I do have a Viaccess cam and card which works fine for the 7 Multi channels, but not for the MMOV channels. The shop i purchased my card from did say it would work for the MMOV but despite them changing the card on a number of occassions it still will not work
I wondered if it could be that you needed am Irdeto cam for the MMOV channels but obviously not.
Perhaps when i get my programmer and work out how to use it, i will be able to do my own card to view the MMOV channels. Is the Viaccess file on Phills site a good one to try and program my card with? It is a STRSH one?
Not sure about that Shahid, i dont think thay are test channels. I am sure i have seen films in the title box that does work on my receiver. Unfortunately all i get is the title of the film displayed but no picture.
I haven't watched them for months, but previously these were part of the Greek Nova/Hellas package - presumably still are. They are Movie channels. But Nova has switched to the Irdeto2 system and there is no hack for that yet in the public domain.
Thanks for your reply 2old, it's a shame they have switched to Irdeto2 system and that there is no hack I never actually got to watch any of the channels but from what i see of the titles they feature really up to date movies. Oh well, i'll just have to continue with Palco, Tequilla and Kiosque movie channels. Do you know of any other movie channels similar to these that i might be able to pick up on Astra/Hotbird with either an Aston 1.03 or Viaccess cam?
The French Multivision channels (provider TPS on Hotbird).
If you have Irdeto, you may like to know that PremiereWorld also does a series of NVOD channels.
And if you had access to the Sirius sat you would have the Viaccess "Ticket" series of channels too. The Viaccess Cinema1/2/3 and TV1000 1/2/3 channels there also show good movies.
Thanks again 2old. I already get the Multivision channels (TPS) but dont really rate them because they always seem to be in a foreign language.
Unfortunately i don't have an Irdeto cam, just a Aston and Viaccess cam. Do you think it would be worth getting a Irdeto cam for the Premierworld channels? Are these channels on hotbird? Do they show up to date movies etc?
I have 2 fixed dishes setup, one pointing at Astra nd the other at Hotbird. So unfortunately i don't have access to Sirius and miss out on TV1000 etc.
Talking of channels do you know if it is possible to view Premiere Sport on Astra? I like to watch alot of golf and from the titles it looks like this channel broadcasts alot of golf coverage. Or do you know of any other good sports channels other than the Canal + ones etc?
The Premiere World Sports stuff is indeed watchable with a hobby card and Irdeto CAM - assuming it is an "allCAM" (ie capable of receiving the Irdeto variant "Betacrypt" that PW uses).
I wouldn't bother buying such a CAM for the NVOD stuf if you are only interested in English-languavge channels - the Germans dub everything. There were two NVOD channels which broadcast the original soundtracks but I believe they too now only broadcast the lipsynched version.
Note: if nature films are your bag, several of the the TPS Multivision channels switch to that late night.
The French packages do show films in whats called VO or Version Originale. At least once a month the film will have the normal soundtrack and have subtitling. Unlike German which is always dubbed (except 3Sat when it shows Monty Python or Fawlty Towers)
Those MMOV channels are part of The Stream package, I use an irdeto freecam with strsh irdeto file and DS9 file to receive the channels last night, however all the films films are dubbed into Italian, but they do show late night nature films as well.
I think the expression "don't hold your breath" springs to mind s*t*a*r*m*a*n, I would also not be surprised if in the event of such a thing happening, they already have a contingecy plan for sending out new cards with an updated encryption. VideoGuard II, has a certain ring to it
