Ok, thanks to you guys here, i now have my SS2 connected up to a nice shiny new triax 1.1:D . Installing the hardware was a piece of cake, it's just the software side of things that's confusing me:confused . What exactly do need to view ALL the channels on 13E?. I'm using ProgDVB. What Plugins, softcams, etc do i need, where do they go and how do i use them?. A PM with detailed instructions or a link that explains what to do would be great. Thanks:)

You dont get all the channels on 13E - so forget that idea for starters. You can cross out all the PowerVu channels (AFN etc) and the Sky Italia Videoguard only channels(movies & sport)

You need to place 2 files in the root directory of the progDVB program
1, S2emu.dll
2, softcam
both of these can be downloaded from www.rdi-sat.com on the Mach 1 page

just get the latestest dated version.

French, Italian, Dutch encrypted channels all open OK

XXL will certainly be decryptable using those files.

I don't know about prog DVB but xxl certainly works with DVB Dream.

I must be doing something wrong then. I get ZIK/XXL during the day but as soon as it comes to XXL, it goes off. Will give DVb Dream a try. What are you using in the way of plugins/softcam Davie?. Cheers :)

I don't know if this will help but ZIK/XXL and XXL show up as 2 different channels, XXL should work. I am using S2emu Version 1.12 make sure you download the complete package which when unziped should be about 13 files and not just the DLL as sometimes when the program is updated you only get a new DLL.

Odd thing this -
I've seen probs with only those sometimes, (Cine polar, FX, RTL9 & XXL) using ProgDVB, and S2dll

But - it opens every single time with an old ver of Y'se (1.30 I think)
If all else fails give that a spin.

Did that first time round but soon realised it was only the update dll i had:D . Still no idea why it wasn't working. I eventually just reinstalled ProgDVB, added in the plugins and latest softcam and all was working . Thanks for all the help anyway;)
