    Mgcamd issue

    Sponsored Links
    This is driving me nuts. I have 2 lines from same supplier. Both n lines. I have had the 1 line for some time with no issues using mgcamd so I know my cfg file works. Channels clear no problem. But when I put the new line in new newcamd list channels don't clear. Anyone else had a similar issue?

    Have you checked to see if he runs the two off different ports if so the port number will need changing

    Does one line have 2 port numbers and do you have a keepalive on top? 2 lines if same server is pointless though.

    Where in the line would I find the port number?

    When you say the channels do not clear are you just testing the second line only?

    Just compared port numbers and their both the same.

    Port is the number after host id and before username normally 5 digits

    They maybe the same but some suppliers use different ports for newcamd And mgcamd theres where your have to ask your supplier if this is the case and if so get the newcamd port number from them

    Yes but here is the thing I have 2 separate lines both with the same port number.

    1 works in mgcamd but when I replace that with the new line I get nothing.

    Right it's 2 boxes . Supplier sent you new line as N or CWS which matches your present line format? You're using same mg_cfg file then? Does new line work in old box?

    Sent as N converted to CWS and yes to all above with exception to trying new line in old box. Will have to give this a go when I get home. But old line works in new box so surely the new line should just work. It does work as ccam but I prefer to use mgcamd

    Sounds like a protocol issue on his end then

    Noted, your post wasn't very clear about using a second receiver.

    Check you haven't got a (1) next to your new file that was sent to you

  19. #19
    Just checked and don't have that.

    Its either when you've edited its been done wrong or as bangord said it's a protocol error his end. just ask them to send it you as cws line
