I'm experiencing strange difficulties with CAM decoding.
- 4 (2+2) Digital Devices sattelite tuners,
- 4 (2+2) Digital Devices Octopus CIs with 4 CAMs installed.
- 4 tuners disabled,
- 2 rtsp (sat>ip) sources enabled.
1. I choose Channel 1 > no decoding > enabling tuners and disabling rtsp > Channel 1 decoded > disabling tuners and enabling rtsp > Channel 1 decoded, Channel 2 not.
2. I choose Channel 2 > no decoding > enabling tuners and disabling rtsp > Channel 2 decoded > disabling tuners and enabling rtsp > Channel 2 decoded, Channel 1 not.
Earlier (before I reinstalled OS) everything was OK.
I've been using DVBViewer Pro for a long time now (I think since around 2008) without any issues. But as of recently I'm unable to view or record any encrypted channels. I have a CAM module in my SkyStar USB 2 HD CI receiver. DVBViewer sees the CAM and can talk to the card that's in it (it reports the card number among others). This affects both HD and SD channels, and if I record to a file I get a very small (nearly empty) file. Signal strength looks good, EPG is decoded properly. I do not see any decryption errors.
Some important background: My provider (Canal Digitaal, NL) has recently rolled out a firmware update to their receivers which among others blocks the SmartWi that I was using until recently. When this happened, I couldn't receive any channels in my living room anymore (the decoder refuses to work even on non-encrypted channels without a card). So I took the card out of my SmartWi and put it in the receiver. Today I wanted to put it in my PC CAM module again to check if everything is still working (in that case I'm going to order an extra card), but so far it doesn't.
I was still running a very old version of DVBViewer, updated and rescanned all the channels, but that didn't change anything.
support.zip is attached, in case that helps...
DVBViewer PRO V22.214.171.124
CI+ Module: simpliTV
Leider bleiben die verschlüsselte Kanäle schwarz.
Mit TBS Viewer 1.2.0 (CM&V Hackbart) funktioniert es.
Könnt ihr die Lösung aus TBS Viewer in das DVBV Pro implementieren, bitte?
Hi all, I'm trying to use your software for evaluate a purchase.
I'm using a Skystar USB 2 HD CI but "CAM MENU" is grayed and not clickable.
I've got an Irdeto CAM and original (and active) Card inside.
What to do to see CAM and Card infos?

As far as I have tested: the DVBViewer Pro Recording Service 126.96.36.199 beta works properly! With an external USB TV receiver (card) TechniSat CableStar HD CI, MaxCam Twin V1, NDS Card from Kabel BW (Unitymedia), Windows 7 Pro 64, Intel NUC5i5RYH. Additionally, the Rec. Service App (iPad Air OS 8.4) works fine as well. Unscrambling is not a problem anymore, switching channels is fast (less than 3 seconds max).
Moreover, KODI 14.2 with the DVBViewer Addon (PVR-Client) and the new RS runs like a charm. This is real fun! Fast, convenient, and reliable.
