Hello everybody,

I am searching for some solutions to be able to watch
scrambled/encrypted dvb-t channels on Linux systems.

I don't know what my options are..., but I found this wiki page:
http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/DVB_Conditional_Access_Modules

The situation is that I have separate usb enabled dvb-t devices that do
all work for non scrambled channels.

I would like to be able to add an usb device that makes it possible to
also watch the scrambled channels, I don't know if this is possible.
What is the exact function of a CAM? Does it decrypt date realtime or
does it give out some special key that an other application can use?

I do have a usb smartcard reader that I use for gnupg encryption
systems. Are there possibility to use this device with an cable-provider
smartcards?

Any information is appreciated,

Thank in advance,

Jelle
