Looks like the CAM is recognized all right.

Please enable the lines

static bool DumpTPDUDataTransfer = false;
static bool DebugProtocol = false;
static bool DumpPolls = false;
static bool DumpDateTime = false;

in ci.c by changing them to 'true' and compile/run VDR again, redirecting
stderr into a file, as in

  ./vdr 2> ci.txt

Then send me the resulting output after trying to switch to an encrypted
channel.

This would require additional information in cDevice::GetDevice() to see whether
the device has CA capabilities. Until now this is implicitly done by avoiding
full featured cards, but since budget cards also can have CAMs I'll add an
appropriate check for this to the cDevice class.
