In Topic: Canal Digital Conax CI doesn't work

25 November 2023 - 19:29

Have tried old OpenBH(4.4), and VTi  (not old). They don't work at all.


The bitrate might explain why the S2 channels don't work on openATV 6.x. Is there a way to fix this, obviously it is not a hardware problem? Driver?


I now got a CI+ cam. It is reconized by the receiver, and I get a message that it is not paired, wait 2 hours. Even if I wait 24h, nothing happens.

According to Canal Digital, only approved receivers can be used. What happens in pairing, is something written to the card?

Saw something on the net about a ciplushelper. What is it, where, how is it used.  


 Thanx for all help!

Recalling a bit:

I bought a VU+ Duo4kSE ty replace my VU+ Ultimo.

I have been running two legal cards with CI Cams (not+) on various hardware for over ten years without problems.

Swedish Boxer (T2), has given no problems, works fine with CI Cam (not+) on VU+ Duo4kSE.

Swedish Canal Digital (Conax) does not work with either CI or CI+. Tried both.


One thing is sure: it is not the hardware. 

After trying various software, OpenPLI, OpenVix, OpenBh, OpenDroid, PurE2, I finally got something working on OpenATV.

But not the latest release (7.3), instead after a tip somewhere, an older release: 6.2 from 2020.


I now get the S transponder channels to work. On S2 channels I get distorted sound and picture, but enough to recognize the channels.


Some questions:

1. Why S channels and not S2 Channels?

2. What differences could there be between release 6.2 and 7.3, is there a similar change in OpenPLI?

3. Is there a "graveyard" somewhere for old OpenPLI releases, I would like to try old versions?

I tried VU+ own software. It half decoded CONAX, pictures were partly scrambled, partly clear. Weird.


I have then installed OpenBH. I turned on logging, and looked at the logs, but what should I look for?

I have a very old (2004) CAM, no CI+ only CI.

I don┬┤t think getting a CI+ CAM would help.


The difference between the DUO4K and the Ultimo seems to be the FBC tuners.

Is there a way to turn off the FBC on the tuners?

It sees the CAM, identifies it as CONAX, but doesn't decode. And no error messages. No messages at all.


What do you mean by first transponder tuned?
