[vdr] 'Fake' FTA channels impossible to tune

VDR doesn't let you switch to a channel that you cannot decrypt. I 
usually like this feature, so I won't switch to a channel I cannot see, 
but today some channels at 28.5E are FTA (a sky promotion or a technical 
glitch?), even if they have a caid!=0, so I had to modify 
cDvbDevice::ProvidesCa to alway return true. I know that sky's to blame 
(or maybe they just don't want to advertise their channels as FTA), but 
maybe it should be a configurable option.
