I have a Hauppauge WinTV Nova-S-CI that works with the original foxtel
'analogue'. You need to purchase an Irdeto cam and have a valid
subscriber smart card.
So far I'm not aware of anyone decoding the foxtel digital stream as
the NDS crypto they use is not public and no aftermarket cam is
The card itself is good. I'm still having a few problems though that
are either driver or cam related causing problems with descrambling
after a few days. Also the card and cam combination is kinda
expensive, I think it was around $400-$500 by the time I bought all
the bits.
