PLEASE HELP ME!

I have a Nokia Media Master and have heard you can purchase decoders to go in the CI Module slot (also called CAM according to some sites ive been to) in order to receive more channels for free.

I tried to find somewhere that sells them but I had no luck :(
Maybe Ive been given duff information.
Any feedback will be gratefully received.

CAM is no use - the only channels available are those broadcast as freeview

A CAM (Conditional Access Module) is used in most European digital satboxes - but not $ky as they use an embedded encryption system rather than using a CI (Common Interface) CAM

Therefore, you would only, use a CAM + appropriate viewing card to watch foreign channels - which will not be on the same satellite (28 degrees East) as Sky Digital.
For more info, do a search for my Digital Satellite FAQ and read the relevant section on Conditional Access (search fro the string "Chris Muriel" in Google and you'll soon find the FAQ at various websites).
The CAM electromechanical interface is identical to PCMCIA (which alows some CAMs to be reprogrammed via a PC with PCMCIA slot + appropriate software. You can also irreperably damage a CAM if you foul up on this process:(

The same case is used for generic digital satellite and DVB-T boxes throughout Europe
