I've been posting a lot of messages lately about problems I'm having
getting my TechnoTrend Budget 1500/CI (dvb-c) and Irdeto CAM working, on
both this and the linux-dvb lists.

-VDR flip-flops the CAM between ready/present
-kernel messages "dvb_ca adapter 0: DVB CAM detected and initialised
successfully" repeat over and over
-'gnutv -cammenu' reports "en50221_tl_poll: CAWrite failed" and
"en50221_stdcam_llci_poll: Error reported by stack:-2"

My question is, can anyone suggest any other tools which test CAMs?
Also, I don't really understand how the CAM is accessed - can anyone point
me in the right direction?
