I'm pretty sure that the CAM will resume descrambling when the data
comes back. (Marc, can you confirm ?)

After all, I remember that I was able to decode a channel for which I
did not send a CA_PMT: the CA_PMT I sent for the previous transponder
was the same for the new transponder I tuned to. And the CAM happily
descrambled a new program on the new transponder. 

Of course this may be an SCM bug, one never knows
