CCcam is a a protocol that enables server/ client communications for the purpose of sharing digital electronic control strings that are used on some digital media platforms. It is a kind of cardsharing protocol, where “sharing” simply means the right to access digital packages by connecting to a CCcam cardsharing server via the Internet. The main function of such server is to transfer the encrypted channel codes over a network to computers(and other IP enabled devices) connected to that server. 

If you have at least a hundred channels, you might have realized not all are Free-To-Air. Some of them are obviously locked/scrambled/encrypted. And they are encrypted because you didn’t pay the satellite provider to make them available for your viewing pleasure. Now, your standard satellite receiver will show only those channels that you paid for, there’s no way it can decrypt (unlock) channels at no cost since it wasn’t designed to support cardsharing or run CCcam protocol software. But, there are other models of satellite receivers which are cardshare-capable and a lot of of them are available these days.

One of the most popular choices is the Linux-based satellite receiver called the Dreambox. Once you get yourself hands on one of those bad boys, hook it up to the PC, download and  install the CCcam computer software, configure it and run it. The most popular on the African continent however would be the Strong HD decoders, from Strong Techonologies Ltd. Qsat decoeers also support cccam. Whichever of these decoders you have, if you can correctly configure cccam on the decoder, you will be able to establish a connection with the CCcam cardsharing server of your choice.Your receiver will be communicating with the server which in turn will be sending you the decrypted channel codes and key strings, meaning that you will gain a full access to the satellite TV channels which were previously unavailable. The cardsharing server shares the decrypted information obtained through a valid satellite subscription card with other users who are connected to it. The amount of obtainable channels depends on the area you live in, the direction your satellite dish is pointing at and its size. 

Now, finding a CCcam Server is not difficult, there are several on the internet. But finding a reliable, stable, and cost effective cam service is not always easy. Finding a server that provides access to local channels on the African continent is what matters to most people. Perhaps, you have tried all kinds of servers, but remain eternally disappointed. Perhaps, you have heard of servers that don’t work like they are praised and advertised. Help has come to you.

The common thing in Africa is football. And every lover of football knows the networks that provide the best services. And you and I know the charges are sometimes crazy. If these networks were really thinking about the ordinary man and not the bourgeoisie in society, they would likely reduce the cost of watching tv and enjoying some little entertainment. It’s always a perfect thing to do, if you have the money and can subscribe to a satellite network monthly or yearly to enjoy all you favourite programs. That’s absolutely perfect.

If you however are not like the politicians, the businessmen and the highly placed executives in society, CCcam might just be the solution to all the difficulty in accessing good tv programming. The best server on the continent of Africa, TV1, is here to help you out. Maybe you have already heard about tv1, but are not sure it works. Well, I am telling you this day that, it is the most reliable, stable and maintained server you can find anywhere in Africa. Channel zapping is like never before. Are you ready for a new digital experience?

Good day everyone!

It’s always a great feeling to get on the laptop and do some tech writing. The past couple of days, I have been extremely busy dealing with Cisco configurations and networking labs, and after much typing of verbose network commands, I don’t intend today to rattle of fresh volleys of illusory networking rhetoric, but to write about something that has especially been a major challenge to many a user of satellite tv.

In the first place, it’s important for you to know that ” OTA automatic downloading” is a major problem on all FAKE ‘Strong’ branded decoders, most especially fake 4669xii models . But that is not to say it may not occur on a genuine, verified decoder.Many satellite users have experienced this problem at least once, and still others experience this everyday when they turn on their decoders, without an idea how to deal with the situation. If this problem has been your nightmare, then we bless God for the grace given me to write.

By now I’m sure you are asking what the heck is OTA with it’s accompanying problems. Well, OTA actually stands for OVER THE AIR programming, and refers basically to a standard of satellite broadcast transmission by which various methods are adopted for the distribution of new software updates or configuration settings to mobile receptors. When this begins to occur on a decoder, satellite transponder settings may have changed or could also be due to fake firmware and the like, and its recurrence can really put one on edge.

Let me remind you that, as of yet, there’s is no software patch, firmware upgrade or internal tweaking that is able to successfully extirpate the problem of automatic OTA downloads. Here’s a simple step i have for you that works

1. When you turn on your digibox and have a display on the screen saying: “OTA downloading upgrade, Please wait”, simply turn the decoder off, and disconnect the sat cable that connects to LNB 1 on the rear of your decoder.

2. Now check the cable to be sure the neutrals(several threads of wire) have no contact whatsoever with the positive copper wire(the big single wire)

3. Turn the decoder on again without connecting the satcable to the decoder. When the firmware loads, you would notice a “No Signal” prompt, and then the decoder would restart by itself after about 10seconds.

4.After restarting by itself, put the decoder off again, reconnect your satcable to the LNB receive port, and switch the box on. After loading, you should have pictures displaying. So hurray, OTA downloading is gone…… BUT not forever if you do not follow through with the next step.

5. This step is vitally important. You should navigate with your remote control to MENU > INSTALLATION >(password:0000) OTA MENU>>>>>> Now on this page, you have DEFAULT in the first field(Scan Mode) Change this to USER. Then move to second item(satellite) and select any other satellite different from the satellite used to install your tv.( you can check what satellite is used for your tv installation by simply selecting any channel on your list, and pressing the INFO button on your remote control twice. So for instance, on my plasma, you realize that the channel showing is EMMANUEL TV, with several other parameters. The satellite is 28.2 degrees East Astra 3A..satpicso then, in my OTA menu, under satellite, I would have to use any other satellite apart from Astra 3A, and then save settings and exit.

6. When this is properly done, you should no longer see any annoying OTA messages again, and hopefully your imitated digibox would cease to give you any headaches ever again..lol.

