Hey Gavin,

I saw your post re encrypted Freeview channels. I have an Avermedia 771 
DVB-T card under Fedora. Is a 'CAM' something I can plug in in addition to 
the AverMedia ? Or does it require a 'ACM' enabled DVB card in the first 
place ?

Hi :)

Yep they're using MediaGuard 7.6 (more popularly known as "SECA 2") and 
you can either use their own CAM for £40, or any other SECA 2-compatible 

I haven't personally used one with Linux but there's zero reason why it 
shouldn't work.

It's £7.99 a month, but just be aware that you only get 4 channels extra 
at any one time - they share time slots so e.g. you won't get any 
cartoons after 6pm etc. :)
