Tips for Oscam - small note
« : 10 Декабря 2017, 15:09:56 »
Hello suma, good idea to make a manual with basic settings how to use Oscam.
May I add some notes :)
oscam.provid, oscam.srvid(2) and also oscam.tiers are only used locally to identify and display Providers (PayTV name) and Services (channel names) in Oscam webinterface or monitor. Basically this files do not affect decoding, but on large files (slow receivers) they might lead to freezers and rule violation (delayed decoding). So basically to setup Oscam the 1st time: remove this files (and perhaps add them later). Newer versions of Oscam are capable to read Provider and Service-ID from transponder-stream and also optional store detections. This option is not working very well on many receivers, so you should check oscam.conf file, if you have an entry "read_sdt" and "write_sdt_prov": set the parameter to "= 0" (or remove the lines completely what has the same effect as 0 is default value).

oscam.conf, oscam.user and oscam.server are the required files for decoding, while only oscam.conf is required to run oscam at all. With oscam binary and oscam.conf the emulator should at least start and status and configuration should be accessible via webinterface using URL http://box-ip:8888. Otherwise see oscam.conf if there is a section [webif] with personal settings (especially httpport and httpallowed might block connection on default port 8888).

the location of Oscam configuration files depends on the box (operating system) and might be /etc, /usr/etc, /var/keys - or anywhere else *g*. If you have installed Oscam via a configuration tool (what should also install at least an oscam.conf-file) search your box for file oscam.conf or oscam.*
The optional files oscam.services, oscam.dvbapi and oscam.whitelist might interfere with decoding - if you have not setup this files on purpose for this cs-server remove them (settings you got from different cs-server most likely not fit for this server and the cards used here). Without this files Oscam uses default settings what should work on any channel. The oscam.services needed to be activated for a (cs-)reader or a username to be loaded, while oscam.whitelist and oscam.dvbapi are used if the files are available (and if you are using dvbapi-mode on your satellite-receiver as usually done, see Oscam-webinterface > Configuration > DVBApi. By Oscam defaults dvbapi-mode is not enabled).

For information about the Oscam parameters available go to http://www.streamboard.tv/wiki/Hauptseite > select language and see what parameters can be made in the configuration files. As mentioned: oscam.conf, oscam.user and oscam.server are required for decoding while the content of oscam.server can be downloaded from the Billing center > My subscription > Show settings for newcamd protocol > Settings for emulator Oscam. Additional parameters are only optional and not required in oscam.services - so simply copy the box and past the content to your oscam.servers.
Setting up Oscam the first time simply use the parameters that are marked as "parameter is required" on Oscam-wiki website. Additional files like oscam.dvbapi and/or oscam.services which can be used to setup priority and ignore lists are only for optimization and not required.

PS: even if decoding works, log into Billing center and make sure you do not find a message of rule violation in the sub menu "Connections history" after some minutes and perhaps again after 1-2 hours.

Hello, Jogi,
I appreciate your help, and I unblocked the topic. You may add anything you think that will help other users to understand Oscam and use it properly. You may add your post there too.
Thank you again.

Hi Jogi,

is it possible to sent you a PN. I guess your are German, as I am and thus we could write in German instead of English.

My problem is, that I cannot acceds the Oscam.server file ("permission denied"). I access my VU+ uno 4K via putty.

Thus I cannot edit the file and cannot enter the requested data. In the past I used CCCam on a former Vu+ box, where my account worked without any further problems.

Thx in advance?

I access my VU+ uno 4K via putty.

No need to use putty, use DCC (Dreambox Control Center)
https://www.bernyr.de/
I have VU+zero and DCC (iDreamX utility version) for MacOS is perfectly working with it. It's analogue which works with all Dreambox and VU+ models.
Download and install DCC on your PC, add your VU+ IP address and edit any file via FTP folder inside DCC.
After editing any file at etc\tuxbox\config\oscam\ folder, all files shall be with 755 c-mode (also using DCC).

Hi Suma,

thanks for your advise. Since I use Linux, DCC was not working under ubuntu. However, I used my "old" stand alone PC with Win7 and the DCC worked.

I followed your basic instructions as listed in the first post of this thread and used newcamd instead of cccam.

After installing OSCAM (unstable version) via the software center of my VU+ Uno 4k, no "config" neither a "oscam" subfolder were created unter etc\tuxbox. Did I do something wrong?

Therefore I created the config folder manually (without a subfolder Oscam). In the config folder I copied the config files from Jogi (which were attached by him in another thread). Afterwards I used DCC to edit the oscam.server file. I replaced the whole old content, by the information listed under My subscription --> Settings for newcamd protocol --> Settings for Oscam emulator.

Afterwards, I did a restart and started the Oscam. Unfortunately everything remains dark. However, I am able to see the EPG information.

Can you please further advise?

Thx

You have VTI image installed, I have OpenPLI 6.0 image.
Maybe, VTI image creates some other folders different from etc\tuxbox\config\oscam\?
P.S. I installed Oscam via FEED inside the image.

Hi Suma,

I flashed my box with the OpenPLI 6.2 image and followed all your instructions of the post. Finally everything works, except of the UHD channels. But this might be limited by my suscription. Unfortunately the skins under OpenPLI are not as pretty as under VTI. Also the further skins available for installation are more simple than detailed. Overall I am more in favour of the VTI (which is more for beginners like me), than the OpenPLI.

Thus I will try to run it somehow under VTI. Do you know if I can use the three Oscam files from OpenPLI under VTI?

Best, Kaesse

most likely the oscam executable will also work on other images as it is compiled for the processor of your STB
regarding UHD channles: NO, there is an additional layer of encryption that cannot be decoded like its also not possible the decode Sky One (SD/HD) as well. See https://www.cardsharing.cc/index.php?topic=34472.0
BTW: This forum has no option for PNs and I think we all want to keep privacy on things like cs-servers
