    you dont get clines for free(unless you brought box with a gift) my friend. you need a box,cline and internet connection to get all ;)

    i pmed you but you dont know if have enough posts to receive pms you will have to check your notifications at the top of page ;) if you paid around £50-60ish mark for the box it wont have cline with it if you paid over £100 mark(so called free gift) it should have cline included

    menu>network local settings>camds setup>CCcam client set up>manage config files>CCcam(plugin)
    your line should be there if you have one. if you dont have one there will be nothing there.
    if you dont have camds setup in your menu highlight network local settings tab(globe) and press 6666 for hidden menu it will appear. i also suggest you do some reading here http://www.techkings.org/skybox-f3/41018-skybox-f3-set-up-guide-tutorial.html might help

    Hello guys
    i'm new to the forum.
    I have a similar problem with my skybox f3 but the only difference is that,i actally have the cccam.cfm file loaded on the box and i have a c-line as well but i can only get the free channels,
    I have a test c-line for 5 daysbut i know it's not the c-line as i have tried 2 different c-lines before this one and it ids still the same problem,i can't get scrambled stations like sky sports,sky movies etc.
    Is there like a kind of setting i need to do apart from the dumping of the cccam and all the local network stuff.
    I loaded the c-line myself all the three times correctly but i still can't access so many channels.
    Pls any help for solution will be much appreciated.

    @ cal it does that on all my f5 boxs just the way the boxes work but hey for the price cannot grumble. i use the small up and down arrows on the left of the remote that skips you through cats without freeze
    @koga00 there is plenty you have to do first on a new box but you wont get any answers hijacking someone elses thread. i suggest you start by reading the forum rules!! and start your own thread :no no:

    i'm using broadband+3g router connecting skyboxf5 cccam over the internet but it became stuck and sometimes scrambled.. as i know, the problems occur becoz the 3g router will become idle automatically and need to 'ping'. i need ur help,, anyone know how to overcome this problem?

    could be a poor server or slow internet/ping.

    Folks still not able to load the codes onto my box! I'm in no way a computer guru either, tried you tube tutorials. Tried updating codes onto the USB ect. Beginning to think iv been given dodgy codes. Any help appreciated. Thanks c
