Pairing is done between smartcard and CAM. Even after pairing you can move 
card+CAM combo from system to another. CI+ CAM does work on CI slot, but 
depending on your operators settings the CAM might require a CI+ slot to 
decrypt. Requirement for CI+ slot is something that can be selected on channel 

I have seen CI+ slots only available on Television sets and set top boxes. Not 
on VDR hardware.

On my provider all HD channels and some of the SD channels are "CI+" only while 
most of the crypted SD channels are allowed to be decrypted with CI+CAM combo.
