Sorry folks for the confusion: it now works! Encrypted channels on TwinHan
VP 2031!

I had to use 

./ca_zap -c ~/.xine/channels.conf -n "ZDF" -t cab 

(forgot the -n)

works smoothly, I now am gonna try MythTV with it (don't want my girl to be
hackin around in terminal ;-) ).

Great work,

Bas





> Dear Manu,

> I tested if dst_test recognizes my CI module as follows:

------
[root at mediapc dst-utils]# ./dst_test -c
main: Capabilities

APP: Type=[1]
APP: Descrambler keys=[1]
APP: Type=[1]
[root at mediapc dst-utils]# ./dst_test -i

main: Session test

[root at mediapc dst-utils]# ./dst_test -g
main: Get Desc
dst_get_descr: ioctl failed ..
------

Then I tuned to a channel:

----
root at mediapc szap]# ./czap -r -c ~/.xine/channels.conf "ZDF"
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
reading channels from file '/root/.xine/channels.conf'

I then (in another xterm) tried ca_zap as follows:

-----
./ca_zap -c ~/.xine/channels.conf "ZDF" -t cab
Using Adpater=[/dev/dvb/adapter0]
 Frontend=[/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0]
 Demux=[/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0]

Parsing /root/.xine/channels.conf
Cable frontend
Service ID=[3009]
parse_pat: ----------------->parse PAT section
parse_pat: PAT => Section Length=[45], TS ID=[12]
parse_si: PAT: Close Demux /dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0
------

Tried mplayer as follows (this way I can see FTA channels) on an encrypted
channel, without success:

---
[root at mediapc ~]# mplayer - < /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0

So apparently ca_zap is not able to tell my CI module to decrypt the stream
... do I need a very recent version of dvb-apps? Or is my module not
recognized correctly?

Thanks again!
