SkyUK/SkySports with Gemini? Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

Hey guys, I have a fundamental question:


I have a Dreambox DM600PVR and I want to use a SkyUK card with PremiumContent which is SkySports.

My questions are the following:

1. Do I need the latest Gemini in order to install the right Plugin?
2. Do I need the Sky-Box-Number from the original Sky-Box in the UK?
3. Which Plugin would be recommended to be used with SkyUK and the Box-Number? I have thought about CCam, but I've also read about other Plugins which support SkyUK Premium Content?!...


Thanks in advance, Newbie needs help.

Hi RuffRyder,

at 1.)
You don't HAVE to use the the latest, but it should be one of the last few versions.

at 2.)
No, you don't need the Sky-Box Number at all.

at 3.)
CCcam will work - but I prefer NewCS as a Cardreader Plugin and mgcamd as a Softcam Plugin. Together they will work just fine...

Sky UK Premium Content (=Sky Movies & Sky Sports) will work with both plugins, CCcam and NewCS.

Regards
Zodac

Thanks for the answer, I have two new questions as I am really looking forward to try out everything:

1. I have downloaded MGCam 1.30 complete and NewCS 1.31 from the database here. Do I have to download config files for those plugins seperately?
If yes, which ones do I have to use?
2. Only for my understanding: The order to setup my box for Sky-Sports is the following:

a) Installing/Flashing the Image with a new Gemini Image (DreamUp 1.3.3)
b) Restarting/erasing the image via the button on the box
c) copying the plugins MGCam and NewCS via FTP to the /temp directory
(would you recommend DreamboxControlCenter or DreamBoxEdit for this?)
d) install the plugins via the PluePanel

e) restarting the box(?)
f) Sky-Card should work when being used with the box


Thanks for your help in advance

Why did you download NewCS 1.31? There's NewCS 1.50 out there and it's way better than the 1.31 version. In fact, I had major problems with 1.31 because it didn't send any EMMs to the card so it didn't get any updates. So you should definately use NewCS 1.50.

Next question:
Why do you wanna download the Plugins with the computer? With Gemini you can download & install the Plugins directly from the Dreambox with your Remote. Just make sure that your Dreambox has an internet connection.

Then you download:

NewCS 1.50
NewCS Config (newest version)
mgcamd (newest version)
mgcamd Config (newest version)

Make sure that in the mg_cfg (in /var/keys) the setting for AU is "on" and NOT Auto - otherwise your card will run out before it gets updates.

Then you can test everything ... I would suggest to test it with telnet. Log on your box with

telnet [IP] ... for example:
telnet 192.168.2.101

login with root / passwort (normally: dreambox)

and start newcs:
/var/bin/newcs_1.50
(see if the card is initiatlized properly)

then start mgcamd:
/var/bin/mgcamd_1.30 (or which version you have)
(see if it connects properly to newcs, otherwise post your config files here)

if everything works, you can restart both in the BluePanel and everything should work properly.

thanks for the help


my problem is that I dont know whether I have internet connection in the place where I want to install the box. So I thought I could install the plugins via a crossover cable and downloaded tarballs.

But I think Internet Installation via the Blue Panel and a router seems to be the better alternative, isnt it?!

Without a PC it's easier yes... Also because the Downloads in the BluePanel are already sorted so you only see the downloads that are suitable for your box Augenzwinkern

yes, that sorting seems to be a big advantage.

I think I will have to manage to get internet access in the place where I want to install the box.


thanx for your help

OK guys, the Dreambox is now here with me.
I have just successfully flashed the Gemini 4.40 Image. Right now, there are two problems:

1. Gemini has no connection to the internet. When trying to connect via "Download Gemini Server", it says: "Kann Hostname nicht auflösen (URL:...".
The point is that FTP accessability still exists via Windows Explorer and Firefox.

2. Due to the Internet-Connection Problem, I have downloaded NewCS 1.60 and MGCam 1.30 and the latest Configs from the IhaD-Database. After copying them to /temp and installing them via the BluePanel and restarting the cams via the BP everything seems to be done. I have set the AU-Option in the mg_cfg from "Auto" to "Enable".
My question is now, whether I can test NewCS and MgCam without my Sky-Card because I dont have the card right now to test. I only want to know whether NewCS and MgCam are installed properly.


Thanks in advance
