Thanks for the responses. I've found a Conax CAM on ebay thats fairly
cheap and says it does Irdeto. If this CAM also fails I'll think about
whether to get a freecammed 1.06
(https://www.hotchip.com.au/OnlineStore/ProductDetail.asp?ProductID=61)
or a new card. Do either of you have a recommendation of a card that is
most likely to work if it comes to it (Not a guarantee, just a best
guess ;))

Cheers,
Dave.
