No, not really

This is the card I use together with MythTV and a AlphaCrypt CAM module. 
It works fine, provided that a recent version of MythTV is used (there 
were a number of patches applied during the last month, some of which I 
wrote, which improved the AlphaCrypt support alot).

Do you know which crypto system your provider uses? (it will be 
important for your choice of CAM module)
