[vdr] CAM-CI and multi-channel viewing + slow startup

Hi.

I have just got a TechnoTrend 1500-C budget with CI and Irdeto CAM working
with vdr-1.5.5.

I was hoping to be able to view and record multiple channels in a
boquet/transponder (as I've previously done with a dvb-t card and freeview).
All my channels under dvb-c are encrypted:

Sky 1;T:594000:C0M64:C:XXXX:529:530:0:606:201:182:2:0
Juice 2;T:594000:C0M64:C:XXXX:577:578:0:606:204:182:2:0

When I try and record 1 and watch/record the other I get:


Jul 21 22:37:46 media1 vdr: [5680] record
/media/video/vdr/@J2_-_Our_Kind_of_Music_Press_'i'_for_more_information./200
7-07-21.22.37.50.99.rec
Jul 21 22:37:46 media1 vdr: [5680] info: Recording started
Jul 21 22:37:50 media1 vdr: [5680] switching to channel 1
Jul 21 22:37:51 media1 vdr: [5680] info: Channel not available!
Jul 21 22:37:53 media1 vdr: [5680] switching to channel 2


Is there anything I can do to get this working?

Also - when vdr starts up initially, it takes about 20 seconds before I get
a picture:
