Hi, After almost a year without TV (the old VDR box died completely and we didn't bother to rebuild it) it's time to watch some Christmas specials and I've tried to resurrect VDR.
I have it all working ok for our FTA cable channels and VDR works as it should there. For the few subscription channels we have a Hauppauge CI and a Conax CAM and a normal "subscription card". This setup worked well for years before the crash to I assume it should work ok now too. During startup I see: CAM 4: module ready CAM 4: Conax 4.00e, 01, 0B00, 04B1 CAM 4: doesn't reply to QUERY - only a single channel can be decrypted Which looks ok to me. Then I also see a few of these pairs: CAM 4: module reset CAM 4: module present Looking into the Setup->CAM menu shows that "CAM 4" is present and is a Conax 4.00. Sometimes I can open the menu for the CAM but usually it fails. When it happens to open and I choose anything from the five entries there nothing ever happens, for some options I see some "Please wait" text and then after a while the menu is closed. So, something isn't right there. After fiddling with the CA descriptor in channels.conf (this isn't really that much documented) I manage to get this: CAM 4: unassigned skipped channels 15..19 The channels 15 to 19 are the encrypted channels. The initial channels.conf I got from "scan" had "1" for the CA field, but reading this: http://www.mail-archive.com/vdr%40linuxtv.org/msg01409.html I see the quote: "Please set the CA parameter of these channels to 0 (FTA) and tune to them again. VDR should automatically insert the correct CA values then." So I set them to "0" and restarted VDR. Now I see that VDR has changed the entries to: SVT1;SVT:146000:C0M128:C:6900:1019:1018;1017:1004:B00:1010:0:1:0 SVT2;SVT:146000:C0M128:C:6900:1029:1028;1027:1004:B00:5030:0:1:0 ie "B00". Could be ok as this seems to be the id of the CAM. Hardcoding "4" there has no effect, and "1" at least makes VDR take a bit longer to decide that "Channel not available". I am not trying to record multiple channels or do anything fancy, just get VDR limping along so that we can watch some live TV the next few days. The setup is: * 2 Hauppauge DVB-c FF cards * Hauppauge CI * Conax 4.x CAM * vdr-1.5.9 (unpatched) I'll do a test with 1.4.7 too, just to make sure. Hang on! Nah, same thing with 1.4.7. Any ideas what could cause this? Best regards and a Merry Christmas, Jan Ekholm -- "You can't trample infidels when you're a tortoise.
