Hey guys,

I have looked everywhere and can't seem to find anything anywhere regarding sharing a smartcard within 1 PC. I have a DVB-s2 card but without CI function but I really want to watch the SKY HD channels that I subscribed to. I can watch all my SD sky channels with my DVB-S card tho, which does have an attached CI.

Basically I wanna get rid of ALL equipment in my livingroom other then my HTPC and 42" HD TV but keep all the funcionality I had before.

heres what Im using withn my HTPC computer:

Operating system: Windows XP MCE 2005
DVB software: DVBVIEWER Version 3.2.4
PCI card 1: Technotrend budget DVB-S with CI
PCI card 2: KNC1 DVB-S2 with BDA Driver without CI
CAM Module: Dragon Cam
Smartcard: SKY UK (full package inc HD)

Please HELP lol

PS IM NOT A NEWBIE to this, I've tried looking everywhere but have now dicided to ask...maybe I've just been thick and its staring me in the face but I need help. I realy don't mean to seem 'lazy'

Unfortunately you were trying something which probably no other members had yet tried, hence the lack of replies.

Its cool. The answers obvious when you know how, its just getting to know how!!! which means Trial and error in the dark until you get the damn thing right lol. No-ones stated this anywhere I've looked.
