    the software in the decorders can communicate with the server, have passwords on softwares, and each decorder and card has a unique identification number, able to switch it and write "stop descrambling or descramble".
    all this information is logged on the chip in your receiver by the server, and also on the chip on your card.
    so it is softwares codes and memorised.

    guess - vc number may flash on screen while communicating with server, and thats the way they have written their software, to display the number on screen.

    yes, it is done manually. they will ask their technicians to send a specific signal to the card, sometimes, as you mentioned on a specific channel.

    now, this signal will be decoded by your receiver and card, if the data matches then you get the channel. that data will have a specific timestamp, after that timestamp expires, the card ceases to work until such time that a new command is issued by the provider.

    Thanks Sir Cogil and Sir Boknoy for this explain.Is this issue of operator will same for all encryption type which is using a card?
    As in my experience , I renewal Ir**** 2 , Viaccess 2.6 , Conax and Videoguard cards.Among them Ir**** 2 is very easy and quick to renewal.May be it'll depend on operator/package I think.But other types r very difficult and long time to update new subscription.Plz. explain this one.
    And what's the mean of "VC" , is it Valid Card?


    Regards.

    thanx
    the vc numper or any code numbers r displayed on tv screen...is for stop and avoiding the commercial and mis-use of dth boxes by "cable operators".and also
    for confirming,which boxes r running which places.

    this all depends on the provider/operator. if your operator keeps on telling you "yes-yes" and nothing happens for quite sometime, time to think of changing providers if you have that option. it all boils down to the after sales support and customer service of an operator/provider.

    Yes sir Cogil , I need only 30 mins to renewal my I2 card (UBC) and I'm done this with my dealer.For Viaccess I need a day ( or two days ) to update my card although I'd been sent the cash.Also Conax but Mediaguard is little more quick then Conax and Viaccess.(I know that may be the delay of my dealer)
    But our 5 entertainment card is need for a week to renewal.lol:


    Thanks.

    just to mention,
    the same speed applies for non payments, you put on receiver in the morning and within 1 min nothing is watchable if the subscription expired by the midnight B4.
    though you get reminders of expiry, through stb mail a week to four days before expiry. some even send sms on mobile phones.

    still need an indepth of cable tv operations, any site would help
