Hello list,

I'm trying to get my CAM working on vdr 1.3.22  and vdr 1.2.6, with only 
the vdr-remote-0.3.3 plugin  (http://endriss.escape.bei.t-online.de/vdr) 
I've got a Hauppauge CI module 
( connected to 
the second Hauppauge Nexus card 
Accoording to the Wiki 
(http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Supported_CAM_modules) this 
configuration should support all cam's.  I've tried 3 different CAM's, 
without success. The CAM's get hot, so they've got power,  but further 
no results. When I use the Setup menu in vdr (both versions), I can 
reset the CAM's, the log shows that that is done, but when I triy to 
access the CAM menu, vdr report "Can't acces CAM menu".

The question is : What should I see in the log and on screen when I got 
a working CAM ?

    Best regards,
