    Lets try putting it this way. Virgin effectively have 2 systems, the standard system and the TiVo system. The standard system uses smartcards, the TiVo system does not. They have supplied only TiVo boxes for a few Years now, there are fewer and fewer standard boxes left. VM are in the process of moving everyone onto the TiVo system

    The ZGemma boxes use cardshare to open encrypted channels. TiVo does not use a card, so obviously no cardshare

    Noone is saying anything of the sort!

    ONE user is reporting that SS main event sd is still working for them but there's currently a bit of debate whether they're watching the correct channel or its IPTV.

    Most have reported SS news hd, SS mix hd and SS football hd are working but its widely accepted football hd will go soon.

    It has been confirmed that some with north east netids are still getting the SS sd channels but this has been suggested to be a result of a phased roll out a d they will go too.

    You need to accept they are gone mate!

    Total agreement with that, you should always have a back up, presently viewing Golf HD.

    IPTV costs less than a standard cable sub its getting a decent one thats the problem for most. A VPN should be used as last year most were being blocked usually when 3pm kick offs and champions league matches were on. I also use my zgemma h2h for iptv but it can be problematic and requires a fair bit of setup and configuration to keep it running as sweet as it can but tbh i prefer using my firestick for it as I have an app that is identical to slyQ and works great and costs me less than a ton per year for both vpn and iptv.

    You should contact your IPTV provider, you need the full IPTV login details to configure the IPTV Bouquets maker. You can't just run it if the config hasn't been setup.

    Mendi if you're going down the IPTV route its probably better for you to get a fire tv stick or a good quality android box its much simpler to set up for you.

    He only bought a newer higher end zgemma so might need to keep funds low.

    Some providers do plugins for the Enigma boxes just requiring user/pass or MAC authentication. Some providers would even create an image backup with the IPTV included but don't expect such good service from the cheaper suppliers.

    BT Sport is HD only on VM, I believe that Premiere Sport and Freesport are HD only on all platforms, so I expect Eurosport to be next. In other words, I expect that Eurosport in SD will be the next to go off.

    Not a new stream M8, they have removed the 1841 CaID from 2 of the 3 existing streams including the one with the LCN in the Tables. Not so easy to manipulate the ABM to add a channel without a LCN
