    foxtel are the aussy version of our sky, they use the same encryption and they are implementing changes that has knocked out card sharing and the use of genuine cards in 3rd party box's.

    A little reading, C&P from elsewhere and not my work.

    NDS, manufacturer of encryption systems for DVB services are thwarting Dream Multimedia, manufacturer of Linux set-top-boxes

    End of last year NDS have requested Dream Multimedia to close up their open-source operating software and remove the Ethernet network connection from all their products.

    Now NDS in their role as president of ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute)have taken an even more drastic step. ETSI are refusing to grant a CSA (Common Scrambling Algorythm) license to Dream Multimedia. NDS have an unhealthy large say in ETSI and consequently have the power to stop a license being granted without any valid reason whatsoever.

    Unfortunately, a manufacturer needs an ETSI license to be allowed to inplement CSA encryption. This implementation is a requirement for a set-top-box to comply with and work according to the DVB standard. Without ETSI license a manufacturer cannot legally use and implement CSA.

    IBM, manufacturer of the CPU(central processing unit) in the set-top-boxes DM7000, DM5620, DM500 and DM7020 have been put under great pressure by NDS not to sell CPUs to Dream Multimedia anymore. This has been done by using the argument of Dream Multimedia not having a valid license.
    The same pressure has been put on the (new) manufacturer of CPUs' that Dream Multimedia intends to use in their new models DM7025 and DM8000.

    Ofcourse this is an outrageous development and a heavy blow to the open source community. NDS apparently have the power to make an organisation like ETSI refuse a license to any manufacturer without any valid reason.

    ETSI, which is a non-profit organisation which' major goal is standardisation should not refuse a license to Dream Multimedia, since the company complies with all conditions required to obtain a license.

    dream have little to be worried about. however anyone using cccam server should make an effort to switch to oscam as cccam is simply on its last legs. any change in encryption in times to come will definitely see the end of cccam. oscam is by far the best supported cam available. its not easy. took me a week to figure the parameters and certain boxes behave differently and as such need individual parameter settings. this was never the case with cccam which was just a basic cam that worked. so do some homework. best site i found was www.dreamboxuk.com for guides.

    and e45 you are not correct on this subject. cccam currently does not clear picktv. good reason. cccam is not a well supported cam. oscam does the job for a very practical reason, it is worked on by developers and picktv encryption seems to be a trial case of where nds is going. oscam is the only cam that currently clears this channel. its a matter of keeping ahead and that is where oscam is. it also supports cccam emulation perfectly

    yes.just change your cccam line to newcamd line done.but your line provider must give you a nline address not a cline address.

    heard that the newcamd/cccam mixture did what you say sb but still think oscam will be the cam of the future for however long that future may be !!!!
