I have just bought a new Samsung 8000 series Smart TV. It has a common interface card slot which I understand to be for a CI or CI+ card from my local cable service provider. Do I use my smartview card in this device, or do I need a special card?
Cable services in the UK can only be accessed via the STB provided by Virgin Media.
