well i,ve been thinking of buying a new receiver triple dragon or dreambox for the cs functions but also in my reaserch the diablo cam seems to be a good option (thats if the right files are released) i was wondering if anyone has brought one and what they think of them as i noticed the official software has been released also if anyone comes accross any unofficial software could they point me in the right direction cheers in advance
for those of you who have never heard of the cam i found a decent article that may help

I am now testing a new Cam that I am so proud to give you a feedback about my debugging mission…. The new Cam will be called Diablo!
Is a new Cam really needed? Yet another Cam like all the others (emus and some pornos)… NO… as you know when there is something really new on air I catch the moment!
Yes! Diablo! This is a really new concept Cam. I would rather say a Cam which is not like a read Cam (no ISO Smartcard reader but with the Plug-In Smartcard version Dragon like) that looks like a Wireless Module for Laptop to fit in the PCMCIA slot.

What the hell is that? … Well I said it is a New Concept Cam!
To the expert’s eye we can see there is a Wireless Module … so this is a Wireless Cam…
The Cam has been designed to read the Plug-In Sim from the module and read more than a card from the external Smartcard reader.
What other function would the wireless connection provide?
Well first of all I wanna show you the second part of the kit itself…

What the hell is that?
The experts will recognize 3 card readers …. Well slot down dreamer…. This is the developers version at present shown here… But… the Diablo Will come out with a Base module for communication….
1st revolution… The Smartcard will no be read by the Cam but from a remote Case can would hold up to 6 cards even if the standard version will be 2 cards. Extra 6 position card reader will be available in the really next future… but you got it right… up to 6 cards simultaneously….
2nd revolution… The Cam slot on the base allows a certain kind of marriage between Cam and Base… With just a little bit of fantasy I guess you can see it will be possible to share a card between more than a Cam like a home sharing…
3th revolution… The USB connection to the PC to manage all the functions between base and card and to operate like a Season Logger card… Useful or not the traffic with the Smartcard can be logged… More the possibility of send OSD screen messages from the PC to the CAM maybe information coming from Internet…. IP configurable etc…. I let you imagine then…
There we go with some screenshots taken from the beta firmware Stealth…

Some other features??
-Wireless connection up to 6 cards.
-Marriage between Cam and Base without the PC
-Plug-In slot that reads all the CAS.
-Season Logger functions
-About 80 Mts coverage.
-USB connection to the PC
-100Mhz Internal Processor Speed
-OSD messages with Multimedia Functions
-Smartcard Status for Embedded and Wireless Smartcard.
-Parenta Control.
-Smartcard managing function CAM depending (like Administrator and User functions)
-All DVB information shown
-Update by Funcard, OTA, Cas Interface…
My advice?? Stay tuned for more ....
