Does different cards pick up different channels?

Hi

Before I fianlly ended up with my TwinHan Compatible PCTV-Sat CI and before I discovered this site and learnt CAMs weren't really nec given softcams and plug-ins, I had the AverMedia DVB-s (my favourite of the 3) and then the WinTV Nova-s and on both it appeared I was able on Astra to pick-up one of the Star stations and I think the TelevisionX or Playboy TV previews and the cartoon network though CN is now NDSed despite showing up in MT and ProgDVB scans as unscrambled. The previews were picked up under hotbird but the dish was actually pointing at Astra

Does this kinda thing make sense or is it just a dish thing or that these stations are all now NDSed but weren't before. I've always wondered why that was since I've never been able to replicate them using my PCTV-Sat CI.

thanx

I did some more research and have discovered that the Asian Star channels became encrypted some time in March which was about the time I was going thru cards like they were out of fashion
