Would be awesome if it was able to do that.

Has anyone tried any of the softcam options on telstra cable? If it can start to do cardsharing then that would be a minter ;)

I did a bit of googling and found deviecs that allow you to share one card with more than one box - guess that is what is called card spliting? So presumably you could insert the card into one of these devices and share it with the device connected to gbpvr and your cable box. Theoretically you could then watch one channel and record another at the same time?

System Two: Popcorn Hour A200 ,  Oppo BDP-80 BluRay Player with hardware mode to be region free, Vivitek HD1080P 1080P DLP projector with 100" screen. Harman Kardon HK AVR 254 7.1 receiver, Samsung 4K player, Google Chromecast

When I looked into that all the boxes had to be on the same channel, the idea was that a card sharing server was setup so that you connected thru the internet to that, which was connected to someone else who was decoding the same channel that you wanted to watch allowing you to watch it with no card.

Thats not the same sort of thing. Thats used for people sharing one subscription over the internet. What lchui7 is referring to are the ISO 7816 card splitter which have two or more dummy circuit cards that are inserted in to each receiver, each with with a telephone cable or wireless connection to master device holding the subscription card. They dont need to be on the same channel or anything like that.

lchiu7: Looks very interesting. I have been using gbpvr for the past year or so and it works great with a Hauppauge 250 card. I can see the advantages of not decoding the MPEG2 signal and re-encoding it with the Hauppauge. Also it would seem that since the MPEG2 signal is captured directly to the drive, if you play that back from your PVR to your TV over say HDMI, then gets over the complaints that many users have that the TCL STB only has composite video outputs. This would provide the best signal you could get from the incoming signal.

I guess the only issue for me would be, since you have to put the smartcard in the Irdeto CAM that means to be able to watch TV normally without having to go through gbpvr you will need two cards and that will cost you an additional $19.95/month from my recollection.

Out of interest how much is the FireDTV DVB-C and a Irdeto CAM?

Thanks

Larry


Where can you source these cards + Irdeto CAMs in NZ (and how much)?

Cheers Douglas.

They're not sold in New Zealand. You'd have to import one.

OK, any recommendation as to a reputable overseas supplier?

I'm not really sure. I was lucky - mine were freebies from the manufacturers. Tongue out

You should be able to use either the red or purple label Irdeto CAM. Pictures here http://www.scmmicro.com/dvb/dvb_cam.html#Irdeto1.11 and http://www.scmmicro.com/dvb/dvb_cam.html#IrdetoCCTV. I have both of these.

The older white and blue ones used in Australia are incompatible.

It appears that no one in NZ imports these cards, and I cannot find anyone in OZ (from the list of distributors on the Twinhan website for the 2033 card) that lists them either.

I have contacted the manufacturer to find a suitable distributor / dealer, if I am successful, does anyone else want a card or two?

Cheers Douglas.

Any idea on how Telstra would view this type of thing? I know a paid up card is still required but would they object to it?

intersting. 

This wouldn't work with normal Sky digital though would it? Frown  As i understand it, there is a mechanism in the cards to to you putting them into another CAM.

No it wouldntwork with Sky. Sky use NDS VideoGuard encryption, which has no CAM modules available to consumers.

Definitely interesting reading. Will have to remember this one for if they ever start extending the cable network in Lower Hutt again.

Yeah, I thought that was the case.  Remember reading that a few weeks ago somewhere.  Showed this thread to a friend that has TC cable, needless to say he was quite excited Cool
