I would like to start by saying i'm quite new to this sat scene apart from reading quite a bit, I had been active in the cable scene before it went to the new Nagra so I know quite a bit about receivers, images and cams etc.

The setup i have got so far is - Virgin superhub connection. I have a dm500 with commando 14.6 with ccam and vpn running. I have got a trial run from MeCCcam.com to get me started. All the FTA channels are working fine apart from the EPG coming through pretty slow. The encrypted ones dont give me EPG till i select the channel but nothing else happens apart from a blank screen.

Can anyone suggest a better setup to start? maybe a better image/cs server and some tips to basically get up and running.

Thanks in advance
