    hi i wanted to know why is smart card necessary for setup boxes in Indian.because those provided by local cable operators require them while those provided by dordarshan doesnt requires them.

    Is there any site/link which guides to use setup boxes without smart card.I know i may be illegal but can anyboy pm the links.

    or any other alternatives

    That card is like a sim for your set top box. If DD Direct+ set top box do not have cards then in that case the ID would be embedded in the set top box or it will support only free to air channels.