NB: To verify if your Strong decoder is an original product, navigate to MENU > SYSTEM SETTINGS > (password 0000) SECURITY SETTING > CODE NUMBER*************. Get onto the Strong Technologies website, and navigate to decoder authentication, where you’d find an option to verify the authenticity of your box or otherwise. type in the code number from your decoder, and wait for a response.

And if you discover yours is genuine, lift up your head and bless God, cos the fakes are more than the genuine – hehehe!

So that is that folks. Keep your comments and questions coming as we look forward to our next article on the topic ” HOW TO USE YOUR ROUTER AS AN ACCESS POINT ON YOUR NETWORK(imagine that you have two routers, one is only wired, the other is wired and wireless, so you wanna use the latter as an AP connected to the original NAT router.This article is going to be very interesting for all networking addicts and even newbies). God Bless You!

It’s been a while since my last post on this site. By the special grace of the Lord I have researched a few things in the Digital Satellite world that i would like to share with you.

Before reading this, note that recent happenings in various parts of the world are directing all of mankind towards a certain awareness. Jesus is due to return very soon, and whatever amends remain for every earthman to make in reconstructing our lives towards a genuine commitment to Jesus and His saving grace, this moment would be most appropriate to activate such a process.

I believe God has enabled every earthman with divine abilities of prescience to decry what lies ahead of all mankind in the coming years, and without the energy of God’s Spirit, it is obvious no Christian would survive the pressures of a world now laden with an awful dimension of sin and negativity.

With that being said, I join Millions of Americans and believers in freedom and basic human sanity to mourn the 2,996 people that lost their lives through terrifying circumstances on September 11, 2001. Jihad, Terrorism or whatever name they give it, the attacks of that day were a mere display of weakness, foolishness, pusillanimity and cowardice by faceless poltroons who possess the lowest of minds by thinking violence is the best way to preach faith. May the Lord of Peace preserve and prosper all earthmen that seek peace, love, Godliness and human comfort. Amen!

Now to the topic of the day, I am going to show you how you can connect your satellite decoder to the internet and virtually transform same into a modem, browse whatever links and access millions of free online videos and IPTV on your decoder.

These methods are all proven and stress-free, and every technology enthusiast, every satellite hobbyist, and every soul who cannot live without a computer earth or in heaven, should read this, work it out and share the info.

First of all, items you would need for this configuration include the following :

1. Dreambox/Strong SRT 4669 Z or any HD Digital Satellite Receiver (decoder) with a LAN or port

2. Laptop with Windows 7/Ubuntu 10 or higher

3. RJ-45 LAN cable

4. Mobile Broadband (USB modem / Data Card Switch)

5. Flash driver /USB stick

Now let’s move on to the real thing.

1. First of all, be sure your Decoder is all set and working.

2. Insert you flash drive into the USB slot in front or behind your decoder.

3. Now connect you mobile broadband modem to your laptop and connect It the usual way you do for browsing. Be sure the link is up and test a page by opening http://wp.me/Jddi or just run an ICMP echo ping request on the network.

4. When you are certain everything is okay and packet flow is smooth, connect your RJ 45 LAN cable to your laptop’s Ethernet port.

5. Now connect the other end of the RJ45 to your decoder’s Ethernet port, usually
located at the back or the right side of most decoders. The Ethernet connection led should blink so you can be sure of proper connection of the cable.

6. When all that is done, you would have to now turn to your plasma and hit menu on your remote control. Select SYSTEM SETTINGS, then go to IP SETTINGS.

7. Usually what you would see next should be something like this:

DHCP USAGE – ON
IP ADDRESS – some dotted zeros
SUBNET MASK – 255.0.0.0
GATEWAY – some dotted zeros
MAC ADDRESS – an address that defines the unique id of you Receiver’s LAN card

Down below on the left or right corner of the screen, you should see a prompt “ press to obtain IP address. Usually on an SRT 4669 or other newer Strong decoder models, all you would have to do is straightaway press the recall/red button and wait for DHCP to assign an automatic IP ADDRESS. Depending on how several factors, this process of waiting could take sometime.

8. If however, after waiting for a reasonable period of time a unique IP is not assigned to your device you would be required to key in the settings manually after you have set “DHCP USAGE” to “OFF”

9. IP ADDRESS : 192.168.1.100 (You can use any Private IP address provided it falls within the same range/network of your router. The network of your router is usually located on a sticker at the back or side of your router. For example, If you realized you router has this address at the back as its IP 192.168.0.254, that would mean that, your network is 192.168.0, and therefore the last digit which would actually identify your decoder would be any value between 1 and 253. You could have something like this 192.168.0.75 as the Static IP for your decoder.
SUBNET MASK : 255.255.255.000 (This must always be maintained in this format)
GATEWAY : 192.168.1.1 (This is the same as the IP address located at the back of your router)
DNS : same as GATEWAY

When this is done, save and exit the page.

You can now begin exploring the Internet Radio by different genres (SRT users, go to storage, select internet radio or online weather service), scan and enjoy as many as you want for free. You can also browse through YouTube videos, and also enjoy the Internet Weather Service for any city in the world. By pressing MENU and navigating to ENTERTAINMENT, you would find options for free IPtv, Youtube Google, Internet Radio and Weather Services.

It’s simple and interesting. In the process of setting this up, you can always leave a question on this page and I’ll always strive to respond promptly.

When you are done setting up your Digibox and enjoying all the freebies, don’t forget to leave a comment on this page describing your experience.

NOTE: There is an important update on how to setup your Satellite Receiver (Decoder) in higher modes to enable you watch and enjoy “DSThieves” premium channels for less.
