load up Gemini 3.40maxVAR and bung on CCcam 1.70 or newcamd 6.10.

Advantage with CCcam is you don't have to edit betad.cfg and put your boxID into the file.

Have you read The Guide?

Is your dish motorised?

or PLi Garnet, I know CCcam is in the downloads menu of PLi, just install & insert the card with the chip facing downwards. No configuration file needed, and no cardserver as CCcam comes with his own cardserver.
This will work on all your NON-PREMIUM Sky UK channels.
If you have subscribed to any premium channels (sports - movies) then you'll have to use newcamd 6.1 and insert the correct boxkey into the betad configuration file, as Leee suggested.

Great!! it really worked with PLi Garnet and now I get all FTV channels on my dreambox. Thanks guys.

As my digibox was blown up last week, the subscription of sky sports 1 & 2 and non-premium UK channels were cancelled. I am a big fan of cricket worldcup as it is now at very crunch stage; could I get sports channels using any emus or keys?

no. Certainly not from Sky anyway.

@JTA - I thought CCcam read the BoxID from the card and thus could open premium channels. Certainly someone else lead me to believe this.

I know someone who live in Germany gets all sky premium channels with dreambox 500s. He keeps the connection of dreambox with modem 24h/day, he also gets almost all channels at hotbird for free. He is not expert to guide me but according to him he bought the dreambox from only 150 euros and he has been watching all subscription channels on astra 1, 2 and hotbird for free from March 2005.

Any idea how does it work?

For his Sky, he's using the emulator "newcamd" with a modified betad.cfg. He has no modem on his DM-500S, trust me.

For the other channels, he's found things like Sin's........ I'll let you go a-searching on the dark side for those things ;)

@Leee : I'm not sure if CCcam can read & use the boxkey for premium channels but I wouldn't be surprised if it could. Can't test it since I don't have any premium channels myself, I stick to the family pack.

@vlb : there are rumours that Sky Italia is somewhat cracked, and that's why Sky's preparing a card swap. I've read some rumours that NDS can be shared using the gbox emulator, but that's all very grey (and very illegal) and not at all obvious to set up to. Sin and Satan are quite useful too (will open Digital+, TPS and Premiere with CCcam).

Since you've got Pli now - have a search for the latest Mary PPanel, and install manually (it's not in the downloads list). This contains a link to the Satan key-bundle. And that's all I'm allowed to (_URL="http://www.hutsefrutse.com/upload/") say.......

Check The Usual Places thread for useful websites.

Have you heard of Google? Try a search on your words and see what you find.. ;)

Thanks guys.

PLi Garnet has CCcam v1.3.0, could you please guide me how to update it? Are there any CCcam keys in PLi Garnet?

come on, vlb, I think we've been more than cooperative - mhku has even displayed my link in the clear, and the item you're looking for is in the top 5 !
Download, unzip, copy to /tmp and install manually (from the software installation menu). Go to the PPanels menu, select Mary, select Satan and watch the bytes fly by.
BTW - CCcam's last version is 1.7.0, looks like you have an old version. Download the new one from the software downloads menu. Version 1.7.0 is auto-update for TPS (switch to France4 on hotbird to get the keys).
Some reading won't hurt either ...... and we're taking the fun out of the dreambox : making it work yourself :-) It's all out there, search and you will find.

ah, it's internet-connected. This changes what might be happening - but topics like that have already been hinted in the thread.

LOL@JTA, surely your wrist must be sore? ;)

I followed JTA's instructions -

Managed to load Mary's but could not Satan's keys.

Moved dish to Hotbird - got France4 immediately. Also getting Multivisions, BBC Prime, French movie channels, cartoon network, VH1, MTV and many more....but nothing from skyitalia???

Still have not uploaded the CCcam 1.7 but will do along with others emus this weekend.

Thanks all again for your help.
