This was possible in 1.4.x by fixing the CA id to the specific card 
instead of B00. VDR would just try to use the card wihout caring about 
CA stuff (if you had B00 it would not let you access multiple streams).

I'm not sure how the same could be achieved with 1.5.x though.

But in general the implementation in 1.5.x is now much better because 
you can have multiple CAM's of the same type but with different set of 
services on each. It's just that Conax CAMs don't respond to the 
standard way of asking how many streams it can decrypt simultaneosly I 
guess..
