I am confused (newbie) :confusedas to which smartcard I should buy in order to use it with usb infinity unlimited/Skystar2/PC.
I am not even sure if i need one.I am already watching encrypted chanells in PC(with combination of SkyStar2(usb)/ProgDVB/softcam keys).
-Will I be able to watch more encrypted channels if I use a smartcard (eg opos,funcard?).
-If yes,then which one should I buy.What should I be looking for in order to pick one?(speed,memory or other?)
-Can one card accept all the enconding systems(irdeto,seca etc)(the ones at least that have been hacked already),or do I need various cards for various systems?
-Is it possible to write all the latest keys,for all the systems, in at once?
Thanks in advance to anyone who answers :)

buying a card is not an easy game m8 some cards specialise in one individual provider and others do a mixture i have stayed away from buying cards for some time as you never know when you will be using it as an ice scraper but if you want to buy one i would chose the provider you most want and then see if there is a card out there that says it is opening it up oh and do check the capability with your sky star andprogramer but a reputable dealer should be able to advise you on this
