CI+ module and TV pairing/marriage/binding


New member
Hello all,

The satellite TV service providers in my country provide CI+ module only to be used with certain "compatible" TV manufacturers. According to customer service representative the module is paired with the TV and cannot be used with any other device (even if it is the exact same model of these "compatible" TV manufacturers).

My question: is this indeed an imposed technical limitation or they are not providing the CI+ CAM to other manufacturers for commercial purposes? Can I expect the CI+ CAM to work with other brands (with CI+ slot)?
