Dear experts, I want to know about encryption used by local digital cable operator in Pakistan. Also what happens when there is encryption or CAS (Cable Access System) implemented by operator. Do we receive black screen with no access logo or we do not receive any channel?
Reason for this is my personal experience.
My local operator in Lahore started digital service recently and is charging Rs 550 /month for digital cable as compared with Rs 350 / month for analogue cable. I bought digital setup box from local Market.
I tried full scan at different QAM, but no result. I am using default symbol rate 8765. During scanning, setup box showed something on signal strength bar but no channel.
In this setup box, there is also one smart card. Does no channel mean cable operator is using CAS (Cable Access System) or it means signal strength is less? Or cable operator is using some different symbol rate.
I even tried to find signal strength using signal strength function on those particular frequencies, but no result. I also manually scanned those particular frequencies with no success.
Any info from experts is appreciated. Thanks
