After just getting my Dreambox 500s flashing with Gemini 2.80 and getting Sky UK working using newcamd.

I am having problems with VLC I can see video with no audio by clicking on WEB-X-TV from the Gemini web interface but if I click vpid from firefox or IE nothing happens but it does open VLC so the file associations are ok.

What I really want is to be able to watch TV on my PC using the VLC client any ideas?

i'm using windows XP.

Thanks

Now got it working with VLC client from the web interface using FireFox only! and only worked after the cam was configured even for FTA channels (BBC).

However I still have no audio on some sky channels like sky movies any ideas?

Thanks

this may sound daft, but it works for me :)

instead of opening the file when clicking on the VPID, choose SAVE and then after its saved goto the file and double click it.

like i say, works for me...wierd

Thanks for the reply,

but it is not that, VLC is opening and it's only some sky channels that have no audio. Any ideas I'd love to be able to fix this one.

Ps its not the audio channels as I have tried each one in turn.
