Hi,
I ordered a Sky italy subscription card (mondo+cinema) online.
I want to use it on a Dreambox DM 8000.
How could I set up the box to view the package?

I searched around and learned that the internal readers will fry the card.
so could it be used with a CI cam? or is it not possible?
Is it better to use a smargo card reader?
Do the card need to be in the official decoder for updates?

Please be patient with this newbie :-respekt

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

I believe that they do work, but you have to use newcs as a card server, the same as with the new white card in the UK. Try to google around with "sky italia newcs" and I'm sure it'll turn up some useful links.

I understand that cccam2.1/newcs will reduce the voltage of the internal card readers to that of the card. but is it safe on the long run?
Maybe it is better to get a smargo to protect the "investment" .

What about the updates? can it happen without the official box?
