I have a DM600 PVR, got it working with Sky TV here, using mgcamd as a client to newcs on the same box.  Will be heading to Australia sometime to see family and possibly setting up a dreambox for them on Austar.  Question is, how to set up the dreambox to work with Austar?  The original Austar decoder they have is using Irdeto2 and not NDS.  I urderstand I need to use 6Mhz along with a camkey in my newcs config file?  Whats the camkey for, and do I somehow obtain this from the Irdeto2 smartcard?

Shouldn't this be in some other category? Using a Dreambox to decode Austar is hardly Freeview related.

Your best bet would be to look on a side such as Austech that has plenty of Dreambox info.

from what I read at Austech, you can't do it. Fullstop, end of story. Have a bit of a read round there, plenty of info.

I don't think you will get much help from a bunch of New Zealanders for configuring a device that is Australia specific...

I would suggest asking this question on a site like www.xpmediacentre.com.au
