Real Card? - and some misc questions - 16-July-2008, 17:01

heya all,
new to the forum and glad that it exists as it looks like it's going to have all the information I need. I've been doing some research and reading up on satellite boxes in general and have just about decided on the dm800 but wanted to ask a few questions before buying.

* the dm800 seems to be the best bet for card sharing / flexibility and HD sats. is that generally considered to be the case? Are there any others that offer the same functionality and support but are cheaper?
* does anyone have a definite date on the dm8000 at this point? I know there are a trillion threads on it all over the net so forgive for not trawling all of them to try and find out if someone does have an official date. Can someone explain to me what the differences in feature set between the 800 and 8000 would typically be used for? ie i get the impression the 8000 would be more for doing simultaneous watching and recording.
* I'm a linux developer so I'm not phased by very low level information (in fact I hope to contribute back to some of the projects) but it seems hard to get hold of. Can someone link me some info on precisely how card sharing works? I assume that it is as simple as sharing an encryption key, generated off a legitimate card to a bunch of other receivers over the net via a published, password protected http get or similar. Equally this seems to be very vulnerable to various law enforcement agencies as you are all using your real IPs. Is this not a problem?
* one thing that continues to baffle me is the reference to real cards. I get it that you need a card of some kind to receive a paid for service, but in the case of card sharing do you still need to buy a physical card ? Can you not just get the shared encryption keys and you're done ?
* what image would people recommend for HD card sharing. Does it vary depending on what particular chans you wish to view or is there a generally regarded best of around? gemini?
* what satellite would I likely have if the house used to have a sky sat connection but doesn't any longer? I believe from my reading it will be sufficient for most chans but is there an easy way to tell precisely what model etc it is?
I realise that some of the above information is in the forums, but i did do some searches and couldn't really find the info I was after, or was sent to a bazillion download sites that all required more damn accounts that I just couldn't be bothered with.

thanks for any info.
