You can install them manually using your ftp program.Its the only way it worked for me.

If you go to the site below and download (Scam 2.3.tar.gz) and (Mary.tar.gz) you should have 2 winrar type files.
Then ftp the first file (Dont unpack it) to /tmp folder on your dreambox.Then press your green button on the remote and go on addon manager.Then press the yellow button for 'manual' and the file should be there (Scam 2.3.tar.gz) then just install it with the green button.
Then do the same for the marys file.

This way worked fine for me


I got the files from here - _http://db2center.net/index.php (listed under file centre)

Hi richard,

Which Dreambox are you using?
Is Zeus in DB flash or multiboot on USB or HDD?
When I installed Zeus for the first time on my DM7000S (when it was recently released) the control panel was v1.9 and each time I update it's always v1.9. It's just the items available in the lists which change!
CP v1.3 sounds very old from a Hydra image much earlier than Zeus!

You could try downloading another copy of Zeus from a different source and installing that. See if there's any difference?

73 & good luck.

Just trying this on 5620 and it dont seem to work. Not coming up in add on manager unless you put them in var/add on. It comes up in the add on manager but not in the folder to install. Will mess around for a while with it. Might chmod them to 755 or unpack them. Have it written down somewhere , cant seem to find it now.

Doing my head in. No problem with the keys. Installed them manually. But scam 2.3 wont work. Done everything I could. Think its time to flash with the new Zeus image for 5620. Might come up on the control panel. Now to switch computers with a serial outlet. Let you know how i get on after tea.

Hi,

I've got the Zeus image with a 5620 and found it difficult/confusing to get the latest scam using Control Panel - I could only see Scam 25.11 in the list of Addons. I installed this oldversion however and compared the files on the 5620 with the zipped up Scam 2.2 and it seems that the only thing different was the scam file in /var/bin

Using ftp from the Dreambox Control centre software I transferred in the new version of scam into /var/bin, overwriting the old one, downloaded keys as normal using the green button and it all works - everything that should open up is there. I haven't tried it with scam2.3 as it all seems to work.

Hi John,

Thanks for the info - just done the same and it was a lot easier. Found it difficult to flash-erase zeus though - had to do a factory reset from one of the setup menus. Couldn't get the 999 on the LCD display when three front panel buttons were pressed.

With NewCam 5.26 and Scam 2.3 loaded + Mary's keys /var is about 92% and it wasn't too happy about re-loading the keys. Deleted cardserver from /var/bin to get it down to 85% or so.

No you dont flash erase using flash wizzard pro. Did you use that programme????????????
Your image when loaded without cams, should read 51%. Look in add on manager when its loaded, then 15% for each of the next 2 downloads, scam and marys= 81% aprox. I found only 1 cam to use you can delete from the remote and load another, you need to leave room for new control panel or it wont download for the next latest. Try another flash again and dont hold any buttons, just let it load normally and then load your settings.

question?

if you are using your HDD for your Var files.... can you then delete everything from the flash version of var, if so would this make the machine more stable?

Dont really know but I was told it was the cams that make the image unstable. Must say zeus was very stable up until I put in scam. Crashed twice the last few days.

umm so this begs the question. if you dont use Radegast and any other softcams, including any other stuff, it would be better to delete them?

i have noticed when your Dreambox flash is full, the DB freezes a hell of alot more? must need room for caching or something.

so surely a basic system with say 2 softcams and marys keys would be better?

its just a case of finding out what we can delete then without causing problems

Your flash shouldnt be nearly full. Store on your hd. You can delete on the control panel in add on manager.

I used the root.cramfs method - I'll try flash wizzard pro next time. Now that NewCam can open everything up, I've removed scam2.3 and got /var down to 66%.

Yes, you are dead right. I keep NewcamD and SCAM loaded (plus Mary's) as it's fun to use the two different file structures and setups, plus 'new releases' can come for either one well ahead of the other.

its a case of not keeping all your eggs in one basket.

your can guarantee whichever one you delete will be the quickest with the next update, its sods law

Good man bob, nice to see your sorted. I remember when i flashed the 1st time was holding the buttons down for 15/20 min. Use Flash wizzard pro next time. No buttons to hold. It backs up your settings and image as well. Download it someday and mess around with it. I know it fairly in & out now. Would`nt be on a desert island without it. lol....
