    Wifes DVBS channels gone dark - need help with alternative HD PVR?

    I have 4 DVB tuners for UK terrestrial and 2 DVBS2 tuners to pull in French TV from a couple of satellites for my wife, but after many years they have now encrypted the French channels on the 5W and 13E sats - or not necessarily encrypted but they now show as the attached picture on king of sat - I believe they are now multi streams whatever they are. It's possible one of the TBS card might pull in the multi streams but I suspect getting it to work with NPVR might be a different story.

    TBS6903 is a Professional level digital satellite TV Tuner card with PCI Express interface. TBS6903 supports not only normal DVB-S2/DVB-S QPSK, 8PSK which is supported by normal satellite receivers, but also CCM, ACM, VCM, 16APSK, 32APSK, Multiple Transport Stream, Multiple Generic Stream, Combined Single Generic &Single TS, which most satellite receiving devices canít support. With use of dedicated TBS tools, those special streams can be captured. The two advanced DVB-S2/S tuners enable you to watch TV channel from one satellite transponder, while recording channels from different satellite transponders from another tuner at the same time.

    I'm looking into alternatives and will research this "multi stream" thing - but the most secure route is probably to buy a French sat box when I'm over there at christmas and then add a capture device to the PC.

    I've looked at Collossus, HDPVR etc... but don't really know what I'm getting into.....

    Ideally I want - to capture hdmi output of sat box for live TV and recordings on my NPVR server and watch on Kodi clients & have npvr change channels which I assume means blasting?

    Do I need to worry about copy protection over HDMI?

    low profile PCIe would be best but USB would work.

    What are my options/pitfalls?

    One option I hadn't thought of is a french CAM and Card, does NPVR support any tuners with CAM slots or seperate CAM solutions?

    Maybe they consider that feature after looking at this old list?
