Default Here's how to update the D-Box2 with Remote

This works with most Neutrino images, but there are some variables:

Press Blue and select Tuxbox Commander or TuxCom, this is a file explorer like windows explorer. Scroll down to var and press OK, scroll down to keys and press OK. You now need to select the file that contains the keys, there are 4 possibilities depending on the Emulator in use.

Keylist.txt for evocamd
softcam.key for mgcamd
nagra for gbox
keylist for newcamd

Scroll down to the appropriate keyfile for the Emu in use and press button 4 to edit. Now carefull check the format of the keyfile, you need to change one line to reflect the new key.

An example would be:

N 5401 00 123456789ABCDEF0 ; ROM7 AU Key Time Fri Mar 21 02:21:04 2008

This means it's a Nagravision key for provider 5401 (NTL), Key 00, Key code 123456789ABCDEF0 then the time and date of the update.

Usually, you only need to change 1 or 2 digits from the latest key loaded, so highlight that line and press OK, scroll across to the digit that needs changing and using the number keys like texting from your mobile, enter the new digit. Press OK again to exit the editor and exit (or Home), select save when prompted, then exit and save again.

The last thing is to re-boot the box and so long as you got the key correct and edited the correct keyfile, you should now be watching TV. If it doesent work, you may need to try a different Emulator as there are many different versions of them. I find that Mgcamd or Evocamd seem to be the best.

Default Re: Here's how to update the D-Box2 with Remote

I'm aware that some of you are having problems with this. It seems that Sportster and some Enigma images don't have the Tuxbox Commander (Tuxcom) or a similar file browser. Unfortunately, you will need to connect your box to the network and edit the file from your PC.

Another problem is that in some cases, the emu is only reading the last file on the list, or overwriting the good key with a false key. I have attached a couple of config files that seem to work OK and cure that problem. These need to be copied into the /var/keys folder, please backup your existing files first. Then re-boot the box.

Note: The file is called keys.rar but it does NOT contain any keys.
