Hi

me again!!

I was just on the MyTheatre site looking for a plugin to get my Pinnacle PCTV Sat-CI (TwinHan - chipset) serial port remote control to work. surfice toi say I couldn't find one so waiting to hear back fromthem.

But I came across a CAM emulator or something there so just wondering if this is an example of a softcam and if so what exactly do they do? if at all anything?

thanx

You can use a CAM emulator with a phoenix mode programmer and use a standard card rather than a sofcam and softcamkey.
