3 main causes:

  • Unstaged
  • EUT denied the channel change.
    • You can use cakStats. Note the current ECM count (or use cakStatsClear). Change to another unauthed channel. Did ECM count go up by 1, or stay the same? If EUT denied the channel change, the STB doesn’t tune, so no ECMs.. There is also logging to indicate this.
  • ECM denied the channel change
    • If the ECM count only goes up by 1, the STB was flagged as unauthorized by the ECM.
  • 1
  • 2
  • 3
  • 4
  • 5
