    Can annyone please help me.

    I spend alot of money building my own Media Center. The only thing I cant get to work is the TV. I´m using a Hauppauge WinTV NOVA-CI-S tv-tuner and a T-Rex Dragon card (Firmware vers. 1.3).
    I have satelite tv (VIASAT) DVB-S and they use NDS coding.
    I can get a full channel-list when I seach but I cant get a picture or any sound.

    I think the problem is between the CAM and the smartcard because i says "Wrong SmartCard inserted"
    Do I need to upgrade or downgrade my T-Rex card?
    Or is it a completely different thing?
    Can anyone help me, please?

    I don't know if the T-Rex is different to my Dragon Cam but I am on firmware 3.34

    Have a look at the forums at www.ucassupport.nl

    I should add that I am not using an NDS card so can't confirm that it will work, but others seem to have it working in various receivers for Sky

    The latest Predator firmware for the T.Rex (the CAM formerly known as Dragon) is 3.31 & yes it does work as an NDS CAM for use with a legitimate Sky card.

    NDS is actually the company that develops the conditional access system which they call Videoguard. It appears that the Videoguard system used by Viasat is a 'lite' variant of the Videoguard system used by BSkyB in the UK. NDS is owned by Rpert Murdoch's News Corporation which of course is the major shareholder in BSkyB.
