I'm 99% sure the 17 series cards won't work at all in a Dreambox. They simply don't work well with PC based solutions either which is why people try and get 45 series cards.

I assume SBiddle must of meant DOES NOT work at all so I am sorry you will have to try and scam a 45xxx card from your Sky installer or Sky.

Hi a 17xxx card can work on PC based application, but in my experience is not the ideal situation.

I no longer have a 17xxx card as I have upgraded to my sky HDI - 45xxx card.

My set up was windows XP with a Jaycar Smart card reader  ( KC5361 ) and NDSCAM0.0.0.4 or NDSCAM0.0.0.5 these are the only two versions I could get to work - but there is a slight problem with this setup which has not been resolved - a Glitch every 10 sec when decoding encrypted channels which can get very annoying.

Of course DVB-s PCI tuner card and ProgDVB / DVBDream

No driver is required for the Jaycar as it uses the serial port of your PC.

As far as I know ( and I tried many solutions ) there is no way I could used the 17xxx card with a card sharing software on the PC I could read an ATR but it would INIT card as CAID 0900 ( this card needs INIT CAID 0969 ), Also could not find any solution to using this card directly in a Dreambox.

So there are really only 2 solutions

Get the required hardware ( PC ) and setup a  HTPC ( remember the 10 sec glitch )


Ring up sky and arrange for a My Sky HDi install ( $15 extra month )
