I didn't have any timers right now, so I could do some timing. The times
between "VDR version 1.3.23 started" and "CAM: Conax ..." were: 56, 66,
66, 67, 67, 67 and 68 seconds (in the same order). Weirdly regular
times, but cannot (shouldn't) be CPU related as there's lots of idle on
the CPU.

Well, it isn't *THAT* long time, but still feels a lot longer as you
know it *COULD* detect Conax right away, and you know you're missing
something on live-tv or on recording...

If I knew what does make driver detect the Conax card, then I could hack
my VDR to do that on a startup...
