Unfortunately my cable provider has decided to encrypt almost
everything, including channels which are provided as unencrypted
analog at the same time.

I do wish soft cam would be officially included. With the hardware
cam, I need 2 smart cards in order to watch one channel and record
another. This is a rather expensive way to get the same functionality
analog provides for free.
