    CI: Aston + canaldigitaal smartcard

    Hi all,

    Yesterday I got my Technotrend 3200 DVB-S card working, along with the Aston CI CAM module and a smartcard from Canal Digitaal.
    I can watch the usual Dutch channels now: Ned1/2/3, RTL4, 5, 6 and 7, Net5, SBS6 and Veronica. :D
    It took me some while before this configuration worked in MP, so I thought I would share it with you how I did it.

    At first I had a lot of trouble getting all satellite channels to be scanned: about 30% of the scan process the MP config crashed. This was a known problem with the 4.4 driver of Technotrend.
    In this forum I found a solution for this: https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/dvb_s_setup_crash-t23712.html?t=23712&highlight=dvbfix.rar
    So now the scanning of channels goes ok.

    However, I found out that this tweak does not do the CI module any good.
    Only free-to-air channels seem to be available in MP then.

    So, now that the satellite channels are known to MP, I uninstalled the TT drivers, rebooted and then installed the Technotrend 4.4 drivers again, overwritting the files that fixed the scanning problem (see above).
    Then I ran MP again and all encrypted channels that need my smartcard work now!

    One glitch though: it's not that stable somehow. When I close MP, do 'some stuff' and restart MP again and go the the same encrypted channel again, it will stay black.

    Closing it, starting and closing the provided Technotrend BDA-APP and starting MP again is a work around, but a very long one :(
    Perhaps someone can shine some light on this?

    Cheers,

    Cyril

    Hey,

    Great job man.

    Do you have also the Dutch epg running?
    If yes, can you explain how did you do that?

    Greetz,

    Spiderman: I succeeded using the EPG 2 days ago.
    I read this article: http://wiki.team-mediaportal.com/MediaPortalSetup_WebEPG
    Important is that the channel names in MP Config are named the same as the one in the resulting tvguide.xml AND the logos names (ie "rtl 4.jpg" which can be found in "C:\Program Files\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\Thumbs\TV\Logos").

    I did not manage to make it more stable so far.
    I'm building a new HTPC in the next few weeks, I'll try MP and MCE.
