    Hi,

    bit of a novice at this, but trying to change the c line on this F5 but not having much luck,

    i created a CCcam.cfg file using nnotepad as per instructions I found on another thread, put it on my USB key and plugged it into the skybox, went to "menu / network local / camds / cccam client / update by USB"

    returned error : no new account found.


    I then downloaded the LAN tool and it said all went well and asked for a reboot, which I did, but I now have no c line at all,

    help!!

    when you save the file you need to change it from text.doc to all files other wise it wont read the file

    Config file needs to be named Cccam.cfg (only one upper case C)
    and it needs to be on the root directory of USB

    Ahh, that might be it, think i might have put in 2 upper case Cs, I'll check it later when I get a chance and let u know, thanks.

    Tried it with only 1 uppercase C, but same thing, all other references to CCcam.cfg are with 2 uppercase Cs, on the skybox itself and on the LAN tool??

    Thanks anyway.

    My file loads OK on my F5 named as Cccam.cfg
    are you putting it on the root directory of your stick

    Format the memory stick Fat 32.

    Follow the instructions in post 10
    of the tutorial here

    One C or 2 shouldn't matter but these instructions are tried and tested.

    Check the file properties are not CCcam.cfg.txt

    See post 25 further down the thread, it sounds like that's your problem

    ya, on the root, updated the software (using the stick) to the latest version and tried it again, still no joy, even tried changing the n: in the CCcam.cfg file to uppercase to see if it would make any difference but the same???

    If you want me to send you a blank cfg file
    so you can just paste your line in PM me your Email address as I can't send attachments
    using the PM system

    Can it not be done manually?

    Yes, but USB is easier

    I have a C line
    My file starts C: server etc. don't know if it matters but there is a space after the colon

    Hi,

    Ya thanks, might do that as I can't see what I'm doing wrong, the file def isn't named ".cfg.txt" and I can update the software on the box using the same stick so I don't think it's a formatting issue??

    Cheers for replying.

    I'm not sure about this but doesn't a N line have to be loaded into Newcamd or Mgcamd not CCcam

    The instructions in post 10 of the tutorial work.

    If you put the line in manually you need to change the protocol
    to Newcamd for N lines, but the process is the same

    I have sent you an empty CCcam.cfg file
    but if you are still stuck try this


    HTML:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=oU3CsWk1rHI
    For an N line change the protocol from CCcam to Newcamd (Right Button)
    You will get a deskey down the bottom showing 010203 etc upto 14

    Look for the spaces in your line, that makes it easy to
    work out what is your host, port, user, pass.

    port will be a number.

    Hi all,

    Got it working, must have been the file, the one I got from bees seems to be working OK. I put it on the same stick and when I went to "Update by USB" it again read the stick and said "No new account found", so I thought it hadn't worked, I was starting to go through the 2nd process that bees passed on to me and rebooted the box for starters, but when I went back into Camds setup the line was there and working.

    Now all I need is a descent channel list, but I'll again have a browse and if I require help with it I'll start a new thread,

    Thanks to everyone who responded, especally bees (u da man) :thumbsup::woohoo:
