Ok, will do.

Your CAM doesn't respond to the QUERY that VDR sends to it.
So VDR can't ask the CAM whether it is able to decrypt a certain
channel (in addition to others it is already decrypting).
So it's a hard-/firmware restriction of your CAM.

The only CAM I have here that actually can decrypt more than one
channel is the Alphacrypt with firmware revision 3.09.
