Oscam Query

I'm planning to have a mess around with this again, now that I've got a (re)working motorised dish, and have found a source for the latest SoftCam.Key files...

If possible, has anyone got a working copy of their config files that I need that they could PM me or upload? I'm currently using Oscam-Stable which works alongside a constant.cw file for BISS feeds, but I'd like to get anything that is still possible to pick up using the latest SoftCam.Key such as PowerVu at 4.8E etc.

Any step by step guide would be handy. Ideally, files that can simply be uploaded via FTB to the box! I'm not even sure if I need to download Oscam-Emu for it all to work - rather than the 'stable' Oscam version that I'm using.

Edit: I've now just downloaded the latest Oscam-Emu, so should be good to go with a fresh install with help from you experts! 😀

Just out of interest what image are you using? Some images within the plugins menu have a softcam keyupdater that will fetch the keys for you.

It's showing as Virtuosso Image Extreme by Team ViX 6.2.011. That does sound like it would be quite handy, although I'm not too bothered about having to manually add/edit the keys when required as it only takes a minute or two.

I only really just need the correct settings for Oscam-stable or Oscam-emu (if that's better to use) to look for the SoftCam.Key to open up BISS feeds or the PowerVu/Tandberg stuff that's listed in there.

I also see that there's a few different versions of the Oscam files. In etc/tuxbox/configuration there's the configuration files such as oscam.server and oscam.conf (which i think its currently looking at), but also others in /oscam-emu and /oscam-stable which I think are not used at the moment. My current oscam.server is using the constant.cw file rather than the SoftCam.Key. Is it also possible to use both, or must it be one or the other to save conflicts?

My current working settings for BISS that are in /etc/tuxbox/configuration are as follows:

oscam.server
[reader]
label = biss
protocol = constcw
device = /usr/keys/constant.cw
caid = 2600
group = 1

oscam.conf
[global]
logfile = /tmp/oscam.log
clienttimeout = 7000
nice = -20
maxlogsize = 10000
preferlocalcards = 1
block_same_ip = 0
block_same_name = 0
emmlogdir = /etc/tuxbox/config/
ecmfmt = c@p/s/d/l:CW:w_c@


[radegast]
port = 9090
allowed = 127.0.0.1,192.168.0.0-192.168.255.255
user = icam

[streamrelay]
stream_ecm_delay = 0
stream_relay_ctab = 098D



[dvbapi]
enabled = 1
au = 1
pmt_mode = 0
delayer = 60
ecminfo_type = 1
user = dvbapiau
read_sdt = 1
write_sdt_prov = 1
boxtype = dreambox

[webif]
httpport = 8085
httpuser = root
httppwd = icam
httprefresh = 20
httpallowed = 192.168.0.0-192.168.255.255
httpemmsclean = 1
http_status_log = 1

I'm quite happy to start everything from scratch - but I'll back these up somewhere in case I break everything! :p

Thanks for any help that you may have!

oscam must support the so-called EMU reader
Code:
[reader]
label                         = EMU
protocol                      = emu
device                        = emulator
disablecrccws_only_for        = 0E00:000000;0500:030B00,041950
caid                          = 0500,0D00,0E00,1010,2600,44A0
detect                        = cd
ident                         = 0500:021110,022A00,030B00,041950;0D00:0000C0,0E00:000000;1010:000000;2600:000000;44A0:000000
group                         = 1
emmcache                      = 2,1,2,1
emu_auproviders               = 0E00:000000;1010:000000,44A0:000000
and have the right SoftCam.Key for it,
constcw protocol is only for static control word, so called CCW

Nice information there i know my knowledge is a little lacking in the specifics or the readers. The op may want to look also under menu, plugins green button to download plugins to see if there is a keyupdater plugin. I know that using the satvenus panel that there are lots of options to download the latest key. Problem when i tried it with the latest vix image it would not install the panel for me.

Is that code all that's needed in oscam-server for it to work? Do I keep everything else the same?

Thanks EnoSat! All the BISS stuff seemed to work great. When experimenting with the other channels, my new dish died (more on that in another thread!). Just for clarification would keys in the constant.cw file still work, or does it only look at what's in softcam.key?
