If it makes any difference, I'm running vdr-1.6.0 with a budget TT-1500-C 
(with Alpha Multicrypt) and a FF TT-2300-C (also with Alpha Multicrypt).
The card failing on this channel is the FF one (other card is tied up 
recording on another transponder)

only seems to be failing with a single channel - other encrypted channels 
within the same boquet work fine....

works:
UKTV;T:674000:C0M64:C:6900:1310+1210:1410=eng:0:606:810:182:8:0

doesn't work:
Sky 
Movies;T:674000:C0M64:C:6900:1301+8190:1401=eng,1501=enm:0:606:801:182:8:0
