This page displays various PowerKEY statistics. Note that all of these statistics are reset upon program changes:

    The first set of values is a table containing statistics for the various message types that have been received. Each row in the table contains three numbers:
      Received is the total number of the message type that has been receivedISE is the number of the message type that has been validated by the Internal Secure MicroESE is the number of the message type that has been validated by the External Secure Micro (smart card)
        EMMs are the counters for Entitlement Managment MessagesTime GBAMs are the counters for Time GBAM messagesApp GBAMs are the counters for Application GBAM messagesExt GBAMs are the counters for extend event GBAM messagesECMs are the counters for Entitlement Control Messages

    The second set of values is a table containing error statistics for the secure microprocessor:
      Errors is the number of errors that have occured for the secure micro. Note that not all errors indicate a problem; some are expected under normal operation.Cmd/Err is the command and the error generated by that command. This represents the last error. If no errors have occurred, then these values will be zero.Date.Time is the time when the last error occurred, or "Never" if there have been no errors.
        ISE represents the statistics for the Internal Secure ElementComm represents the statistics for the communications with the secure microprocessor.

    Sub Expires - This is date.time of when the subscription authorizations expire. This is typically 30 days from the last time the subscription authorizations were renewed.Prog Stat - This is the Digital PID that ECM's associated with the current program are received on. (See Audio/Video PID.) This value is zero if the program is in the clear.Prog Entitle - This is the current entitlement ID that the current program is authorized with. This value is zero if the current program is in the clear.Decrypt Stat - This will be one of the following values:
      "Okay" indicates that the current decryption status is either okay (decrypting) or that the program is in the clear (see Prog Stat above)."Blacked Out" indicates that the set-top is authorized for the current program, but the program is blacked out in the set-top's geographical area."NoLongerAuth" indicates that the set-top is no longer authorized to watch this program."ECM Strm Err" indicates that an internal error condition has occurred within the QAM broadcasting the current program.
    Late Keys - This is the number of times that a program key decryption operation has occurred after the program data has arrived at the set-top. MPEG decoding artifacts (macroblocks) seen concurrent with these errors may be attributed to this condition.CA Time - This is the current authenticated time received via GBAM's. It must match the current time (to the nearest minute).EUT Update - This is the last time an update to the entitlement unit table (EUT) was properly received from the DNCS.Decrypt Fail - This is the time of the last program decryption failure (see Decryption Status).Last Late Key - This is the time of the last late key or "Never" if there have been no late keys.
