I use a TT-2300-C, CI and Alpha Multicrypt  and a TT-1500-C, CI and second 
Alpha Multicrypt under vdr-1.6.0.

To be honest, I think the budget card is better.  The FF 2300 doesn't 
reliable do multiple decrypt, and I'm currently getting some weird problems 
where the card will decrypt some and not all channels in the same boquet. 
This might be to do with the CI or CAM, but right now I'm wishing I'd bought 
2 budget cards!!  At least I'd be able to support HD on both!
