Does anyone know how to get the pay channels on this type of receiver?
I would be most grateful if someone could point me in the right direction.

Not sure but have heard a lot of bad vibes around freecom lately.

yes i have, i HIGHLY recommend u DON'T buy this, waste of time. Pay a bit extra and get a quality PCI card

Do u already actually have the Freecom USB adapter, and are just looking for the technical details on how to get the other channels, or have u not bought the adapter yet ?

Unfortunately i already have this device.
Just wondered how it was possible to top it up - when it doesnt have an expansion card????

If you really want Top-Up TV then I have heard it can be done by using a Phoenix card reader along with ProgDVB and the Poor Mans CAM plug in. You will need to install the BDA drivers for the Freecom stick too.

Oh and, of course, you will need a valid paid-up subscription card to put into the reader too.

Are you sure it's worth the effort (especially now that TUTV Anytime is starting)

I have bought one too (quite pricey too) and used it a couple of times and never used it since. A waste of money. Like everyone said who have bought one it is nothing but problem after problem. Mine heats up, I mean gets really HOT :banghead:
