    So at least you got the answer you were searching for! At least that's what I heard on other websites!
    Lets hope the issue I have raised isn't lost!

    gdmm (post 1) infers that it did
    bellejt (post 50) says 5.4 007 is fine
    Yep on 5.4.007 using 5.4.006 or earlier no problems at all, this has been said no matter the Oscam version you use from 5.4.007 it will just stop working after couple minutes running, if you check Oscam logs you will see the high ecms, going back to a earlier build that problem dos not exist no matter the Oscam version.

    Tatally agree with x5, and johnhoe, I have now also tested oscam 11693 on vix 5.4.006, and no problem so far. It seems that the problem started from 5.4.007, and up to 5.4.010 with minor changes.

    Is the problem with all packages or just that one on 19e? I can't find the issue on any of my boxes (they are all ARM boxes).
    Zgemma H7S running OpenVIX 5.4, Darkmotor, Triax TD110 dish, Inverto Black Ultra dual lnb
    LG 50UM7450 4K TV, Pioneer VSX-534 AVR , LG UBK80 4K Bluray & a Playstation 4.

    Issue only present on Mips boxes NOT Arm boxes.
    a) Characterised by higher ecm times across all packages but more noticable on a certain 19e package.
    b) Also characterised by eventual periodic stopping of Oscam and then manual start of Oscam is needed.

    I don't know if it's relevant. My box is a Zgemma H7 which is ARM based and I only use OSCAM with an expired 0963 (white) Sky UK card to watch the remaining few FTV programs.
    I saw the mention of long ECM times.
    Recently I think I see the ECM time creeping up from it's initial value (of around 0.07s) more quickly than I am used to.
    It doesn't cause a problem though and I reboot quite often so it resets back to 0.07 then and slowly increases as time goes by.
