The whole idea of the Dreambox is that you don't use a card, everything can be done by emulators in the DB software (when files available).

If the currently available S2 options dried up, could you chuck an MII card into one of the card slots without the hassle of a C*nax/MR etc. CAM?

I thought the Emu replaces the CAM and the kerys replaced the card :D

.... but the plain (decrypted) C*nax keys aren't available now, so no s*ftcam.key file for 1W.

They ARE however available (still encrypted) on the MII card, for about £28.

You would of course also need a programmer that supports Phoenix 3.58 mode for around £55, but this might last for a few card-type upgrades e.g. M3, M4 M5!!!!

Still cheap footy if S2 goes bye-bye.

Don't like to sell-out, but could become the only option. V. little FTA now.

Just want to know if I could do it without a CAM.

The DB card slot should work with a card, haven't got it working on mine yet, as I haven't got the plugin, using an X-CAM in mine.
