Don't get excited. You cannot get TUTV without a valid subscription card, although it has been reported that you can use your Phoenix programmer as a CAM for an existing card (as with some other cards I believe), such that you can view TUTV on your PC. Big deal when you can already watch it on your telly.
Sorry guys, I forgot to turn on reply notification and didn’t realise anyone was interested.
Well I'd better explain myself then. Chris had the right idea, I was after some help beta testing a S*ca2 radegast CardServer. We got it working with all the Hauppauge / Nebula cards in the end and now with all DVB-T cards with BDA drivers.
BJonaSTICKS's quite right "You cannot get TUTV without a valid subscription card", youjust don’t have to be in the same county, or pay for it! Now you can't do that with "your telly".
The server is down at the minute but I'll post the details when it's up and running again.
Be careful if you decide to share your own TUTV card (or any other original card) with someone you don't know. If the group is not 100% trustworthy, you may be leaving yourself (and your subscription) exposed.
Thanks for the offer but I’m afraid I’ve finished testing for now, I’ll be posting a guide soon though.
You basically use a Phoenix interface to read the smartcard with a SoftCAM client on the PC or a passive Season interface to emulate the card in a standard set-top decoder.
I never really got to grips with MythTV but I know there is a radegast client for VDR[SC].
What model is that OnDigital box? Finding the right com settings for embedded cardreaders can be a real nightmare. If it has a common interface slot [that hasn’t been disabled] I know the AstonCrypt 1.05 CAM works a treat.
One last thought, the Netgem I-Player is very similar to the DreamBox [PowerPC running Linux] if some one could work out how to spoof the update hand-shake they could re-compile the kernel with the DreamBox cardsharing tools and use the NetGem’s network connection instead of using a season interface etc.
I'm a bit of a linux noob I'm afraid but I know it can be done. There is a CAM emulation add-on for VDR called VDR SC [Soft CAM] It has a SECA2 phoenix emulator and I think it now has a season emulator, radegast and NewCAMd cardserver clients.
It can be used with Myth by way of a wrapper called SASC [Stand Alone Soft CAM] That's about all I know so have a look at these threads:
