Yes, I think they do work, but the question then arises, would you be able to use the PCMCIA slot as a Common Interface slot and use it for a Dragon CAM, I guess the answer is probably no, as I haven't heard of anyone doing so.
I have a desktop equipped with Twinhan VP-1020A(no CI!). Is there any possibilty to use a Matrix Reloaded CAM (with a valid subscription Smartcard) in a separate PCI to PCMCIA adapter in order to decrypt the subscribed channels?
Or maybe is more adequate to use a cardsharing software. That is: I will install one PCI to PCMCIA adapter into my desktop, install the MR CAM together with the subscription card in this adapter. The CS server will take the keys from this "assembly", publish them on localhost (127.0.0.1) and with one CS plugin for ProgDVB I'll take the keys and use them to decrypt the streams broadcasted by the providers I am subscribed to.
Do you think that this will work?
Sorry, but I do not have the equipment yet (the adapter and the subscription card) and I don't want to buy it & subscribe to test this.
