Viaacces or Irdeto? Will CCcam read either of them? Is one better than the other?

ESPN - anyone have the ESPN upgrade with this card? Just as good as Sky Italia?

Thanks.

Hi

The Irdeto one can be read with Oscam & Cccam, but can be frustrating to update

The Viaccess is probably easier to read & update

Hope this helps

Thanks for the advice. I bought a Viaccess card and hardware cam this week. I put it in(Wednesday) and it was virtually plug & play, read the card fine.

Then (Saturday 3/11/2012) I got "you do not have the rights to access this program" So I checked the "consultation rights" in the Hardware CAM menu, there are 3 entries in this menu????

1st - no start or expire date

2nd - start date expire date <<<<WTF??????
31/10/2012 2/11/2012 <<<<WTF??????

3rd - no start or expire date

According to the Hardware CAM menu, this card was activated on the day I put it in the receiver (31/10/2012) and was valid for three days or until 2/11/2012. <<<<<<< Is this normal??

I also checked the entitlements in CCcam, the date 2/11/2012 was the same as the hardware CAM reported, so I'm almost certain it's the card. Is there a normal or special procedure to activate these JSC cards? How do I know if it's "ACTIVATED"

I emailed the card supplier today, won't hear anything until Monday or Tuesday.

This is the first time I have ever used a hardware cam, how do you update the firmware? I selected "update" from the CAM menu but it displays "searching" for almost a decade, literally 30 min. It is a Smit CAM, and I'm thinking it's a POS from what I've seen/read.

BTW, a lot of people complain about the picture quality, I actually think it's good, IMO just as good as Sky UK SD. If I get the activation problems sorted, I'll definitely be renewing, as they have a shedload of NBA coverage.

New Al Jazeera cards com orally have a four day free period that will start when the card is in a receiver / CAM and on an al Jaz channel.
So I would assume that your supplier has forgotten to activate the card. Get in touch and ask them to activate it.
Good luck

Thanks for your help Trigger. It was not activated, the supplier activated it and It is working fine now.

Question...There are 3 entries on the "rights" menu, of the CAM, only one entry contains info...anyone know why? FYI, in my opinion the Smit CAM is PITA! The menus are very intermittent, only works when it wants to.

Next challenge...Is there English or original commentary on JSC channels? I mainly use it for NBA games, so obviously US commentary; is there an option in the audio settings I'm missing? There are options for English and Arabic for all channels, but when I select either, there is no change in the audio.

Thanks.

All depends on if the English audio is transmitted at the time, i find on live football that +3 and +5 and HD1 & 2 can have english audio live and then english is transmitted on most repeat programs

a lot of the live Spanish, Italian games have English audio commentary.

the tennis repeats on the 1-8 channels hasn't had it.

so guess it depends.

From satcesc . Com

Al Jazeera Sports has acquired the television rights of the Premier League, the highest level of the English football competition. So has revealed it own Arabic sports chain in its programming.

Al Jazeera Sports won the rights to broadcast the Premier League since the beginning of the 2013-14 season and until 2016, so this competition happens to be an exclusive to the chain with headquarters in Qatar.
So far these rights were held by the Abu Dhabi Sports channels. However, Al Jazeera has managed to seize the same that continues to be good news for the subscribers to the chain.
In fact, the English Premier League was one of the few competitions that Al Jazeera could not offer the broadcasts of their games.
For now it is not known if the Premier League by Al Jazeera Sports it will only be issued via satellites Nilesat (7 ° West) or you can also be seen by the rest of the satellites Eutelsat Hot Bird (13 ° this) and Badr 4 (26 ° this).
