mgcamd works also fine for me for updating the blue card in NewCS.

Curious me wanted to know why entitlement updates from mgcamd are ok, but from CCcam are not, so I had a closer look at newcs's logs. When mcgamd forwards an EMM to newcs, it adds a 7 byte header, which newcs will strip and send the remainder to the card. With CCcam, it's a different story: only 4 bytes header (card address is missing), and the EMM to the card gets totally garbled and has a wrong length. These EMMs get usually rejected, because EMMs are signature protected. Even worse: EMM processing by the card takes eccessively long (sometimes more than one second, compared to about 100 millesecs on correct EMMs) and in one instance, a malformed EMM caused the card to lock up: I had to remove and reinsert the card and restart newcs - reader reset wouln't do the trick. I guess this could have also easily fried the card if I had been less lucky. Also a good thing I tested this on a FTV card rather than my regular subscription card.

So I would advise if you are running CCcam as a client to newcs to make sure to have EMM forwarding to newcs disabled.

However I have 2 doubt on my configuration.
I would like to be Ok for the card month update and for the safe of the card - No burn.. )(-red.
My newcs.xml configuration is
<readers name="Dreambox SCI">
<globals>
<listening-ip>127.0.0.1</listening-ip>
</globals>
<device>

<name>SCI Lower Slot</name>
<type>sci</type>
<mhz>358</mhz> Is better 357 or 358 ?
<node>/dev/sci0</node>
<parity>none</parity>
<reset>normal</reset>
<export>yes</export>
<enabled>yes</enabled>
<blocksa>no</blocksa> Is correct ?
<blockua>no</blockua> Is correct ?
<blockga>yes</blockga> Is correct ?
<blockC0>yes</blockC0>
<!--<boxkey>0000000000</boxkey>


Thanks for your help.
Do you have other suggestions for me ?

Do you suggest me NewCS CCcam Config Creator v0.6.1.rar or V0.5.4 ?
Just a question.. If I keep my configuration, do you think that it will work well ?
Very very interesting your Blog... Thanks again.

digit, use the latest configurator from B16MCC (which is 070 if I recall). The frequency doee not matter if using an external omnikey reader as it follows the ISO standard (reader adjusts frequency according to card specs) OR it will be automatically set for you on internal readers when using the great tool from B16MCC

Not all internal dmm readers are/act the same. There are many posts describing how some heat cards more than others, etc... but considering all that, 358 should be fine; that is how I tested my dm800. The only way, in my opinion, is to get yourself an omnikey reader €7 (£5) and never worry again

But is omnikey reader as fast as internal or its same like smargo? My card was freezing with smargo, than had to put in dm800 and its ecm time is 0.14, dm500 reads at same ecm time as dm800.

I am still waiting for my entitlement update! yesterday I received 5000+ emm but the entitlement is still same. 3 more days to go!!! will wait tonight in dm800 if not have to stick in smybox tomorrow!

Just checked the entitlement and the date is now showing Jan 2010!

The below hasn't changed:

| 2590 | 2009-11-14 | 00:00:00 |
| B920 | 2009-11-14 | 00:00:00 |
| B921 | 2009-11-14 | 00:00:00 |
| B928 | 2009-11-14 | 00:00:00 |

Does anyone know what channels are these?

Thanks

The omnikey reader is outstanding and it costs 1/10th of a Smargo. I don't want to sound like an ad but for the price, it's unbeatable! I would go as far as stating that it's FASTER than the internal and most of all, the card remains COLD. Well built, leds, the works...

Can't agree more. The omnikey is a great reader. Mine runs in a dedicated linux pc and so most likely helps for excellent performance, my ecm times range from 0.099 to 0.115 and the card is stone cold. Updates are working via MGCamd and all is well. NewCS uptime is currently a personal best at 37 days.

Following on from my previous post regarding the white uk card and the Smargo card reader... (for those wishing to make use of their existing Smargo)

I can confirm that entitlements are successfully updated when using the Smargo and the following setup:

* DM800 running Gemini 4.50 (have updated since last post)
* Mgcamd 1.31 with NewCS 1.67 (entitlements updated with Mgcamd)

* Matching boxkey

Cheers

My configs have evolved over time so knowing the exact changes is difficult. I have compared my newcs.xml file with the stock one from the Gemini Blue Panel, below are the notable differences.

type: smartreader+
mhz: 357
node: /dev/usb/tts/0
enabled: Yes
boxkey: convert box id from decimal to hexadecimal, add leading zeros if not 8 characters

Rest of the config is as per usual.

Also ensure your Smargo is in dreambox mode.

Code:
root@dm800:/tmp# ./srp_tools_mipsel

smartreader+ version v1.3

MODE    autoswitch
FREQ    3.69 Mhz
KERNEL  dreambox
T_MODE  t = 0
EGT     0

I've found it helpful to run NewCS from the console as follows.
Code:
newcs_1.67 -nd
This lets you see if the card init was successful. If you see it failing, kill NewCS, remove the Smargo from the Dreambox, plug it back in and try NewCS again.

I'd advise on getting NewCS working and showing the card entitlements before moving onto configuring CCcam / Mgcamd.

Hope this helps.

What model of Omnikey to buy? Is 3121 good or 1021 for Linux PC server?

Thanks
