OpenCNP does not see CHS BSB charts

Would anyone know how I could get OpenCNP to see my Canadian CHS BSB charts?
I don't have an issue with seeing the NOAA raster charts, is there a conversion that has to be performed on the CHS charts?

Re: OpenCNP does not see CHS BSB charts

The CHS charts are in the encrypted BSB4 format - you need to get the plugin to be able to use them.
Download the plugin from PlugIns | Official OpenCPN Homepage
Note that you have to be running a recent 2.4 beta of OpenCPN to use it. The NOAA charts are in the unencrypted BSB3 format, so they don't need the plugin to display.
More on chart formats in the manual at Chart Formats | Official OpenCPN Homepage
