Hello,

more tales of DB woe.... :(

I can't get newcamd to work. I have a DB500s with Gemini image. I am using var/keys and var/scce from Sp*rt*an DB lite pack k*ys 22-04

I FTPd them up to var/* on my DB and chmod to 755

Looking on the DB OSD in newcamd it always seems to reset to box 5600 rather than the 500 that I set. Other settings are:

Demux API1 2
CA API 3
CAMSYS 17
Word Device ca
GTX output 16

In the keys info each of the following start with the text after the name:

keylist: generated by dreamconv.sh
ppua: Mary's 12-12-2004
rsakeylist: #nagra # digital+
tpscrypt: 07800:01:7e
softcamkeys: 26-04

And I have set the default cam to newcamd/ betad
I have put newcamd.conf in var/tuxbox/config and it is 6k
And I missing a step out? Is it picking up the new keys? Do I need to tell the DB to add each channel individually or should setting it to default do it automatically (descramble)?

I can view the odd encrytpted channel e.g VH1 but on 13.0E I can't watch English Prem League or any multivi*ion channels.. Are there others that I can test with?

Can anyone help? :confused

Sorry for yet more questions!

Mmm, just had a look at 30W and can view Sport TV, one VH1 and Video on Demand channels (and a few others). Does this mean it is working OK and I just need to try it with other emu's? If, space permitting, I installed cam3 and scam, would the DB work out which emu to use to decode a channel?

Equally important, which channel will the Chelsea vs. Liverpool game be on (that I can view!)? :)

First, your keys are now out of date. Spartan has a 26/04/2005 keyset.

Second, you can forget anything in the /keys folder for NewcamD. It doesn't use them. Save the space.

Third, you don't need to chmod key files (only the files that go in /bin)

Fourth, err, I've run out of fingers...

Setup your newcamd.conf file corectly, and you should be OK. Read my how-to in the IG for a step by step guide (esp. for newcamd.conf)

newcamd looks for its keys in the /var/scce directory, not the /var/keys directory. Try copying them over there, or use the key-download options in Gemini (I use Hydra myself, but I suppose Gemini has something similar).

The DB pack has keys and scce so I just copied each to the corresponding var/* on DB
Seems to work fine now. :)

Gemini does have key update but dates of keys available for download are a bit old.

LOL, no sorry m8 - I was just in a bit of a rush to get you your info and didn't want to re-write war and peace... you've obviously got it sorted now, so good news.

You're right about Gemini key download. I wish they would take it out like the DaVinci Tertia - it's no use at all if it's out of date and it would save them taking the heat that they're likely to experience in the future.

They're easy to get directly from the net, and with either FTP or a manual install option it's no hassle.

Apologies again. We don't like to see :(

:D

Thanks for the reply :)

What I meant when I said "have I done something wrong" I was talking about how I'd setup newcamd and installed the keys- not in the sense of having offended you ;)

But I will reread your IG just to double check.

So it's all :) :) again

Now just have to see which channels are worth viewing and which can/ can't be decoded....

You will probally get a feed for this game around 15min before game, Have a look through the forum at that time. I would bet you will get one in english and Chelsea to win 3.0

Can't find an English one (in the sats I've scanned so far). I was gonna watch it on TSR but opted for a channel with no commentary and a better picture :)

I watch many of the non-ITV games on Sat1 on 19.2E FTA. Good picture and hillarious German commentary!

It's a shame the game wasn't as entertaining. Frustrating or what!
