Yes, Dragon recently released a version that, at least temporarily, does 
NDS for Italia and UK Sky.

True, but I was thinking that this would isolate the problem to just 
being the CAM interface. However, see below.

Just tried this. No change. However, I'm thinking that something else is 
This should work, right (BBC 1 Yorks is unencrypted)?:

./szap  -c ./channels.conf -a 3 "BBC 1 Yorks"
10788 MHz V | signal 15616 | snr 159c | ber fffffffe | unc fffffffe | LOCK
... (left running)
dd if=/dev/dvb3.dvr0 of=~/1.mpg

It gives 0 byte files. I think I have a different problem. :(

dvbsnoop shows that it can see the PIDs OK and they are unencrypted for 
this channel.
