I'm building an HTPC and my plans is to have latest Mythbuntu (10.04 + MythTV 0.23) installed and configured along side SASC-NG to be able to connect to a remote CS server. I have used an AzAmerica S900HD receiver some time ago and it connected ok to that server, so I still have a valid account to a CS Server. I'll check, but I'm almost sure the CS server I will connect uses a MGcamd as the CS server soft.

As far as I understood, SASC-NG will play the rule of a CS client right? Do I need anything else?

I've installed Mythbuntu 10.04 on a VirtualBox VM and I'm playing with it, configuring and etc... cause my HTPC parts are being shipped from US to Brazil... :-) Would it be possible to test at least the connectivity to the CS server with SASC-NG without have the DVB-S tuner installed, once I'm running on a VM?

What I'm trying to do is to learn/setup as much as I can on the VM while I don't have the HTPC on my arms... :-) Thus, when I get it I just need to build and could get it up and running fast...

Did you have your system working?

Hope I don't get in trouble for restarting this old thread, but just thought I should post what I just learnt.
Mythtv+dvbloopback+sasc+cccam is very heavy on the ecm usage if you are not very careful.
The main culprit is Myth is constantly tuned on all tuners, this can be fixed by turning on the "dvb_on_demand" flag in the capturecard table, this will cause myth to "let go" of the tuners when not in use, preventing them requesting ecms. (also reduces heat and power usage a little)
The another heavy user of ECM's is eit scanning, this will tune idle tuners constantly, it isn't possible (without patches) to restrict this - say to an hour a day, so I reccomend getting your eit data from xmltv instead.

I also found that removing the --sid-allpid and --sid-nocache flags from sasc appeared to reduce my ecm demands and make me a better peer.
