Then select network ID 1. Leave the private data field. Then fill the SID or Service ID for the service you selected above. Then type the transport stream ID in which this SID is available. Then select the ECM ID for this service. Now there is SuperCAS ID that we need to have from CAS server.

Access Criteria is different for each service so now we need to type the AC for this service. Keep in mind one thing that Access Criteria will be entered in the format as mentioned in figure above. We need to use “-” between every two digit of AC.  Then press the Next button if you want to enter these value for next service otherwise press finish.

If you are using two CAS Server for your Digital Headend then you need to enter again different values for same service named as Fox Life. For other CAS server you need to do change in ECM ID , SuperCAS ID and Access Criteria.


After finishing is in the step 4 you need to go the CAS tab and then select Static SCG from drop down menu as shown below in the figure,

Now you can check on your Set Top Box that Fox Life service have scrambled. Now it will run only on activated STBs.

If we will select the UP and then do apply changes for a service then it will scrambled. To descramble it we need to do Down and then apply changes.

One thing to keep in mind is that if we are using two CAS Servers then we need to enter two different values for same service according to step 3. In this case if we will scramble one service then it will be scrambled on both CAS Server’s STBs. Because we have configured SCG already for these two different CAS Servers.
