New System Installed


I am very new to all this and have just got a new system installed. I have Astra 1&2, Hotbird 1-5 and Nilesat 101. I have an Arion reciever with a card in the big fancy slot on the front panel (Irdeto Access) and the other slot is empty. I am situated in the middle east.

I have a list of several hundred channels - with loads of them locked. Can I unlock them? Can I buy / make another card to put in the other slot which will give me other channels. Which other channels?

I have spent many hours searching the web - with no success. Where can a beginner go to find answers?

Thanks in advance to anyone that replies to me
