    There are two things; Softcam.key & softcam emulators.

    Softcam.key is used by PC satellite cards like SKystar-2 & Nexus-s etc. for decrypting various hacked encrypted channels alongwith plugins like vPlug etc.

    Softcam (emulators) emulate,through software,various standard hardware Cams for Seca, Viaccess, Nagra & NDS encryption systems. Again, it's of use for PC Sat-card users....or perhaps dreambox owner can use it too.

    thanks for the replys

    My box is an Edision Argus.
    I have 2 LNB's fitted to my sat
    13 degrees and 28.2degrees
    This box has had some firmware change made to it, by my friend who lives in another part of the world. His English is not too good, so I got lost in a little translation!

    It gives me some sort of opportunity to put in keys, but to be honest, im not really sure what to do?

    Can somebody please help

    Thanks
