    Default General question re CAMS

    What is the added value of CAMs.
    If a system is unhacked then all you benifit from a CAM is that you can use a sub in various types of boxes, and if a system is hacked then... basically the same benifit, or am I missing something?

    CAM-modules are meant to decode certain coding systems whether it is hack or un-hacked. You need a ****** CAM to decode ****** broadcasts. And if you want to decode Seca broadcasts, you will need a Seca CAM. But keep in mind. It will take more than the correct type of CAM alone to view a coded broadcast. So you will not only need a Seca CAM to view a Seca coded broadcast. You will need a valid smart card too.

    I would like to take the opportunity to correct a very common mistake. It is not the CAM, nor the card that decodes/unscrambles the movie, documentary or whatever it is you are watching. It is the MPEG decoder in your receiver which takes care of that.

    Default Thanks for the answer. Have another one

    How come some providers will include a CAM in their system while others, like Videoguard will not allow it?

    What it is about CAMs that hackers like so much (besides it's mobility) and that some providers find a threat
