Hi there, is anyone able to list what card readers work in NZ for using your PC as a STB or is it the JayCar one and thats it?

I have Sky Digital running from my Motorola STB to my PC via PVR150 and quality isn't that flash.

I have a HVR4000 which has worse quality so would be interested in getting the signal straight to the PC without the STB.

My card is a NZ1700 card aswell

Most of the readers from http://www.infinityusb.com/ work fine.. I have an infinity USB Phoenix which works fine under windows/linux.

I have two GemPlus GemPC Card Readers, one has USB the other has a com port connector that also connects the keyboard to it.  Would anyone know if either these work or unknown?

Thanx for your reply LennonNZ

I've tried to use these GemPC card reader but I don't think they will work.. I had an old one from the ANZ Visa SmartCards. They have to normally talk Phoenix mode to work with the cards. but I had a HP laptop with a smartcard reader in it which worked ok
