Hi,

i've just setup my new DM600pvr & trying to decide on the emu.

I've previously used gbox, but everyone seems to now use CCCam.

Has anyone done a comparison of the two in regards performance, network bandwidth used etc?

I used to get a lot of picture break-ups reading my Sky card with gbox.

Sorry if this is the wrong place, but I'd like someone to describe the differences from a technical standpoint.

I have used both gb0x and cccam. I have a uk NDS card.....its cccam all the way. Most people using an nds card with cccam overclock their card

They are mostly the same in performance BUT ccc is alive and gbox is old and no updates for a loong period.

Between the 2 i would say this
.cccam
- very stable on nds on hop1
- very bandwith hungry be prepared for a few gigs\month
- very good speeds on hop1, instant, all providers
- not very compatible with high speed downloads, lost of breaks in nds, fine on the others
- really hates lag, the fewer peers you have the better, on my box 30 peers runs smoothly
- can be harder to setup, depending on your particular needs, it has lots of options and settings to play with
- can't have cccam on XP

.6b0x
- fast
- not as realiable as cccam
- low bandwith consumption
- sucks in nds, good on the rest
- instant speeds on seca, nagra
- not as picky with dists, dist2 almost as good as dist1 on most providers (excluding nds)
- lag is not such a big issue as ccam
- can't handle nagra3 as well as cccam

If 6b0x were as stable and as good on nds and n3 as cccam there would be no need for the later. A few things might be missing on this comparison but i think it can give you an idea of what to expect.
Go for cccam.
