Symptoms-

only works with the FTA channels

Fix -

Easy needs line? cam restart? no internet? reimage? maybe not

Tried -

1)3 reimages VIX / openATV / OpenPLI images currently iPABTV after recommendation on here
2) Tried 2 different lines at 2 different locations lines work on other boxes (Vu+ solo /duo)at both locations
3) mgcamd versions 1.35a / 1.38-various currently r1
4) Network all ok tests fine set to dhcp and i can watch a stream on it
5) I can see the EMC cw0/cw1 info updating every few seconds can also login to a website and check details all seems fine
6) Rebooted device and router
7) Copied over newcamd.list file numerous times into correct location usr/keys

running out of ideas? try it on cable instead? any suggestions?

Well strangely the mg_cfg file supplied by the vendor which worked fine in the Vu+ boxes just doesn't like working in the zgemma's, i remembered a friend had the same issue on his awhile back and i sent a generic mg_cfg file i just downloaded.

Soon as the file was in and cam restarted it worked fine - i still notice that when channels are switched over i have to restart the cam every time to get it to work? im guessing the mg_cfg file still need tweaking? ill do some more research, as that also happens on a vu+ someone else has.
