I was talking to in Maplin's said he had an engineer from NT* in with him last week who insists that it has been cracked.

I'm not one for sending out false hope but just passing on what I've heard - was wondering if anyone has heard similar or not?

I would think that this is highly unlikely!, BUT I would love to be wrong.

Never heard that one, agree with you SG8, think its unlikely, would have been buzzing about the forums if it has been cracked. :dunno:

Hi,

found this by googling. Perhaps old news as of the post date


Nagra 3 answers, here!
I got this emailed to me & thought it was a good read!!

C&P from Wilmero (9/13/08)

Ok, Since we all know N3 is coming and people will be asking the same questions over and over without reading older threads with the same title, I will answer a few of your "yet to be asked" questions here:

Q- When is Nagra3 going to be here?
A- N3 will be here very soon before the end of the year. Sooner for Bev, and about 6 months after for Chuck.

Q- Will my current FTA receiver be able to handle it?
A- If N3 is hacked successfully, your FTA receiver will be able to handle it. It was said back in the N1-N2 days that the Pansat 2500 wouldn't be able to handle N2 but we all know that now to not be the case at all.

Q- Is N3 hacked and will they be able to hack it?
A- At this time we don't know for sure but strangely enough, the coders don't seem to be worried about it at all so that should tell you something. Anything is hackable, remember money can make anything happen! The hardest part will be glitching into the new cards.

Q- I see alot of channels moving to Mpeg4 and the providers plan to move everything to Mpeg4 soon, will I need an HD receiver to view the channels?
A- NO, Mpeg4 is just a compression method, it does not mean it is HD. While HD programming is mostly Mpeg4 at the moment, that does not mean it has to be, in fact they also broadcast HD in Mpeg2.

Q- Will I need a new receiver when Mpeg4 is the main stream?
A- Yes, unless you have a HD FTA receiver, those already receive Mpeg4.

Q- How soon will everything turn Mpeg4?
A- Not for quite awhile, as it would require the providers to swap out a great majority of their sub receivers first that are only Mpeg2 capable.

Q- If I live in the U.S. will my receiver stop working once everything turns digital?
A- No, your FTA receiver (and any other television viewing receiver) is already digital.

Q- Will we be down for awhile once N3 hits?
A- Possibly Yes, the coders likely will not release any fix until the providers have completely switched over so get a backup ready whether it be recorded movies or a minimum subscription. Only time will tell.

Q- How will we know when N3 is upon us?
A- You will know when some of your premium channels start dropping off and a rescan will not bring them back for viewing. Usually the providers start with International and Porn as those have the least subscribers incase anything goes wrong.

Q- Is Dave hacked?
A- Many trusted and extremely credible sources say that Dave is hacked, but due to the wrath of Dave and the consequences of messing with his patented signal, it is underground and the smart ones who are staying quiet are enjoying Dave. Not very many though. That is why Dave releases new cards, not because he wants to change the logo, but because there is a weakness. Remember, changing cards costs money!

Q- Why can't we get NFL Sunday Ticket?
A- Because NFL ST is being broadcast using N3 encryption.

Q- I was thinking about upgrading my receiver but now I'm not so sure with N3 right around the corner, what should I do?
A- We always recommend an upgrade whenever possible however, make sure you upgrade with a brand that is reliable in their support, that will ensure that once N3 is hacked, you will be one of the first on your block to have TV again! There will indeed be price gouging on FTA receivers for the first ones to come out with the N3 fix. You can bet on that! Stay ahead of the game people

well as we dont have N3 in the UK if someone heard that in Manchester lol they must have been talknig about ireland maybe. AS far as i know there are no plans yet to change over to N3 in the UK - but forgive me if im wrong!
Here in the UK we are safe for now. But i have bought a Krypt - just in case as they are meant to be theonly ones that work when/if it does happen. I now have 3 different boxes and it will be interesting to see if and when what happens and which box outlasts the other

Hi All,
Yeah thanks for the replies - I assume it hasn't been cracked then from the nature of the replies.
I too went back to the NT* digital+ box for the extra 50cents a month. The record function works well if I'm honest & overall I'm quite happy with it but needless to say I went for the standard package (no movies or sports). The eurovox will stay in the drawer until it's big return date :-)

Like another person was saying for the football (well it's over now....) I went to iraqgoals.net & they stream lots of different sports live. The quality isn't th best (depending on the number of concurrent users I guess) but it's better than not having any sport.

Of course you'll need to get yourself a VGA cable from your PC to the TV. A 5 metre cable in Maplins is about €40 I think but I got one for €7 from ebay - works perfect, game on!
God bless e-bay.

I actually have been reading a bit about this on other forums, and a couple of people have been suggesting that it has been cracked in Italy, and maybe the US.

Not sure how reliable this info is, so will just have to wait and see i suppose! :)

the only n3 broadcast in manchester would be on sat same as on my sat dreambox, n2 is wide open on sat and streamed side by side with n3 and lots of reports of a few channels here and there been open for a day, with n3 they can just change the rev and black screens again, there wont be a complete n3 hack until all providers and all rev's have been opened and even then they can create more rev's and its back to the drawing board again so someone will have to find a major loophole in n3 to be able to say its a complete working hack, lol i know ppl still havin trouble with n1 and that is sooo easy compared to wat ive heard about n3:hop mad:
