i dont have a video (its just packed in) and i want to be able to record sly, i know you can get a sly card working in a DB, just dont know how.

i was just wondering that if instead of using gbox, is there now a easier way??

sorry if the question wasnt very clear... the question has more to do with getting sly on my DB instead of my digibox....

Try this :-

(1) With the Gemini blue panel, download and install Newcamd 6.03 complete.

(2) Download and install Newcamd 6.02 Confg.

(3) By ftp go to var/tuxbox/conf/newcamd/cardserver. Right click and select edit and insert your sky boxid at the bottom section which should be as follows. :-

SERIAL_PORT = 1
TCP_PORT = 10001
BOXID = **********
EMM-G = yes
EMM-S = yes
EMM-U = yes
SPECIAL_FEATURES = no
DISABLE_PIN = yes

(4) Insert card with chip downside, reboot and start newcamd 6.03.

Regards, pcd.

i did as you said and at the bottom of the cardserver file is this...

DESKEY = 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14
SERVER_NAME = cardserv
DEBUG_PORT = 14000
ENTITLEMENT_PORT = 14001
ADMIN_PORT = 14002
ADMIN_PASSWORD = secret 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
USER = local local lan 127.0.0.1 12000
USER = spider spider lan 127.0.0.1 15003
DEBUG_INIT = no
DEBUG_NET = no
DEBUG_ECM = no
DEBUG_EMM = no
#SERIAL_PORT = 0
#TCP_PORT = 10000

so i added

SERIAL_PORT = 1
TCP_PORT = 10001
BOXID = **********
EMM-G = yes
EMM-S = yes
EMM-U = yes
SPECIAL_FEATURES = no
DISABLE_PIN = yes

and it didnt work??

i also browsed into the hard drive version of the files too, seeing as im loading my image from there, still no joy :(

Start each daemon from the terminal window and look for clues there. The output is quite descriptive.
Do not forget to kill them before.
Alternatively you can change the startup script to enable logging. But this is more work so I prefer the first one.

are you sure the sky card is working with cardserver in newcamd 6.03 ? I thought sky cards could only be used thru betad (which also comes with newcamd). You would need to edit the config files of betad and newcamd to make it work.

if you just want to view the sky card on the box, yes, the betad method is far simpler.

Another thing with the Newcamds now that nds is included I never have to edit the file as it works with a FTV card. If I put in the Premium package card I have to in put my box id no. So if you have a ftv card Red Devil try it 1st to see if it clears ITV 1.2. If it does edit the box id and reboot and insert your priemium card.

OK, got the card working with $ky 1, but for some reason, other channels like discovery and the normal channels like bbc and itv wont clear???

wierd, the other thing is, half the channels are missing. were is bravo, living TV etc etc
surely there is more than just 1 channel to watch?

by the way, i have the Family pack £19.50 a month subscription

I also have the family pack, all the channels allowed by the card working with newcamd-betad. After a while in the dreambox, you may lose some channels, then the card needs to be left in the sky digibox for some time to get updated. BTW the bbc channels should clear without the card as these are fta. Regards.

Guys, use Newcs. Fixes all those annoying glitches with Newcamd like freezing and pixelation.

Dragon cam also works well in DB.
Viewing and saving to/playing from hdd has no problems.
My only beef is that the normal EPG that comes up on web page (and on screen) only shows up to the next programme.
There prob is an EPG add-on but I'll bet it isnt straightforward.

I've just "re-discovered" the S*y problem since using Newcamd5.28 some time ago. I think I actually helped a few people back then.
But bu**er me if I can get things up and running again now.

I've tried betad, newCs in both hydra and gemeni images and I get hee haw working.

Can u guys help me now? I must be doing som'at wrong.

1) In betad I downloaded newcamd6.04+betad and edited the betad.cfg file with ultraedit to inser my boxid. Is that all I should need to do?

2) With mgcam+newCs and gemeni 2.4 image, I'm not entirely sure what to do, suffice to say nought has worked.

Any suggestions?:-bash

Hi chucles,

I did this some time ago. Downloaded and installed newcamd 6.03 full followed by newcamd 6.02 config. Edited the cardserv file and rebooted. Worked ok with the skyuk card.

Regards, pcd.

ps. Sorry, I already suggested this earlier in the thread. Did not read back !

Dont worry m8 I finally succeeded with both betad and newCS. I think my wireless connection is somehow corrupting files 'cos it started working on about the 4th attempt with a newly installed gemeni and emus. basically I did nothin special.

Thanks for the reply.
