Has anyone had any success getting OSCAM to work with the new Sky cards? Just had Sky installed and have received a NZ07K*** card and not the usual NZ45*** card.

kenkiwi or kiwiken was on here, he was a guy from the UK where card sharing was easier, but I think its now died a death since NAGRA3 came in, or something like that. 


I'm unsure to his success but it wouldn't be advertised here. 


I doubt it was fruitful, the encryption on the cards.


Anyway... shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

The little things make the biggest difference.

For anyone that is interested I managed to get OSCAM working with a NZ07K*** card by following the instructions by fe31nz in this thread




I have got my new Sky card working in my card reader now, thanks to a very useful ticket I found on the Oscam site.


This is what I did:


1) Got the oscam-svn source code and modified the nds_atr_table in reader-videoguard-common.c to add the ATR for the new Sky cards, then compiled and installed it.


2) Changed all the settings in my oscam .conf files to update the card id values (caid, ident and port) from 096A to 0958.


3) Add a boxid setting, giving the hex translation of my decoder's box ID (which can be found under the System menu).  This is the critical change - it prevents Oscam from trying to read the boxid from the card, which fails as it does not know how to do it properly from the new card.
