Unlikely. Webcamd needs to get support for the CAM part.

I have this on my to-buy list, when I get time to take care about my  
PC based TV setup:
   TechnoTrend S 2 3650 CI USB
It's a DVB-S2 USB device with a CAM slot.

The DVB part is similar to something which is known to work but comes  
without the CAM part.
