Hi Does anyone who what encryption system Sky Digital mainly use for the main channels? For example skysports channel, the movies channels, PPV channels, adults channels. I been told it's Seca/Mediaguard
MPEG2 is not an encryption system. MPEG2 is a compression system applied to a digital signal, a bit like zipping up a file using Winzip. Sky digital uses the videoguard encryption system. The software is not available in a CAM, the encryption software is build onto the motherboard of a receiver, currently only available on a Digibox. The videoguard system is only used in a couple of countries, italy I believe is one.
A) There is no Videoguard Cam Available to purchase to plug into a digital receiver.
There are no codes available for Sky digital and the first person to get the codes off a card will have the Sky legal department on them like a ton of bricks.
Therefore you either legally subscribed to sky or you don't watch sky!
DrKevB - only comment is this: highly amusing how this idea has developed that Sky would be so mercilesss and apparently omnipotent should anyone so much as breathe the words "hack" and "Sky" in the same sentence. Why do you assume Sky are any more powwerful than, say, Canal+ which across Europe has more subscribers and a vastly greater potential market - and yet whose system is merrily pulled to bits by every twelve year old and his dog, very few of whom have actually since been incarcerated in concrete or at her Majesty's pleasure...?
