    Reciever for Nile sat

    Hi all, Have installed a 1mtr dish on my solarium with the intention of picking up Nile sat, can anyone advise a reciever that will be OK (and available here in Spain), needs to be able to read a showtime card just incase I decide to go down that route in the future. Thanks

    any receiver that is cabable of reading the "irdeto 2" encrytpion will do.
    many generics receivers do this.
    sometime you may have to upload newer "unofficial" software to your receiver to enable it to read the cards - like many installers do with skth sky cards...skys encryption is not available on any generic receivers, unless you "patch" them with special software.
    you can aslo buy a special card reader that fits into a CAM slot on generic receivers.

    many people who offer showtime tend to favour the darkboxes...
