VDR seca 3 proof setup howto - 15-June-2009, 20:26


Please read this introduction first, it can save you alot of trouble.
Recently I recieved a new seca 3 smartcard from my provider, my old setup was a newcamd/cardserv cardclient/server, as I was not sure that this is a seca 3 proof setup I decided to use CCcam 2.2.1, for the dreamboxes a good solution, converting all the dreamboxes to a CCcam setup was a piece of cake, to get the VDR running with CCcam is a nightmare, it can be done but why do it the hard way if you can also do it the easy way,another reason not to use CCam for the vdr is that it zaps slow, in my current setup I am using CCcam,Newcs, and the vdr-sc plugin in newcamd modus.

What is the difference between CCam, Newcs and Newcamd

CCcam can act as a cardclient AND server
Newcs is ONLY a card server
Newcamd is ONLY a cardclient

I have one dreambox with the smart card, this dreambox runs CCcam/newcs,
normally CCcam can read the card and give the codes to other CCcam clients but CCcam will only accept CCcam clients in order to get a newcamd connection to the cardserver you will need Newcs, only one program can read the card at the same time so not CCcam reads the card but Newcs, CCcam logs in Newcs to get the codes and CCcam gives them to other CCam clients, so Newcs gives the codes to CCcam but also to all supported clients from Newscs, in this case Newcamd.
Next I will give you my setup from the dreambox card server, dreambox clients, cardclient.conf from the vdr, no special vdr-sc plugins needed or
patches, my vdr runs with vdr-sc-0.6.1 just fine, any more recent version will also do fine. All other dreambox card client only need CCam and no newcs.

Now the real thing:

Make sure you have CCcam, Newcs and config files for both programs installed on your dreambox (cardserver) in this example the cardserver has ip adress, go to your webbrowser and enter log in with username newcs and password newcs, go to "manage users" and add some users, I added:

user password:

local local
vdr vdr

the checkboxes: spider, au and so do not have to be marked, rate can stay at 0

that is all for newcs, ftp to the dreambox go to /var/etc and open CCcam.cfg make sure the following line is present and active ( no # in front of line):

N: 34000 local local 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14

with this line CCcam can pick up the codes from newcs, if you have more dreamboxes you will need to add some users:

F: user1 user1
F: user2 user2
F: user3 user3
F: user4 user4

save the file and restart the cardserver, if all is well you can watch encrypted channels on your dreambox, for all other dreamboxes you will have to edit CCcam.cfg like this for dreambox cardclient one:

C: 12000 user1 user1 yes

dreambox cardclient two:

C: 12000 user2 user2 yes

and so on

of course you have CCcam and config files installed on the dreambox card clients.

Last but not least, the setup for the vdr, compile vdr and the vdr-sc plugin as described in the readme of both programs, one hint, make sure you have the kernel source installed and that the make.config of vdr contains the following line:

DVBDIR = /usr/src/linux

assuming you have your kernel source in that location

if all compiles succesfully you will only need one line in your cardclient.conf:

newcamd: 0708091011121314

next you can run the vdr with the sc plugin, works for me, so it will work for you to. Good luck to you all.

for all who want to know what setup my vdr is, one ff card and three budget cards, on a SuSE 11.1 system, all cards can record at the same time.

uname -r
