I thought the time would come when I needed to insert a card to be able to watch some channels...... and that time seems to be here now :-(

The TV Chile, Tv Venezuela, etc wil be encripted in IRDETO 2.

I'm still very new in the world of satellites and things don't seem to be 100% clear for me just yet.... but I keep trying :-)

Now, the channel provider talks about:

To be able to receive these channels you will need a receiver with a CAM or built in CAM irdeto 2

or

you can apply for a "Special CAM Key-fly" (usable with all receivers that have a slot common interface, this allows the posiblity to use cards from other provider, to be able to make applications to extend the service (other channels) or access (on-demand) directly from a mobile phone or Internet for occasionaly proposed events)

I'm rather confused with all this but basically I want to be able to access the channels in the cheapest posible way.

I was thinking in a dreambox but now the Technomate 1500 CI+ seems the one to go for.

Given the above information, which is the stb to go for?

Also, can anyone explain in practical terms what a "special CAM KEY-FLY is"?


Thanks in advance

I think it would be fun to work with a linux based machine.... I don't have experience with Linux but I have worked with Unix OS for years..... that is more or less half the battle won....

I Came to the conclusion that any machine that offers room for updating needs to be consider seriously and the more upgradable the better - only question still to be answered is the question about cost:-Cbigsmil
