I am interested in a tv which has a CAM slot, is this the same as a pcmcia slot?
PCMCIA is the actual form factor of the card (It's old PC terminology) and they are found on most laptops
CAM, as I understand it refers to "conditional access module" or some such goobledegook.
Both terms are sort of interchangable, mind you the Pio plasmas have PCMCIA slots, but they're used for a CFII reader, might be better looking for "top up tv" compatible if that's what you're after.
Well i am looking at the toshiba 32wlt58 which in the operators manual indicates that it has a CAM slot. I have a PCMCIA memory card reader and was wondering if it would be compatable with the tv.
ahhh, I assumed you were trying to get top up tv.
No experience of the tosh, but I would say highly unlikely.
Almost all PCMCIA slots in tv's are for conditional access, the PCMCIA card would slot in but do nothing.
the only TV's i know with in-buiult .jpg readers are..
the pioneer xde plasma (which uses a PCMCIA slot)
some panasonic's have an SD card slot, as do a few "no name" makes.
hope this helps
