ok this means you need a PCI card
even if not procuced anymore the TechnoTrend Premium S-2300 is still
sold, with the growing market for dvb-s2 the the market for used "old"
dvb-s cards will be good

the TechnoTrend Budget S-1500 with CI for 70€
(thats not the only one)
if you wnat hardware decodung for mpeg2 (no real need anymore) you can
use a old dxr3 card
be aware that the ci is bound to a card, a second card would need a
second ci with second decryption card
