HI GUys,

I have a DM7000 at the mo running gbox 2.1b, however its not the most stable of beasts and needs restarting every so often (annoys peers).
I was thinking that since I have both a windows and linux pc online24/7 that the best way is to run a phoenix adaptor on one of them and use something like newcs.

Now I'm not sure how this will work. For example, do I run newcs and cs2gbox on the PC for example, and get my gbox peers to connect to this?
What do I then run on my dreambox? If I run gbox, that will increase my hop count for remote cards, thus loosing me cards? What else should I run that will get around this ?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I'd suggest staying away from the closed protocols like gbox and cccamd... stable high capacity setups only come from analyzing traffic and optimizing as problems are observed. Hard to do with closed source and closed protocols.

Also the distributed networks these solutions rely on are inherently unstable simply because they're more complex, and its hard for the users to achieve full redundancy (too many variables). Anything that relies on peers correctly configuring their clients to work well is always going to be brittle.

Simpler is typically better if stability is your key concern... no indirect forwarding of requests, just connect all cards and clients directly to one single point. Once that works, duplicate the setup elsewhere for redundancy and ensure all clients remain connected to both.
As in these examples:
