    I've had no cable now for 4 days and I've spent hours and hours each day trying to sort it. I get channels 1-5 but the rest have padlocks logos and these are the ones not working. Now I bet your thinking like me its my N line not working, I've had the line checked and reset and still nothing, I've even had a new test line sent by another server and still nothing. I think I'm putting in the line details correctly after watching youtube and i have changed it from a N: to CWS = I've re-flashed the box and I think I have set it up right. So am i doing something else wrong, Or could it be my box is shot.

    Below is a photo of my EPG to show the channels locked and if you can please advise me on what to try next I would be very grateful.

    Have you checked with your line supplier that it's ok to change it from a N to a CWS = line?
    Some servers have different ports for N lines, C lines and a mgcamd line (CWS)
    Have you actually had any lines working in your receiver?

    Hi thanks for your help. The 24 hr test line I have active at the moment was sent as a CWS line and that don't unlock the channels. My head is hurting from trying to sort this out.

    Hi Lancable Yes the box is connected ok to my network and I think I have entered the line correctly and mgcamd is active but I'm not 100% confidant with FileZilla yet so not sure..

    Was it sent as a newcamd.list file and have you copied it to /usr/keys and there is an mg_cfg file already in there?

    followed instructions and something is not right.. I'm too tired to concentrate now as been up since 6am and been trying to sort this out for over 12 of them hours. I will have another attempt at this after the school run and some breakfast. Thanks guys for all your help up to now..

    Jason, i think there may be an issue with the H2H and Ipab image, I think that is Openatv, (please correct me if wrong). running VM only. i am getting a box back today to check from a mate..
    it was working fine and he has lost all channels and cannot retrieve them..
    i have a H2H running slyk and VM and it works pretty much flawlessly, will check back in tonight to see how you're getting on.
    i am gonna try a copying my box details to his and/or try a different image.

    I use ipab on my h2h with cable you get a pdf file with full set uo instructions when you download the image.
    Make sure you have entered your NetID in your tuner and under advanced Bouquets managemnet - providers.
    Then populate database and possibly restart you cam.

    The pdf file Is a great guide with detailed instructions.
    You can find out what your netid in this forum.
