There does not seem to many problems.Cannot comment on what the ci will takes as far as cams concerned.Seems quite expensive maybe because of fixed hardrive.
So i will stick with my cheapy pace.As now it is more stable with latest software update and sees more cams.
If you do a google search for EYCOS Forum That maybe usefull it is German but you can translate.

I wanted a receiver with a hard drive so its good for me.As for price it would cost more due to it has twin tuners init lol.on this (As now it is more stable with latest software update and sees more cams)how can your pace receiver see more cams?if a receiver has ci slots thay must work.have you had troubel with your ci slots in the past then?

Hi satsid
As most stbs are sold as free to air they don`t allow for cams with built in emus.So this makes some cams malfunction.I think there is a euro cam that is seen in most hd stbs which has no problem working and has a card for hd channels till 2010 But is very expensive to buy.The Diablo is very advanced and can emulate most types of encryptions so is an ideal cam for hd stbs.(in my opinion)

Hi
I have been reading about the fortec passion.At the moment its only north american model that does blindscan and 4.22.But with software updates it may be possible on other models.
I have attched a passion manual if anyone wants to read.
