edit your oscam.server and add this in



obviously change server, port, username and password

Also very important in oscam.user make sure the user is in the same group as above

If needs be post your oscam.server oscam.conf and oscam.user files - removing any sensitive information.
Think I'm getting mixed up here I can see osccam folder, but on my Gigablue in Cams it is Mgcamd_1.38r1
the only lines I can see Start CWS
Grateful for reply

Tried that with ccam.list and newcamd.list each on there own and then both files together nothing decoding is it possible only some clines decode depending on server?

Protocol and cams are different things. I would recommend you use oscam with your chosen protocol.

Returned box to seller they flashed image again after couple of days they told me ccams wouldn't clear so installed mgcamd with test lines which worked fine, getting the box back I then tried to change my ccam.cfg for newcamd.list with appropriate line to replace the test but it would not clear, also tried test lines from a another found them hit & miss some would clear some wouldn't. Settled for new supplier then my original supplier sent another trial which worked fine Can not make it out why it is so finicky. Not sure if it is the gigablue box the Openatv or combination of both. I would image it is more the box than the firmware as I had problems getting video on my Samsung TV had to change HDMI setting. Would probably have preferred Vix with ccam as the newcamd seems slow to clear, Hope all this helps someone else that purchases gigablue and thanks to everyone for their input Happy New Year

why not use oscam - I find that very stable and with good debug information if any issues occur
 
TEST
