Hiya :)

A couple of questions...

1) Which channels/streams are you attempting to view?
2) Which emulator are you (wanting to) use?


Deek.

I can't find the English chart, but...

http://www.rdi-sat.com/dreambox/5th.htm

^^ Contains a comparison of some emus and lists where keys for each of them should be placed... I've not tried Microsoft's FTP client with the dreambox yet, only FreeBSD and Linux FTP - but basically, after installing an emu you can upload keys to the respective key directory etc :)

I received errors earlier today trying to install config files and keys via the blue-button menu on Gemini today - but I thought that was because I had been buggering around, what error do you get? :)

Are you using camd3 or newcamd? Have you read the Idiot's Guide?
The keys have to go in var/keys or var/scce depending on the emu you are using.

Keys downloaded by the blue button are normally out of date. And install the aes key plugin script if you haven't already.

Hi,

Get the newest keys from the IHAD database for whichever cam you are using. I am only a newb but I found newcamd to be the easiest to get up and running.

If using newcamd, all you need to do is ftp the new keys to the /var/tuxbox/scce directory/folder on the dreambox. once you have done that you will probably need to change the attributes on all the files you uploaded to 755. Use FlashFXP (its free for 30 days) for ftp'ing it's as good as any.

Reboot dreambox and you are done.

Cheers

David
