Hi peeps

As the DM800 doesn't have a CI slot, is it possible to connect an external CI drive or module so I can plug a CAM into it ?

Sorry if my question sounds silly but I was just wondering if it was possible ? :-ohmy)

Many Thanks

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Thanks for your reply.

I want to be able to insert a CAM but aren't these products that you mention above just card readers ?

In that case the DM800 is probably not what you want as I do not think there is anything available that will suit your requirements. What kind of cam do you want to insert, most encryptions run on EMU's anyhow so none needed

I already have a DM800. I have a Tring card but I am failing to get the monthly updates using Newcs and CCcam and the combination of Newcs and Magcamd.

Have you tried CCcam 2.1.3? No need for newcs on hte UK card and it updates.

Hi there

I've installed CCcam 2.1.3 but my CCcam info doesn't recognise the Tring card. Also it isn't showing as a local in CCcam info.

Have I done something wrong ?

Thanks
