ok new to this. managed to flash a irdeto cam to 2018 (via posts here)
and have downloaded forum details to read up on this. However have written loads of goldcards using nobbys links (bias to sites with possible english info) but as yet have loads of hotbird channels i cant watch.........the freecam is supposed to allow access to 3 formats, however what kind of key file should i be looking for. I am using a vxmulti and gold cards?

thanks in anticipation

Hi Teame,

The hotbird channels you can't see wouldn't happen to be irdeto II would they? There are quite a few of them on hotbird and there are no codes available as yet, or at least none that work as far as I know.

Sorry Teame, I just read you initial post properly, for three in one or five in one files you normally need either a silver card or a fun card. This may be why you're not getting anything.

ive got a silver but am clueless what to do with it? the gold requires 24c16 but for silver? also how can you tell if the pic eeprom files are ok to use on a silver.........all i seem to have learned from nobbys list is that there are loads of files to download
and that as a brand new person in this field i have a huge learning curve........was hopping for slightly more success than i currently have enjoyed!

[updated:LAST EDITED ON 12-Apr-02 AT 10:03 PM (GMT)]what you should be looking for are 5in1 files, generally the DS9 ones are very good, you should be able to get something that will work on the satkoos site.

The silver cards require files for the pic16F877 chip with 24c64 Eeprom

There may be some receiver settings for the CAM to be made and remember, I know it may sound silly, but the card doesn't go the same way up in all receivers, I think it goes contacts up on the Humax.

For silver card you should use a Ds9 file used with a PIC16F876.
Try the Satkoos Ds9 5in1 http://www.satkoosclub.ubb.cc/

Program this with the vxmulti software making sure the correct card type is selected. ie. pic 16f876 Smartcard THRU.

You can check your card is programmed ok by going into the menu options of your reciever,selecting conditional access, then in the freecam menu choose status. top to the screen you should see the card number. If there is no number there is a problem.

Try the palco channels they should work.

What type of reciever do you have?

I bought a technosat vaci 5700 (looks like a big mistake?). It has an inbuilt red viaaccess 478 cam and I have also got the irdetto 1 which i have flashed to 2-018. The receiver regognises the freecam but doesnt appear to work (though i do get the card number in status).
I am struggling to tune to other satellites so I only have hotbird to work on. It didnt download the Palmo? channels!
Is anyone familiar with this receiver? internet search mentions a t1 model but nothing on this one.
