hi all,
I am a newbie to this and have stumbled along in the mission of getting sat tv on my pc,
History: my system is a medion titanium md 8386, i have a standard sky dish and lnb, and purchased a second hand skystar 2 pc rev 2.3 from ebay which had no software with it :-doh!
present: I have got it working i think and am using progdvb where i am getting some free to air channels
now i hear about soft keys and encription type stuff
do i need an actual card and card interface or not and if not could some kind person explain slowly where and how to put them in
also since i been downloading plugins every time i start progdvb an error appears stating unable to open com port

please please can someone help as i feel so close to succeeding in this mission
many thanks bronking

If you are trying to decrypt Sky channels, then I'm afraid you will be unsuccessful, not even sure if there is a plugin to read a genuine Sky subscription card.

If you are pointing at another sat, then we need to know which one. :)

Hi Bonking,
All you need to do is to go to the satkey org and go to the PCI dvb card section. Download and unzip. latest softcam keys are 5/11/05 and for ProgDVB you need to get the softcam.key and put it into your ROOT directory, and off you go

Sorry about my foolness, but what does that program actually do?
? what program ? :eek: if you mean PoorMansCam,if so you need a card reader hooked to a com port and a smart card for it,but as above,you probably cant use it for what you are needing.
