I have a Jaycar reader + NewCS 1.63 + Acamd setup working great - only problem is I try to watch VICE or any channel with R rated content and it doesn't work. I see NOT OK in my NewCS console.



When I check on the Sky box there are no parental blocks enabled (is this box or card based?). Is there a way around this? Its very annoying :/






PS Sorry if this is in the wrong spot, mods feel free to move it to the Sky forum if you think its best suited there instead.

I have my MythTV box (Ubuntu 18.04) set up with an Omnikey card reader, pcsc drivers, Oscam and minisatip to create SAT>IP streams for the channels.  I only get blocked when the programme is R18 rated and the time of day is too early.  Lesser ratings do not cause any problems.  I have never found any way around the block though, so I can only record R18 things late evening through to early morning.  There is usually a repeat in that period I can record.

Thanks for the reply, a bit of a shame about that but I guess that's one good part about sky, shows are usually repeated in the early hours and mid morning the next day!
