Im new & need help please

hiya guys, just joined the forum and very very new to the satellite stuff. i've bought myself a VisionDTV -Sat-CI VP1030A and a viaccess (red) cam card. ive got my satellite pointing at hotbird and astra 1 (twin lnb) and followed the guide for installing progdvb thats on the forum, but i could only access the free to air channels and the scrambled ones are still in red and not viewable. am i doing something wrong or missing something?

secondly what can i do with my viaccess cam?

can i use my vision dtv sat-ci vp1030a card to write to my cam using some kind of software or do i have to purchase an external usb kind of writer?

thanks you in advance
