This is correct. Having information about how an original Canal+ card
operates internally (keys etc.) it should not be very difficult to
implement a PC soloution. It nowhere as difficult as emulating a SKY card,
that uses an ASIC that may not be emulated in software.
There is apparantly nothing revolutionary about the new Canal+ cards.

This is more difficult as anybody with just a little knowledge in
8086 assembler would be able to disassemble the program to find
out how the keys are actually stored.
Some of the microcontrollers used in pirate cards are much more
secure as these prevents users from reading the program and in addition
stores the keys in encrypted form.
And a few words about thee availability of keys:
The biggest problem for the program providers is, that the equipment
to make pirate cards are so cheap and simple. This also becomes a
problem for us, who are mainly interested in the technology behind the
encryption, because the companies are forced to take action.
They can live with a small number of technically interested
people watching their programs for free but when the pirate card business
becomes too wide spread they must act.
As I see it, the biggest threat to out "hobby" is all the people making
money out out of it by selling cheap pirate cards to each and everyone.
If it required just a little knowledge to get going, the number of
pirate viewers would be dramatically reduced.
This is why it's not necessarily a bad thing, that new codes may not
be released to the public but will be kept among those showing real
interest in the subject.
This will of course hit upon all the "please send me the new keys"
people, but I can live with that :)

Yes, TV2 will be showing season 5, starting beginning of '98.
The TV2 presenter said just before they showed the season 4 cliffhanger
that it was part of a triology.

MR> Thankyou Marc.
it seems that the X-files on TV 2 on the usual Thursday evening spot are
currently interrupted because of important sport events.
The X-files on TV 2 on Thursday seem to be the television premiere in
Continental Europe, although all these episodes had, of course, been aired
on SKY ONE last summer (May/June as far as I recall).
Thusly, TV 2 is considerably ahead of Pro 7 in Germany.
However, you can still watch the X-files on Thursday evening,
if you have a d-Box (as I presume), put in the new software with bdm
and get yourself a (free) dutch viewing card.
Veronica TV on 12441 is currently showing X-files at 20:30 CET every
Thursday. They are, however, well behind Pro 7.
And then, of course, there's SKY from London with X-files on Sunday night.
These are repeats.
Finally, it's nice to watch old episodes of the X-files on TV.
That is on Mondau night, after the Midnight News.
I program my VCR for that ;)
I like TV 2. It's a nice station, and in comparison to SKY, it has real
people on screen who introduce you to the programs. There's far less
advertising on TV 2 than on SKY, although I liked it even better when
TV 2 had no commercials at all (within the programmes)
BTW: Thanx for your excellent column in TSI.
