Hi Piopat, Some great instructions out there well done.

I ended up getting a preconfigured DM500 so there was no need to flash or anything.
But I have read all of your tutorials inside out just in case.

I would like to know one thing that i'm finding hard to understand.

Do we have to pay for a C or N line from a pay server?

Can you turn your own DM into a server and just use it for yourself with a dydns account?

How does this part all work?

I'm just wondering because purchasing a line from someone else can be costly throughout the year.

Thanks.

ronaldo, either you pay for a C/N line or you pay s#k, which is going to be more expensive??
the box must be linked to a payed for card one way or the other.

When I clicked on "Automatic Transponder Scan" the screen just turns black and the power turns off, there is no lights on the DM500s

Turns out its the power cable. I read that the power cables on the clones is very poor

Took me a while to discover that, so good information for someone who has that issue

The DM500s turns off or turned off randomly at times and would not turn back on

First of all this has been great and a top tutorial from piopat it's been working for over a year now but one problem I have come across is that the card gets disconnected I have to ring up and get it reconnected again from **y and make some excuse up is there any way around this or something I'm doing wrong that the card gets disconnected its happened 5 times now.

Any help greatly appreciated.

naz are you using cccam ? cccam 2.1.3 should update your card for you with no problems ,but what you could do is pop the card back in the skybox once or twice a month and that would do the job aswell .

#1459
the problem is not that your card gets disconnected. the problem is that your entitlements on your card are not getting updated. the reason for this is that you must set one (and only one of your users, normally a frequent user) with the authority to update card entitlements. Its an issue that still confuses me in that the server for some reason cannot update his own card entitlements but such is how it works. So if you look at your flines in cccam you will see for example syntax

f: user pass 2 0 0 {0 0 2}

change the syntax of a regular user to

f: user pass 2 0 1 {0 0 2}
instead and now this user will be allowed to update your entitlement info

Hi pat bit weird this I'm using a dm800 clone with Gemini image that had ccam on it on screen it says ccam2.1.4 but when I look at ccam.cfg file at the top it says 2.1.3 bit confused to which It is.

I will try that thanks mate I suppose that user must have ccam2.1.3 on the box.
#1462
fint,
are you sure it's the fline and not the box? i generally use use a fline like
<user><pass>2 1 1 {0:0:1} (i'm not sure what it all means). i origionaly set up on a dm500 and then moved to vu+duo but with both boxes in never had to put card back in sky box and i have added channels over the phone with both dm500 and vu
#1463
does the cline need to have 'yes' at the end to update emm of server card(s)?
#1464
C: server.noip.com 12000 username password yes
A Cline that will limit to receive all shares that are only up to 2 hops away

<user><pass>2 1 1 {0:0:1}
bit by bit
the 2 means that you give your clients your local card and all other cards that are on your system. Normally this should be 0 so the user only gets your local card
1 means that you allow the client to reuse your key emulator, as such they can use reuse your key emulator on their system and this should definitely be set to 0
the 1 means that the client can update entitlements. you should have only one client who has this value otherwise your card gets flooded with entitlement updates. this is ok and will work with all clients set to 1. The issue is if the card has logic that says i'm getting too many entitlement updates and shuts down on that basis

the other values 0 0 1 are fine in that you do not allow the client to reshare. i suggest you do some modifications to your cccam.cfg :-)

This great info mate I've only the one card on the share.

My Fline is ATM
F:user pass 2 0 0 {0:0:1}

And Cline
C:whatever.com 12000 user pass no

So should I change this only for one user to and leave everyone else as above.
F:user pass 2 0 1 {0:0:2}
C:whatever.com 12000 user pass yes

the exact opposite. you should have all your clines looking like
C:whatever.com 12000 user pass no
you should have your flines looking like
F:user pass 0 0 0 {0:0:1}
except for the fline that will update you card which will look like
F:user pass 0 0 1 {0:0:1}
naz did you ever read the standard cccam.cfg file? its all there in the description

Quick question folks, what's the difference between CCcam and mgcam? I've noticed that there is a difference in price between a yearly sub for the two and as my exisitng CCcam will be out soon was wondering if the mgcam would work (after installing the necessary files).
#1475
they are both cams that in essence do the same thing ,there shouldnt be any difference in price .if your current cccam line works well why change it ,you could change servers and end up with a poorer quality line .cccam works with c lines /n lines and mgcamd cws= lines .
