This sounds good, at least it would fix this for me.

In the meantime I modified for-loop in cDevice::GetDevice() to:

	for (int i = numDevices-1; i >= 0; i--)

My full-card (with CI) is the first device, followed by 2 budget cards
(non-CI). Now budget cards will be selected if they are free and can
receive the channel.

You should consider this as a (very) temporary solution, which may or
may not help you (depending on the order of DVB cards in your system).
For the real fix, wait for what Klaus has to say...
