I'm trying to buy (cheaply) a CAM for viewing Thor at 1W.
All the cards on eBay, etc mention their version number - with newer numbers like 4 costing more. So the obvious question is this: What version do I actually need to view the stuff on Thor? The latest version or will any of them work?

I believe version 3.03 will work with a titanium card mrdaveb.

As Jimbo says, the 3.03 will work, as will the later version and multi encryption cams like the Matrix Reloaded and Magic Module, for how long of course is a different matter.

Just to clarify... the 3.03 will also work with a legit viewing card as well as all these other options, right?
And when you say it might not work for long, do you mean they will upgrade to a newer version of Conax or that they'll just change the codes or cards or whatever usually happens?

They would appear to be about to change the keys, so the non-legit cards will likely die.
