No, it just means that VDR waits until devices with CAMs have
completed setting up the communication with the CAM. Of course, the
driver has to be fully loaded before VDR can access the devices.

I guess it's a matter of coincidence whether or not the driver
will be completely up and running when VDR tries to access the
devices. You should always wait until the driver is ready
before starting VDR.
