Are you talking about the IPTV service from BT? I have no plans of using that.
Well, there are two groups of people in this forum, those who want to use the STB as media-center replacement, and those who want to use the iptv service in other devices, or on the STB itself but running Linux
Since probably will never be possible to decrypt the iptv stream in other devices unless we can crack the XPU to get the rsa private keys, the option is to get Linux to decrypt the channels...
If that's what you guys are after perhaps someone could draw up a good diagram showing the whole DRM process on the box (I'd be willing if someone could explain the process to me.) This would help everyone get on the same page and we can figure out points of attack.
So what content are you hoping to access?Freeviewiptv (eg the Honda channel)OnDemand (cut down subscription only version of iplayer + movies)
Hi Guys,I doubt access to the IPTV service would be possible without subscription, however decrypting recorded or VOD content from a subscribed box may be possible using a modified client, although I'm no expert in this area.
As far as I'm aware the private keys aren't in the XPU, nor would we need them to decrypt the channels, since they're signed by the content provider with the private keys and decrypted with the public keys (which I guess are 'private'ly stored on the XPU, is this what you meant?) I could be wrong, this isn't an area I've looked into much.
Personally I'm only interested in freeview, and other media sources such as local files (including on USB devices), and network streaming from another machine. From what I understand from Mulder3, there are people looking to get access to the IPTV service though.
