How to set the default Softcam

Dreambox Settings

E1 Enigma 1 or E1 menus. Click here for the E2 Menus

Simply use the arrow buttons on your remote to highlight the softcam you require and then press the OK button to select it.
We do not talk about what Cam works with what network subscription card or card sharing on this wiki or website.

By default there is NO cam loaded in the softcam settings as shown below. On the 5series of boxes CCcam version 2.0.x is always included in our images for you. On all other E1 models you will have to down load the cam you require (see below).


Select the default softcam (works with most networks out there) and press the OK button


If you want to see if your network subscription card is working with this softcam, save the settings (Green button) and then select Softcam again and now press the Yellow button to read your network subscription card.


As you can see in this case CCcam is reading the free subscription card from this network. If this screen is blank or has an error message you should read the configuration files for the cam you set up and see what you need to do to make it work.


Note E2 boxes Softcam does not follow what we show here

Cams are managed by the Plimgr service, which acts as a bridge between Enigma and the various user-selected emu's. Through the PLi setup page blue button (if you have not assigned it to something else) -> softcam setup", sticky emu's for specific channels and providers can be easily selected, apart from a default softcam for general usage.

Note: [legacy] when different softcams are used for separate providers, softcam X used for recording channel A will be stopped when you Zap to channel B (using softcam Y).

To add a Soft Cam manually:

FTP the appropriate files to your box and chmod the files

Create an empty file with the same name as the Soft Cam, for example "pcam". Optionally, you can enter the version number of the softcam as text and save it

Upload this file to /var/etc/plimgr/cams/

PLi Manager will now detect the new Soft Cam "pcam", if you entered a version number in your file it will be recognised as such

Choose the new Soft Cam in the Soft Cam Setup

Or via a Telnet session:

FTP the appropriate files to your box and chmod the files

Telnet to your box and type:

echo "1.9" > /var/etc/plimgr/cams/pcam

(in this example your softcam will be displayed as version 1.9)
