Question Kaffeine DVB and paytv

Is there a possibility to watch encrypted DVB stations using a smartcard and common interface with Kaffeine?

If not, is there any other way like cardsharing to do so?

I think under vdr it is possible......

Thanks for answers, cu

Since 0.8.2beta1, Kaffeine supports ci/cam.
Just insert your smartcard in the cam, and zap to your paytv channels.

Well, unfortunately not at my kaffeine 0.8.5. Maybe is there a special setting for it I've overlooked? Or kaffeine doesnt support ci/cam for DVB-c-cards? Or it depends on the dvb-card: if FF or budget? :/

Running Slackware 12 here, in the UK with a Dragon/T.REX CI and CAM combo for Sky TV. Kaffeine only decodes the free-to-view channels, and completely ignores the CAM in the CI. I double click any of them, and I just get a black screen.

I'm stuck with MythTV which whilst it is a fine solution, I really don't want to record EVERYTHING I watch, just wasted wear and tear on my disks.

I was thinking of trying to set up a cardsharing solution on my local box (using my legit card) and getting Kaffeine to utilise that, but I haven't gotten around to investigating that yet.

Any help with the Kaffeine/encryption issue would be most welcomed!
