    Bought a freeview box before Top up TV was available are there any handset codes or hacks available to open up these options?

    Thanks.

    Top up TV have developed a system where you can view some of their programming without a TUTV enabled box.

    Details are on their Xtraview website here: http://www.xtraview.co.uk/

    The extraview channel and red hot can be manually tuned in with Nokia, Topfield and PC cards, you need to go to the digital TV newsgroup - they explain there how.

    As to the card system - if you have any of the following, Nokia*, Netgem*, Pace DTVA, old Ondody box, Topfield*, any IDTV* you can use a Titsup card, however * require a CAM - even an old Ondodgy CAM will work - I think Aston SECA CAMs are OK as well, or buy an official Titsup CAM for about £50 (on top of the card).

    Titsup is too poor to be considered for hacking as the cost of any kit involved and the cards required would be greater than just subscribing, so basically noone has bothered.

    So the conclusion is if you have a CAM slot or card slot you can have Titsup at £8 per month, and if you have a fully manual tunable tuner you can watch extraview.

    Please note I have explained how to get the pay channels legally, I mentioned pirating is not done to save people wasting their time looking for it, and if it had been done it would not be cost effective.

    The uk.tech.digital-tv mentioned system is legal!

    If you want it extra channels, pay fror then, or just use Freeview.
    Anyway, no one have hacked Tutv as it uses a more secure system than the old On Digital.

    Oh right - I can see that one standing up in court... Sorry your honour I was getting the channels for free because I didn't buy the right box.

    Give up - it can't be done and it's illegal and even if it could be done, discussing how to do it here would result in the post being removed and you being banned!
