Hi,

No, you would not be able to use a Sky+ box for Showtime. Showtime is Irdeto, Sky boxes can only do Videoguard, plus the Sky box is only of any real use on 28E.

Not sure if it would be possible to get a generic satellite receiver with an Irdeto CAM, as I don't know whether Showtime pair cards with receivers.

Showtime do not pair cards but they do a "Showbox". This box can not only record 2 channels but can output 2 different channels at the same time (I believe its one via RF and one via Scart).

As you are in Egypt you should check out the official box.
