I would advice to buy a 9600S, which is available now. The common
interface includes VIACCESS and in the module is the card-slot. We are
running here this new receiver (s/w CI.1.01) in a test and until now, we
feel its the best money can buy (mavbe tomorrow someone else will come
with even a better one...). no problem with packages, scpc and
pid-codes, since this receiver searches for right codes. If you know
them, then seaching goes much faster. No difficult "red menu" is need. A
fine solution is the choice to switch between different soundcarriers
(international broadcasters).
A full story on the 9600S will be published in the january-issue of
TELE-satellite International and we will compare  the Bakker 4.0 (a
converted Nokia from the Netherlands) with the 9600S in my next show of
drdish@tv. Sorry, Israel is a little bit of reach for the
