only cccam related file i see in tmp is .CCcam.nodeid


how is the camd.socket file generated?

Can anyone answer this?

Hi,
The file is named /tmp/camd.socket but I really don't know if cccam is ok with tvheadend. The only one solution is to test with this file descrbed in the capmt tab.
regards
So basically it does not work with TVheadend.
CCcam does not generate any camd.socket file.

CCcam generates a camd.socket when you execute it ! no need to have tvheadend for that !! If you don't have this file, you have a ccam problem, not a tvheadend one..

Right making a bit more sense now.
Thats the prob when new to both.

My CCcam only generates a .cccam.noid file.
Whats the best resource for CCcam

Thanks been reading through that this morning.
Whats the
47 LD_PRELOAD=/path/to/capmt_ca.so cam_client

cant seem to find it is that an extra plugin??
I downloaded the svn and copied to the capmt_ca.c file from src/extra/ to /usr/local/bin/

In /usr/local/bin/ I have CCcam.x86 and capmt_ca.c.

I edited /etc/rc.local to run /usr/local/bin/run.sh

run.sh contains the following

#!/bin/sh
cd /usr/local/bin
gcc -march=pentium -mmmx -fomit-frame-pointer -fexpensive-optimizations -funroll-loops -fPIC -shared -o capmt_ca.so capmt_ca.c -ldl
LD_PRELOAD=./capmt_ca.so ; export LD_PRELOAD
while [ 1 ];
do
./CCcam.x86 -d > /var/log/CCcam.log
done





On reboot, capmt_ca.so is generated, CCcam runs and connects to a server running on my dreambox.

When i try scan channels camd.socket is generated in tmp folder.



If it doesnt map all encrypted channels, try to map them manually



Is the sound dropping occasionally for anyone else using tvheadend, is happening with cccam and was happening with newcs previously. The video is fine, its just the sound that goes for a second.


Also on some channels the pictures freezes and xbmc starts buffering



Also doesnt seem possible to watch and record 2 different encrypted channels with cccam and tvheadend Sad
Second tuner doesnt seem to get keys even if first tuner is on a fta channel
Hi Sorry to take this off topic.
I tried tvheadend a few months back, but since I was trying to do North America dvb-s and the fact it required custom patching I came to a dead end.

I'm curious since this is now included in the xbmc live releases, what is the skin support? Is there any additional Live Tv sections in xbmc that come with this including a guide/scheduler? I have not seen any screen shots of this in action on a xbmc front end. The backend is sharp.

And if anyone has gotten NA dvb-s going on this please let me know, I would appreciate it.
anyone know if its possible to make fast motion tv like football matches look natural with xbmc, like watching it on a normal satellite/cable receiver?

Really is too hard to look at sport through xbmc (e.g. to follow the ball etc)

Required for this to work is deinterlacers that doubles the frame rate (i.e. frame rate == field rate). I don't know the current state of deinterlacers though.
thanks for the info
Hi everybody.
I am trying tvheadend with xbmc. This is like a dream. But with some problem. I am connecting newcamd 5.25 server with tvheadend CWC settings. 9 channel in a provider scrambled by cworks. Only 2 channel is watchable. Another 7 channel is only problem. When select channel first picture freeze. (a good picture) After 2 seconds buffering. And very very bad picture. But no problem in Windows with this channel. And picture is not smooth at all channel. Including FTA channels.
Sorry for my bad english. Sad

And tvheadend log for bad cwc channel.

Can i use tv-headend with dreambox.? I have installed ubuntu, xbmc and tv-headend but i can't get it to work? :confused2: please give me a STEP-by-STEP guide.
you need to have a tv tuner card, dont think you can get dreambox working with it.

do you have dvb-s/dvb-s2 tuner?
