looking at moving away from the skybox f5s as its constant glitching is doing my head in.
What boxes do we recommend?
The Glitching is unlikely to be the box, but more your server provider being shit.
Its more of its coming up scrambled on some of the channels intermittently. Reading up its seems to be common fault. No other lines to test it though.
It may be worth buying a cheap server to test, even for a week or so.
Have you upgraded the FW on the F5s?
I know they can fall foul to problems, personally I've never had a box issue with all the ones I've used. The Skybox F5s has been rebranded new to an [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], they're a little flashier, still get them for circa £45.
When I get a better set up sorted, I'll be going with a [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], they seem to be all singing and dancing boxes. But the cost puts me off, ([Only registered and activated users can see links. ]) I may as well get full Sky for a year for the price of one of these boxes. Given the future of CS I wouldn't want to make any long term investments at the moment.
Not upgraded the f/w. Might look for somewhere to get a line for a week or two see if there's any difference.
Price on the vu duo box. Only paying £31 a month for the full package and hd on sky.
Gonna see if I can find another line. If I do and don't get any scrambled messages I think I'll go bonkers at my provider seeing that he's saying it's the boxes and to change to mgcam or whatever it is. SkyboX can't do that
ive found out how to change to mgcamd. I was reading it wrong it was you cannot update the cam not that it isnt there at all.
Going to see how that goes. thanks
Make sure your test line is legit server otherwise you may get worse problems. Use UK SAT as they are reliable and have an auto test line website.
feck me NOOB ALERT,
just got a new line from a new supplier for 30 days then might try someone else anyway cant remember how to update the f5s do i want to use
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] = Cccam.cfg or [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] = newcamd.list
and what the fook else do i do lol

Download the Cccam.cfg file
Stick it onto a USB and put it in the box.
Go into Menu on the box Settings and Upgrade via USB, change the top line from VBS (from memory) to MISC and then scroll down to select file, this will open your USB drive, deleted the .CcCam.cfg file and hit Yellow I think to ADD it it.
Should run and say new account found, reboot the box and you're done.
Lot of people go for Newcamd.list now as meant to be me more stable
hmmm balls tried that and getting scrambled via either cccam or newcamd
had channel list off dets site which looks like 27th jan then also tried ajsat list from 30th jan
example no freeview just says scrambled ?
how can i fully wipe box of all details and try this from scratch

hmmmmm all should be fine though(not test line 30 day sub at min) will wait from email from supplier unless
I have two lines in mine, one for main provider and one is a cheap backup.
WHOOOPS ALL SORTED, had the cable in ethernet port on box but not in the switch behind tv
You fucking idiot hahaha
Mine wasn't working for best part of a week, tried everything. Turned out to be the NO SIGNAL Diode fix for my shared LNB that was on the Sat line was screwed into the box too tight, how about that one
