Maybe your CAM needs longer than TS_SCRAMBLING_TIMEOUT (default is 3 seconds)
to start decrypting. You can try increasing that number in device.c.
It is also very likely that I am going to remove the two lines
&& !cDevice::SwitchChannel(1) // ...or the next higher available one...
&& !cDevice::SwitchChannel(-1)) // ...or the next lower available one
from vdr.c, in order to allow switching to a channel where the CAM needs
quite a long time, for instance to collect new keys because it hasn't
been tuned to an encrypted channel for a while.
