    I am just wondering if such functionality exists:

    Recording a scrambled chanel on HDD

    Descramable it later with your CAM & SmartCard

    - This is a functionallity my current Topfield PVR is providing and is quite handy.

    Best would be if the CAM and SmartCard could be located in the Client for descrambling (e.g. PCMCIA/Cardbus Slot) which would spare me the effort to run in the cellar (where myserver is located)

    Normally the Smartcard is pluged in my Topfield (before somebody asks)

    There are multidec tools that can do this, but you'll need an external card reader for this and a lot of reading on obscure websites. Plus the recording needs to contain certain streams which I think are not in the Mediaportal recordings. GBPVR does support this type of recording.

    Isn't it a better idea to add another subscription card to your collection? It will definitely save you a lot of frustration.
