I'm running Gemini 2.10 with Newcamd 6.1 inc cardspider.
I have all the usual stuff opening just fine and on reading the tutorial in the idiots guide thought that I should get SKY working with Newcamd but it doesn't want to work.

I ftp'd into the Dreambox and copied the correct dreambox version of cardserver and chmod 755
I then edited the cardserve.cfg file to input the settings from the tutorial putting my pace boxes serial number in the correct place as seen in the boxes system menu.
I used ultraedit just to be sure the file would be readable
I then reset the dreambox and can't decode anything on SKY

Can anyone offer any further help or pm me your working files so I just need to change the box key.

I don't know where I have gone wrong

Hi Longstockings
I've just got sky working on my 5620-s with gemini 2.10. Heres what I did
1. Using blue button downloaded newcamd 6.1/betad, newcamd keys and newcamd 6.0/betad config
2. FTP'd to dbox and copied /var/tuxbox/config/betad.cfg to my pc.
3. Opened betad.cfg with a script editor (ultraedit should be fine)
4. put my box serial number in the BOXID = line.
5. FTP'd betad.cfg back to dreambox (/var/tuxbox/config) and chmod back to 755.
6. Insert card (chip side down) and reboot.

I like you buggered around for ages with cardserv.cfg before trying betad.cfg, it worked first time.

Good luck!

I thought I'd have to do it a different way. I'll try that as soon as the Mrs stops watching Big Brother

Worked a treat.

A few minutes and I was watching Sky on the Dreambox.
Mrs is moaning because she can't watch the E4 interactive feed but apart from that all is well. Is there a way of picking up the feed from the Big Brother house another way ?

Guys, pardon me for dipping my toe in on this, but I'm trying to do the same thing on a 7020. i've edited the betad.cfg file with the pace s/n but not sure what else to try. the card works fine on the pace box. maybe i'm too narrow in my focus????

Plenty of info on this in the idiots guide and threads, If after you have gone through these and still cannot get it to work, lets know and we will try to sort you out.

Afternoon everyone,
Let me introduce myself, I am a "newbie" to the dreambox scene, after looking into the wonderful world of Dreamboxes for the last few months I finally got myself a Dreambox 7000 and a Dreambox 500 from the beloved eBay!!

I am currently running Gemini 2.80 with Newcamd 6.09 Complete & MGCamd 1.00 Pre10 Complete + configs all downloaded from the blue panel

With the downloaded configs, NewCamd started and my Sly UK card inserted in the top slot of my box all works well!!

BUT

Here my troubles begin, a bank holiday weekend has been spent and a relationship put on the rocks!!

I try to run NewCS 1.14 for Windows with my Phoenix programmer set at 3.58Mhz, my Sly card inserted and the XML and config files on the PC and Dreambox configured as per the standard cardsharing HowTo...

I start MGCamd on the dreambox, NewCS states that a MGCamd user has logged in and there seems to be information flowing between the box and PC BUT the channels dont clear.

As soon as I revert back to the standard config files and put the card back into the top slot of the box again the channels clear!

Any ideas where I am going wrong?

Am I fighting a losing battle with WinCS and MGCamd?

Any help would be much appreciated!!

Kind regards,

A man on the verge!!:-doh!

Problem Solved!!

I removed the cardserver name and lan from the end of the CWS line in newcamd.conf

Works a treat!!

The world seems a much better place now!!
