There is no such device. You allways need a valid card to watch digtial pay
tv. With one exception: if you live inside the ASTRA-footage, you could use
your IRD 520 with the old version 2.1 of the iredeto-module to watch the
dutch pay-tv channels (MultiChoice) free of charge (see my news of last friday).
