Just posted from guy in Pakistan on the Rumanian board
he said it would happen in March 05 but I dont read that date anywhere.
Is this an old news item reposted? The English is not perfect . . . .

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Viaccess, a France Telecom company, a leader in conditional access for pay television and protection of digital content over broadband networks, announces that TPS, one of the largest French pay-TV operator, has chosen Viaccess PC2.5 smart cards to serve its new subscribers.

PC2.5, launched in June 2003, features crypto-algorithm differentiation that enables the effective isolation of different operations using the same smart card generation. PC2.5 is today the best system available to combat piracy.

Since the beginning of the year, new comers into the Viaccess customers community, such as PBS in Bosnia, Hyundai Information Technology in Korea, Playboy TV International in Netherlands, D.Sky in Taiwan, and Home2US Communications in United States have all attested the Viaccess PC2.5 capabilities to help them protect and expend their businesses.

Security is our highest concern. We are very proud of the confidence TPS places into Viaccess PC2.5, the best system available to prevent and combat piracy. We are convinced this move will help TPS increase its subscriber base, declares Jean-Pierre Coustel, Viaccess Chairman & CEO. With more than 2 millions PC2.5 delivered in less than 16 months, Viaccess is today the third independent content protection specialist worldwide, he adds.

The introduction of PC2.5 in our conditional access mechanism is yet another measure in an extensive and programmed plan, together with Viaccess, to eradicate piracy declares Gilles Maugars, TPS Managing Director for Information Systems and Security.

is the encryption hardware dependant? would it mean current subscribers need new hardware to update to this new version?

I am assuming that this card is almost impossible to crack?

I guess longterm all providers will beef up their encryption which means the DB software will be defunct in the short term until the card can be cracked.
