I have in a Gentoo system, a Hauppauge Nexus-S card (FF card), which is
used with vdr 1.4.6 (media-video/vdr-1.4.6) and with firmware version 1
(media-tv/linuxtv-dvb-firmware-1) and dvb lib 0.5.5.1
(media-libs/libdvb-0.5.5.1-r3). De kernel is 2.6.23-gentoo-r3. In this
configuration, I can recieve the FTA channels as defined in the default
When a connect a 3.5 inch Hauppauge CI module
(http://www.linuxtv.org/vdrwiki/index.php/Common_interface with white
front panel, http://www.hauppauge.com/html/dvb_s.htm, bottom of page) to
the Hauppauge Nexus card, I can no longer recieve the FTA channels (no
image, no sound, no EPG, no new descriptors, no timeout on a choosen
channel). It does not matter if a insert a CAM (Alphacrypt) or not. I
don't have a working smartcard right now, so I did not test that.
If I do insert the CAM, in the log file, the message is found:
Dec 8 11:33:39 vdr_gentoo vdr:  warning: Resetting CAM...
Dec 8 11:33:42 vdr_gentoo vdr:  info: CAM has been reset
The LED on the CAM is on as well, so it has power, but still no FTA
On the mailing list was this:
looks familiar, with one difference: In that email, nothing was stated
about the FTA channels.
My question is: When I have a CI module connected to the Nexus card,
should I then still be able to see the FTA channels ?
