Hi guys

What's the difference between softcam keys for certain receivers?

For example, the encryption system starting with I and rhyming with Lerdeto in the generic sofcam.key files have a 32 byte key but for the Clark Tech one it appears to be 16 bytes.

Why is it and is there a way to convert between them?

Also, what's the relevance of the "Slot x" sections in the files?

Thanks ;)

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 35 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Forum information is there to be read, you have to alter the standard 60 day search parameters at the bottom of the page to find out what you need. There are 54 pages of information on the subject of encryption some of which will provide your answer, the information is generally old hat now and therefore does not display automatically but is there for you to read if you think you need to
