  Yes, sorry I forgot to mention that everything must be on the same 
transponder.  It is rare, but the situation can occur.  Also, I can not take the 
credit for this work.  It was posted on one of the forums I frequently browse. 
I just felt that it was odd for vdr to presume that multiple channels on the 
same transponder, which are decrypted by the same caid, can be handled by the 
same card.  Perhaps it it true in other systems.
