Hi

Another question on using the FTA sky card in the dreambox.

I was using the sky FTA card in a sly box until it broke. So then I put it in the DB 7020 with no problems to watch ch4 & 5 but now ch4 has gone.
I've never had to edit the config file with the boxid but now I think I have to. So, how do I find out the boxID 10 digit number without a sly box ?

How long since it's been in the original box?

Good question - I shall try it tonight.

Entered a 10 digit boxid number and used the other setting found in the idiots guide but no joy. CH5 still ok.

Also tried loading emu and config again and also tried newcs.

I don't think it has anything to do with box id. Are you in the UK actually? If not maybe your Astra 2 north beam signal is just not strong enough for channel 4.

And by the way, with mgcamd I can see all the channels I subscribe to, including the movie and sports channels without having to edit any files or enter the box id.

Thanks zamolxes but it was a problem with the FTV card being out of the slybox for a few months. After an overnight stay in the box its back on now.

I have never had my card out of the dreambox for a year with no problems.
It might be worth entering the boxid of the digibox you left it in any way.
Also in the config make sure:
EMM-G = yes
EMM-S = yes
EMM-U = yes

If using Newcs then
Block SA ,UA and GA should all be "NO"
