    I have one, but not the security block.....I just upgraded to 3.0 and Gerber asked for the old parallel port one back.....gave me a USB one in exchange.

    If you can use it w/o the block....let me know?

    Yeah, I got one too. The block went bad. . . sent back to Gerber, upgraded to 3.0 and away we go ! I really liked 1.56. Don't like 3.0.:banghead:
     
  4. My only question, why would you want to use that program. I'd rather gouge out my eyes!

    We have 2 Omega CP stations version 1.56 that did not get upgraded.
    One has the parallel, one has USB.

    I wonder what would be considered a fair price though? Their biggest value is the ability to cheaply upgrade to the current version. Full retail is somewhere around $3400 I think, with the upgrade at only 6-700.
    Sort of like buying a used edge for the trade in value.

    Why do the security blocks go bad?

    The manufacturers have a routine that gets run when a change of dongle is required for an upgrade that disables the old dongle. This saves them from having to go through the inconvenience and expense of exchanging dongles. Many earlier LPT port dongles were disabled when Omega 2 was released which required a USB dongle.

    Hi Malkin,

    Just back tracking through last months threads and was interested in Omega 1.56 if available.

    I have the old LPT port doggle, with the 1.5. I've never upgraded because I bought Flexi 8.1. I'd be interested in knowing what its worth. I still use it once in a great great while.

    I have a copy of Omega 2.02 CP with USB dongle I may depart with. All fair offers will be considered.

    Big thanks Malkin and to Kevin and Janean at Minuteman Signs in Augusta, ME for helping get my Super Sprint online and especially for having the Omega 1.56 CP station.
