do you mean that today, Twinhan cards are bug free (or at least some 
issues have been solved by Twinhan) and Aston Pro Cams work with Twinhan 
? The functionnality of MultiService descrambling can be use now ? As 
far as i remember I never could make an aston pro cam work with a 
twinhan card and the abiltiy to descramble up to 12 programs can be a 
great help ...
