Let me say firstly that I have posted in this section because when I buy a box it will be a DM500S.

1. Am I right in believing that card sharing is like bit torrent, information on peoples cards worldwide are exchanged through a server and then downloaded by peers?

2. Is there any card/hardware requirements to viewing BSkyB for example on one of these boxes?

3. There are some free servers whilst others use pay/private servers which require a "local" card. What is the difference and why not use free servers? Reliability?

4. My plan is to buy a Dreambox 500S is there anything else I need except for a Router/Switch?

Thanks for your time.

I appreciate it.

It's not that I am lazy to look at the tutorials, it's just that I seem to be missing the basic concepts of this system.

1. Sort of. It is indeed a network where memebers share eachother cards.

2. A server with sky uk card would be very handy, but not any hardware requirements.

3. Never, never never use a pay server! Cardsharing is free!

4. A local card may get you share servers more ec, but is not needed in the free share sections.

Let me answer in order of your questions..

1. Not quite... There is no server. You will make your own contacts and the peers are added statically. Although a bittorrent idea could be an interesting concept. You are only getting keys, which is not much bandwidth.

2. You should be ok, but sometimes BSkyB cards can cause problems. They're probably one of the hardest cards to get working.

3. It's a question of finding peers. If you have a local card you will find more peers. A lot of people feel that you shouldn't get something for nothing. If you pay for a subscription to someone like Sky, then that will give you access to programming like the Discoverey channel or Sky 1. These same programming types you would find on something like Digital +. There is the Discovery channel and Fox which comes with the same type of programming, but at different times. Thus you're already paying for it, it's just you have more choice as to when you want to watch it, or in what language.

However, others are happy to share what they have with anyone, that is their choice, but has more obvious moral questions.

Pay servers are not acceptable on this forum as this is obviously immoral. Why should a thirdparty make money on programming without feeding money back to the programme makers? Also, these are the kind of servers that are more likely to be investigated by police. You don't want your D Line of C/F line to appear in one of their lists.

Anyone found to be a pay server is dealt with here with an immediate ban.

4. No, that should be fine. It's a bit underpowered, and doesn't have an HD for recording, but it's good enough for CS. For about £200 you could build yourself something based on a media pc.


Gentoo Linux - Nexus-s, Linux VDR - 2 x ATSC HD cards, Hauppauge PVR 500 for analog US Cable, 3 x Hauppauge MVP's running Vomp on VDR, UK TV on IPTV.

Not a single sat dish at the moment. :-(

Thanks for the answers guys.

There wasn't much in the way of info on my traditional Sat sites, so I searched and found here.

I suppose the next step is to buy a box.

Thanks again.
