The TDX software 18.104.22.168324 ( and following versions ) support the Bisskey de-scrambling.
The TDX feature is only tested using the Quattro CAM and the Smit CAM - other Bisskey CAM's might not be supported.
This article describes, how to setup Bisskey on the TDX using the Quattro 4x4 CAM.
If you need a guide fot the Smit Biss CAM : Bisskey using the Smit Biss CAM
1. Check the web for new Biss keys
In this example, I want to watch “1 + 1 International” from Astra 4A:
Bisskey: 1a 2b 3c 81 4d 5e 6f 1a (Hex values)
Note: there are 8 segments and this CA module requires 8 segments. Segment 4 and 8 are control numbers. (1a + 2b + 3c = 81 and 4d + 5e + 6f = 11a which is 1a when using 2 char.)
If the Bisskey only have 6 segments, you must calculate the 4th and 8th segment.
SID (svcid): 17ed (Hex value)
HowTo convert hex to decimal value:
I’m using the calculator that comes with Microsoft Windows 10 (Linux distros and Apple macOS have a similar calculator).
- Select the “Programmer” mode
- Select whether the number to be entered is Hex, Dec, Oct or Bin.
- Enter the value ( ie. Hex “17ed” )
- Read the converted value ( Dec “6125” )
Microsoft have made a small conversion software : https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/hex2dec
2. The configuration of the TDX and the CAM requires some investigation and convertion.
- The CAM requires “Transparrent mode” (route entire frontend to CAM)
- The CAM requires the Bisskey to be entered in decimal with 3 numbers
- The CAM requires the ServiceID (SID/svcid) to be entered in decimal with 5 numbers
- The CAM requires the Video PID (v-pid) to be entered in decimal with 4 numbers (this video PID can be found by adding the scrambled service to an output.. remember to delete)
3. The Bisskey and the convertion:
- 1a 2b 3c 81 4d 5e 6f 1a = 26 43 60 129 77 94 111 26 . The first part of the key to be entered will be : 026 … the second part: 043 … the third: 060 …. The fourth: 129 … and so on.
- Note to the Bisskey: This cam requires 8 blocks. The 4th and 8th are checksums.
4. The SID (service ID) and convertion:
- 17ed = 6125 . The SID will be entered as: 06125
5. The Video PID
- The video PID can be found by selecting the service on any output module. This will enable you to identify the original video PID.
- In my case, the video PID is 6126. This will be entered as: 6126
6. The TDX GUI:
- Set source as “Transparent” (select the correct input module to route complete transponder to the CAM)
- Select “common interface” and follow this guide

Also you will find the Bisskey calculator.
This calculator will calculate the checknumbers and do the conversion from Hex to Decimal numbers.
