The PC-Decoder Interface sometimes called the Season Interface is the most valuable of enthusiast tools - for many years hackers and software writers have used them to develop emulation software for satellite TV channels.
How does it work?
It communicates data between a PC and the Smart card reader of your device (Satellite receiver, cable recevier, CAM, Smartcard reader etc.
This particular model is low energy and can be converted to a Logger* - simply by adding a card reader - like one found in a CAM or satellite receiver - Also known as the Season interface use with software like wincardemu
WCE (Windows card emulator) is one of the most popular PC-Decoder interface programs
and the software emulates many real / official cards
the last WCE is 1.59 (released March 2007)
the notes of which read
Added ability to update AES keys from internet.
2 different formats of host response is supported..
When key 'g' is pressed, the external file AESHOST.TXT
is parsed for host name (must be on line 1) and the request data
used to get the key for that particular host.
Two sample files, AESHOST1.TXT and AESHOST2.TXT (working at time of publication)
is included, just copy any of them to AESHOST.TXT and then start WCE..
(and yes, the blank line(s) at the bottom is required)..
you can of course change the file to use on the fly..
the file is only opened and read/parsed when you press key 'g'.
To update the key, press key 'g' and hopefully you get the current AES key.
If it works, great, if not...then just delete it ;-)

***** What to do next *****
To impliment these files just
Copy and paste all the files to your WCE folder
then run WCE as normal.

* A Logger is a smart card reader attached to your PC-Decoder interface - the smart card reader reads data from a Smart card allowing the data to be analysed on a PC code words passed by the Smart card to the smart card reader and requests made by the smart card reader to the card are "Logged" usually in a txt file this data can then be analysed to find out what messages are being asked and what answers are being given - In laymens terms it's like an eavesdropping device - which allows the user to listen in the information used can then be copied and cloned etc. etc
