[linux-dvb] Watching/saving encrypted channels

I'm trying to watch encrypted channels. Unfortunately I only have a budget 
card without a CI. Is it possible to use a smart card reader and Hauppauge 
WinTV Nova-T DVB-T PCI card to see encrypted channels, using any software 
decoder that interacts with the smart card? Even saving the encrypted 
stream and then later decrypting it using the software accessing the smart 
card would be acceptable.

If this is not possible, what kind of a system is required? If possible, 
I'd prefer to use Hauppauge cards so that I wouldn't need to fight with 
different cards and drivers. What I've heard they are using Conax 
encryption in Finland.

I'm currently using kernel 2.4.29 with linuxtv-dvb-1.1.1 drivers.
