Hello !

I'm watching DVB-C TV channel (cablecom) in Switzerland too...

It works perfect with all Nagravision-receivers (Nokia, D-Box, ....), but
you need the official smart-card (with PCMCIA adapter on many receivers - it
cost about Frs. 250.--) to watch TV channels (old FTA too).

These old FTA channels are include in the basic-abo !

The other solluce is: having Dbox or PC (linux or windows) and finding

Regards, Gide_x

I just wanted to know if there are other DVB-C users in Switzerland reading 
this list.

As of today, the main (and almost only) dvb-c broadcaster (Cablecom)
its previously free-to-air channels. Which means that as of today, any dvb-c

receiver without a Nagravision (if I'm not mistaken) descrambler is useless 
in Switzerland.

So, is anyone else here having the same problem as me ? I'm currently trying

to gather information about Nagravision descrambling, but I don't even know 
if Cablecom is willing to make the necessary access card available without 
the official descrambler set-top box (which costs 25 CHF, ~20 USD) per
