cccam

Added by Torleif Pedersen over 5 years ago

Hi
I understand that tvheadend has a built in softcam client.
I need to connect to my dreambox witch runs a cccam server, can I use the inbuilt client in tvheadend or does this only work with oscam?

Thanks :)

Tvheadend cwc client only works with cardservers that support the newcamd protocol. The creators of cccam decided to only implement the newcamd protocol when cccam acts as the client
So tat is why you can not connect to a cccam server with tvheadend. There are also no plans to include the closed source cccam protocol into tvheadend.

So this leaves you with the following options :
1) switch your dreambox to oscam and the connect directly to that from tvheaded
2) use oscam as a proxy to convert newcamd to cccam protocol

I hope this explains the situtation

Hi
Thanks for the help!

Is it possible to run cccam on my ubuntu installation (same machine running tvheadend) and use the capmt protocol to connect to cccam?

RE: cccam - Added by Hein Rigolo over 5 years ago

I do not recommend using the capmt option. That code is no longer maintained and will be removed in a next version.
I would swotch away from cccam in favour of an true open source solution around oscam.

how do I connect zgemma h2 with tvheadend?

For anyone still interested, I've created a cccam CA client for tvh (PR already sent).

For testing pull this branch:
https://github.com/ljalves/tvheadend/tree/cccam

Missing features (in progress):
- extended mode (multiple ecm requests at once)
only a problem if streaming a huge number of channels simultaneously.
also depends if cccam server supports it
- emm handling
