Hey guys,

with reference to this card

sales pitch

Tech summary

Will I be able to plug one of those CAM things into this in order to use it as Sky+ (I appreciate you may only be able to guess!).

Thanks loads in advacnce!

The problem that I see is that News Corp (who own a lot of SKY) own the IP (Intelectual Property) for the encryption system which they refuse to license to others. Which is why they can charge £10 for PVR function. So I don't know where you would a) get a CAM b) make it work with a Sky card but I stand to be corrected here.

ahh getting a single channel card and cam (Dragon CAMs) working with the sky subscription stuff can be done, check out the sticky in MCE forum.

I want to know if a CAM can be plugged into this little baby. It seems to suggest FTA only but that may just be because its not sold with a CAM???? On the other hand it may be because you cannot put a CAM on it of course hehe

edit: the recording stuff would be handled by MCE, as long as I can get this twin system to decode two sky channels at once.
