    google progdvb and install it,
    when requested, register the elecard codecs and proceed with the installation
    then launch your dvb viewer and it should work
    BTW, why using this soft when u can use progdvb/altdvb

    also before viewing channels go to channel list>channel search> hotbird
    the search takes around 10 minutes, after that you should have a nice long channel list

    dear some times due to bits colours it happens, try to change the colurs bits 16 , 24 , or 32.and if the same problem occures then install sonic cine player in ur system and try to use Progdvb.

    and also never forget about plugins and the active softcam.key, unless you want only pure FTA channels.

    dear bokhnoy

    a bit confused here
    i read like 50 pages and still didnt understand the whole process:

    I am using SS2 on hotbird 13E

    1- should i download a new dvb viewer like prog dvb ?
    2- what is the best dvb viewer to use with SS2 ?
    3- what is a emulator ? and what is a softcam ?
    4- Will TPS AES work ? or we still face the same problem as the box receiver ( key change every 13 min )

    thnks

    1- should i download a new dvb viewer like prog dvb ?
    ans: though not necessary, progdvb is recommended
    2- what is the best dvb viewer to use with SS2 ?
    ans: progdvb
    3- what is a emulator ? and what is a softcam ?
    ans: an emulator 'emulates' the workings of a legal subscription card to view paytv. A softcam is a file that works with emulators (like vplug,s2emu), and is actually called softcam.key. It's a database of key's to view paytv.
    4- Will TPS AES work ? or we still face the same problem as the box receiver ( key change every 13 min )
    ans: if you download the the latest tps softcam (softcam with many tps key's) and install vplug which can get the new key's from the internet then you will be able to view tps almost without interruptions.

    no- in progdvb you can automatically scan the entire satellite (channel list>channel search>hotbird). If you want the latest transponder info go here;
    http://joshyfun.peque.org/transponders/index.html
    download the hotbird .ini file and replace the older ini file in your progvb/transponders folder

    2emu only works for dvbprog ? or work with any viewer ?
    ans: as far as I'm aware vplug and s2emu are cross platform with viewers like altdvb, though my experience is limited to progdvb
    what are the BEst :
    emulators :
    no 'best' emulators. vplug and s2emu can be used together to open many channels ,aka s2emu for some channels, vplug for others, sometimes you should not use the two simultaniously, all depends on the channels.
    softcam :
    the latest one. Once you learn to manually input key's into softcams the 'best' softcam will be one you've made yourself to view more channels than any separate softcam.

    well, most of your questions have already been answered by yuri. altDVB is supposed to be optimised for skystar products, but i too suggest you start it out on progdvb or dvbdream. then use s2emu plugin and latest softcam.key. should you decide to install vplug, do not run it simultaneously with s2emu. vplug should take care of your concern about updating TPS keys, provided you are always connected to the internet. you should run only one emulator at a time to prevent freeze-ups of your dvb software.

    as for the softcam file, EDIT only the providers which are needed and under your coverage. this will result in faster performance of your emulator to decode the channels.

    once you have got your feel of how dvb-s in pc works, then you might opt to jump to mytheatre for dvb software as it is more mature and almost complete suite.
