    Not sure what version that is. Wanna get a chip for it.

    A website says they manufacture the Magic 4.1 themselves but lots of people claim it's fake. I have found two sites selling it so far. One site sells it for $34, the other for $12.

    If it is fake, which is the ultimate chip to buy for the system with my version number? Thanks very much,

    That is a brand bew V.7 system. The ultimate chip is the DMS3 right now. And the messiah 2 is also very good. Your system is great for mod chips so it really doesnt matter.

    Thanks a lot for the info! I was hoping this was a version 7 system. I guess I got lucky.

    This DMS chip seems quite expensive. Read about it......interesting. What makes it better than Magic and Messiah?

    It's programing will be able to be upgraded in the future without having to change the chip. It has some other bells and whistles as well. As far as the Magic goes, most of what I have read about them is not so great. Some people use them and all is well, others aren't so lucky. Its kind hit or miss from what I hear. They go for around $20 on most sites, the Messiah 2 can be had for $35. My guess would be it is worth the extra $15.

    k, thnx marvin...... I'll get the Messiah 2 if I don't get the DMS3. I want to get the chip that's the most convenient and - when it's installed - feels like there's no chip installed (you know, no weird way of having to load a game.....pressing lights, booting at a certain time, etc.). Is the DMS3 like that?

    I have heard good things about http://www.foundmy.com. I have placed an order with them through paypal, but where I did a bank account transfer rather than credut card, it will not clear until Tuesday. So we shall see what happens. The guy has a good record and he is listed on the Messiah website as an offical dealer so I am not too worried. The shipping was $8.00 for me. He's in Canada, I'm in the US.
