    Ok, interesting please if you could keep me updated on the progress of this... So Canal+ don't pair at all do they? Or is it dependent of what CAM you buy?
    You say STB... What PC-Tuner are you using for this?



    Also I see in your system specs J-B-N that you have one of those BlackGold DVB-T2 - can you confirm that only SVT HD is working with that card (even if TV4 HD imho should be free as well, since HDTV will be the new SDTV in the future. Especially when 4KHD arrives...)?

    Thanks in advance..

    From what I understand they don't pair right now at least. Noone knows what will happen in the future of course.

    I am very pleased with the BlackGold card. It does an excellent job decoding SVT HD but I can't watch TV4 HD. In the long run I guess you are right - most SDTV channels will vanish and in order to do that they most switch to new technology.

    Ok, what about your brother what PC-Tuner is he using for MediaCenter? (You said STB and 2 LNBs for MediaCenter)? Or did I get it wrong?

    Thanks, for the information, would be nice to hear how it eventually works. I noticed the TBS6981 cards don't have CAM support? Is he only planning watching FTA channels on those?

    Hi.

    I have a very similar problem, we're moving to a house where Boxer will be one of few options.

    For us it is not certainly not an option to lose MediaPortal so how will we take advantage of what Boxers HD channels?

    We still want to watch and record, preferably in HD so what to use?

    Here's my idea:

    A Boxer CAM with CI+ support 349:- SEK
    An external (found no internal with ci-slot) DVB-T2 tuner, Anysee E7 T2C. price range from 1650:- SEK

    will this work in MediaPortal and will we be able to watch and record HD channels?

    As far as I know there are no CI+ compatible DVB cards out there...

    If you check earlier in this thread where we discuss this you will see it is not possible at the moment to have HDTV channels, except for FTA channels (svt hd).
