    I already have that -

    It does not have a wrapped DLL we can use with c#.
    It does not have clear documentation on how to descramble.

    Apart from listing methods without examples - it's pretty useless unless you do trial & error.
    Of which I cannot due to lack of subscription support.

    Why, for what reason do you stay far, far away from them?

    Here's where i finnaly found out, even though i thought it was allrigt first off. https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/...-terratec-cinergy-s2-pci-hd-67024/#post497462

    Is Hauppauge ok then? Or Twinhan? ...despite the need for two slots regarding CI, i've got a HUGE case ;)

    If you can put up with two slots per card then Twinhan & TechnoTrend & KNC1 cards are ok.
    Hauppauge also works but you can only use 1x WinTV-CI device via USB.
    Check for CAM compatibility before ordering.

    And even if your CAM is able to decode more than one channel at the time, the WinTv-CI is NOT able to do that!

    My suggestion is to not to buy it. It is slow, can only decode one channel, and at least the rev i have here is very unstable.

    I refused to spend a lot of money for a floppydtv/firedtv in the past and thats why i bought the cheaper ones.
    With which i had a lot "fun".
    CI took more than 20 seconds to init, drivers were extremely buggy, drivers got worse with each new release, card did not work properly after resume from s3/s4, 2 cards suddenly "died" and vanished from Devicemanager, support..... does not exist, the list is long. :)

    I do not know if their products and support are better now, but you might know how it is when you only had bad experiences with a brand in the past.
    you wont buy it again. :)

    Do you have any suggestion for what to buy? Im scanning market and forums for a working replacement for dual floppy dvb-c solution. (Sweden Comhem) I also noticed that for CI on some cards uses a slot, so no buy there for me.

    Since the CineView CI module is now supported in MediaPortal, I think the KNC ONE products are pretty decent?

    Would you say Digital Everywhere FloppyDTV would be a bad deal to buy now that they're out of business? How is their compatibility with Win7? Or is there another DVB-S2 card you could recommend?

    i have 1 floppydtv-s, 1x floppydtv-s2 and one firedtv-s2 running on my server PC which uses W7 64bit rtm.
    no problems with these cards using the latest beta driver from the DE website.
    and i am _not_ using the legacy Firewire driver btw. :)
