There is an optional Common Interface CAM module for certain program providers, but Dish Network doesn't authorize it. DTV's equipment is not compatible with the DVB standard, so the card would not work with that provider anyway.
Dish does broadcast some test channels FTA occasionally and the card will receive those.
That card is very much like the budget WinTV-DVB Nova-S card. It differs from the WinTV-DVBs by not having an on-board hardware MPEG2 decoder or CI option. It uses a version of WinDVD for software MPEG2 decode. It's one advantage is it's ability to send the entire transport stream over the PCI bus.
