Is TwinHan CI REALLY a good choice? (1 Viewer)


Portal Pro
December 22, 2004

My config is Athlon 64 3200+, 1GB RAM, MSI RS482M4-ILD, SATA 200GB. AirStar2.

I got my AirStar2 working thanx to mbb's addition to Agree's SkyStar2 code (well, only the EPG doesn't work here in the Czech Republic).

I own also a Hauppauge Nexus, which I believe has zero chances to get supported in MediaPortal. So I have to settle for another card and I want to get it working simultaneously with my Airstar2. Because you apparently can't get two B2C2 cards (e.g. one Airstar2 and one SkyStar2) work simultaneously in MediaPortal, I have to exlude the SkyStar2 as well.

So, I have set my eyes on the TwinHan CI and before I buy it, I would need to know some bits of information:

1) Will it work with MediaPortal (I actually did search this forum and found contradictory answers to this question)
2) What model number/revision of the TwinHan card do I have to buy in order to be sure to get it working?
3) Is there a way to get some decoding and/or diseq plugins to work with this card in MediaPortal (eg kwadiseq, s2emu). I am not trying to decode stuff illegally, only I do not want to spend money uselessly on a hardware CAM. Besides, I have two subscriptions and the card only has one CI... (I have actually also been given contradictory opinions on this as well.)

Thanks in advance for any advise on this, I must admit I am really puzzled here.

    To answer question number 3.... MDplugins were removed from Media portal in version Currently there is no way of using s2emu or anything else to receive channels.
