There is a file for the Viacess receiver but not the Mediaguard. I am presuming (but not 100%) that the SW is the same. Look at page 22 and it says this:
USING VIACCESS CARD SLOT C (DSR 5500 CIVP) Insert a valid Viaccess smart card into slot C behind the flap on the front panel. Ensure that the card contacts are facing downwards. Each SMART card contains your subscription details. You can view your entitlement via the COMMON INTERFACE menu by using the MENU button as below. 1. Press MENU button and select COMMON INTERFACE and the menu will appear. 2. Select the slot you are using and press SELECT button. 3. Select the item you desire and press SELECT button again. 4. Press ESC if you wish to exit from this menu.
Thanks for the info..however all is not what it appears to be.
It says exactly what you have stated in the proper manual for the Seca version however when I go into the common interface menu I only get the option as follows:-
SLOT A) No module installed SLOT DVB cam
but no mention of slot C)..I will try again tonight as I think that SLOT is the one I need but would have put any money on it that it should have been SLOT C)
Footnote. After updating some files on my card to a different set I obtained Kiosque channels, but noted that version 1.05 of the files had certain channels reading back to the card every 20 secs or so which interrupted the continuity of the broadcast. I then swapped to version 1.03 & everything is fine. This leads me to deduce that it's actually version 1.03 of the Aston /Seca cam???..This makes sense...right
Perhaps the slot (C) is not mentioned in the "Common Interface" menu simply because it is not a common-interface CAM. It is an embedded CAM. I don't know the receiver, but wonder if there is a separate menu with the embedded CAM? 2old
I guess it is the way you programmed the card not the cam version .... you may watch Stream and all programmes that are watched by aston 1.05 users ....... try using Secanix or the new Piccard .... Though cinestar does not seem to open with Secanix
