It doesn't matter whether you have a card or not. The only legal way to 
decode is to use the card in a licensed decoder. Even a softcam and a 
card reader violates patents and licenses and may be interpreted as 
bypassing a copy protection. There is no right to use the subscribed 
channels in any way you want, just in any way they want.

The important point is not whether /you/ want to use SC. Do what you 
want, I don't care. The point is that linuxtv.org is responsible for 
everything illegal that may happen on this list, and its not fair to put 
them at risk after all the great service they offer to us.

Cheers,

Udo
