AND SUBSCIPTION CARDS
USED FOR SUBSCRIPTION CHANNELS ON SATELLITE
EXAMPLE CAMS - CONDITIONAL ACCESS MODULES
Most PAY/ subscription Tv services use pay subscription cards, about the same size as a credit/debit card & CAMs, either embedded [built into a receiver] or stand alone CAMs with a PCMCIA slot connector & a slot pfor the card.
Many embedded/ built in CAMS will do the work of a host of CAM formats/protocols such as our Technomate TM5402HD M3 receivers so there's np need to also buy a seperate CAM, but some servoces may need a dedicated or you m,ay want 2 cards in the receriver at the same time- either case you want a CAM- possibly a dedicated CAM whicch inserts in the CAM slot & then you insert your card in that. Some dedicated CAMs may work better & can cover more formats themselves or ve dedicated to one format.
Formats of encryptions/ various versions of the following:
& many others
Softcams emulate CAMs by softwatre allowing far more versatility as the same SMART card slot can act as many CAM formats without the CAM being inserted - just the card.
This has also lead to people sharing cards round a house which has been deemed somewhat acceptable.
UNNOFICIAL ACCESS TO ENCRYPTED CHANNELS
Unfortunately this has lead to encryption systems being routinely hacked either with basic static keys [sets of numbers typically 16 or32 typed in by the individual] or for those that are refreshed too quickly, connection to servers that input new keys every 10 seconds- typically called card share with a large following & hidden industry of unnoficial providers & most satellite receivers having alternate software allowing this along with other encryption access such as BISS/ Director etc.. used for feeds.
CI+ v CI
also watch out for CI+, a newer format that is backwardly compatible witrh CI but certain servoces will only work in.
CARD PAIRED TO BOXES SUBSCRIPTION SYSTEMS
There are a few subscriptions systems that are cards paired to boxes & will not work with any cam or softcam but many software writers / hackers spend time making this not so, & so this is something that is on going- a cat & mouse game between the broadcasters, hardware manufacturers & the hacking community.
