I don't know about the dragon being the best cam at the moment, but I am very happy with mine. Apart from its excellent support for official canaldigitaal and sky cards it also opens up tps and others. I use an infinity USB pheonix to program mine. You could certainly do worse thing with your money, the dragon rocks.

Just like to add to this.
XCam is getting about the same as Dragon at the moment.
I programme my Dragon via loader card & Mastera progger (bit old, but so am I :))
The reason for this post is basically just to save you a few bob. If your X Cam is clearing things, (and support seems good for it) why change?
cjgall says *I don't know about the dragon being the best cam at the moment*, and, let's face it, everyone has their own opinions.
Personally, I think it is, though I'd be tempted to keep your X Cam for the moment or at least until support dries up..:cool:
