It is a carry over.

Way back in the day.. when you replaced your access card. It was a two step process.

First step... tell the IRD that you where replacing the card (and it stored key information in the flash area of the IRD)
Second step... put the new card in, and the IRD would update the card.

However with the current generation of Cards, and technology... those steps are not really necessary... but it is possible that the code needs to be there to comply with the NDS security steps.


There is no large scale Access Card replacement program occuring for ANY receiver class... let alone the HR20

So, if it's not a problem Earl, why do some units (mine) say it, and some don't (like the post above)...
Couldn't tell you on that one.

I'll have to look at my units when I get home.
