    Unfortunately I think this will drive many people into the more "dodgy" areas of DVB on PC, who might otherwise have bought a floppy- or fire-dtv and a cam.

    HTPC crowd is so small that it won't have any effect.

    I am happy I got a hold of another one that has been used as a demo card for a shop! I tried everywhere but all out of stock in Norway. And you know what? My current card said "bybye" today :( Typical

    OMG! What a shock!

    Best hardware
    Best CAM support
    Best customer support
    Best drivers

    Hands down!!!

    They will be missed :-(
    I dearly hope one of the percieved bigger boys buys their intellectual property and keeps them alive somehow.

    I got my Floppy DTV C yesterday, there was a few units available some days ago and i pushed the Button. The biggest difference is the signal strenght compared with my "old" Mystique Card alias KNC 1 TV Station DVB-C Plus. KNC 60 % vs Floppy 100%, i was getting mad with the KNC ( graph issue, pmt timeout ) i changed my antenna plug, bought better cable but only the Floppy saved my ass...

    If my Floppy breaks one day and there´s no equivalent solution i´ll change to a standalone receiver that´s for sure ;)

    my idea is for all market not only htpc, an example in italy there are many people that after buying a new lcd/plasma fullhd tv with integrated dtt tuner now can't see new hd channell from "mediaset premium" because the cam interface available it's no good for mpeg4 hd channel, for this streaming must have ci+ interface but new cam ci+ now are unavailable in shop and their new tv are incompatible with this new interface standard, and after legally having bought a subscription, they cannot see these channels because they would need to buy a new decoder.

    from me they won't have one Euro anymore
    bye

    I would just like to add my voice to the many who regret this deeply.

    Just a few days ago I received the a new power cable in the post from them, fixing my problem that the DVB-S2 card does not come available after hibernate.

    Great company providing excellent service to the bitter end.

    I hope a solution can be found to keep this product in the market.

    Damn, this is really sad to hear.

    I am very satisfied with my DVB-S2 card, working like a charm!
    How is this going to effect the support of Fire-DTV cards in future releases of Mediaportal?
