I recently added a third budget card to my VDR which contained 2 budgets
pointing at Astra so far (using softdevice for decoding):
00:0a.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7146 (rev 01)
00:0f.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7146 (rev 01)
00:0a.0 Class 0480: 1131:7146 (rev 01)
00:0f.0 Class 0480: 1131:7146 (rev 01)
DVB: registering new adapter (Fujitsu Siemens Activy Budget-S PCI (rev
DVB: registering new adapter (TT-Budget/WinTV-NOVA-CI PCI).
During my first runs I had connected the third LNB to one of the budgets
by just moving one sat cable to the new LNB. I could watch all channels
from Astra and Hotbird O.K. The SkyStar2 was not connected so far.
Now adding the SkyStar2 card:
00:0b.0 Class 0280: 13d0:2103 (rev 01)
00:0b.0 Network controller: Techsan Electronics Co Ltd B2C2 FlexCopII DVB
chip / Technisat SkyStar2 DVB card (rev 01)
DVB: registering new adapter (FlexCop Digital TV device).
This card is connected to a LNB pointing at Hotbird. dvbscan shows all the
channels on the respecive cards just fine. I generated the channels.conf
listing using dvbscan.
But from then on, I could either see the Astra channels or the Hotbird
channels within VDR, never both sets at the same time. It appears as
if only card #0 is active (the Activy card), no matter which LNB is
connected to which budget card.
What am I missing? As far as I know there is no way (and no point)
in telling VDR to use cards #0 and #1 for Astra and #2 for Hotbird. Is
that a known problem between (certain versions of) budget/-ci and b2c2
cards / drivers?

Any hint is appreciated!
You ca edit the CA field using the onscreen editopr to specify a card or you
can ise the SourceCaps patch. i use both on occasion.
