I'm running vdr 1.3.31 with a Cinery DVB-C 1200 card. Everything has 
been working fine: I've been able to watch FTA channels with no problems.

Last week I was subscribing to PayTV and therefore I installed the 
CineView CI (http://www.knc1.com/gb.htm) with the CAM AlphaCrypt Light. 
Free To All television is working until I plug in the CAM. After that I 
don't get any more data and I can't watch anything until the next reboot.
The smartcard that I'm using has not been activated yet (wanted to do 
this but didn't work as everything else :-()
BTW: Accessing the CAM menu and viewing informations about the smartcard 
is possible so I don't think the CAM is damaged.

This what the kernel says:

Linux video capture interface: v1.00
saa7146: register extension 'budget dvb /w video in'.
PCI: Found IRQ 5 for device 0000:00:0a.0
saa7146: found saa7146 @ mem f0920000 (revision 1, irq 5) (0x153b,0x1156).
DVB: registering new adapter (Terratec Cinergy 1200 DVB-C).
adapter failed MAC signature check
encoded MAC from EEPROM was 
Obudget-av: ci interface initialised.
KNC1-0: MAC addr = 00:0a:ac:01:e0:fc
DVB: registering frontend 0 (Philips TDA10021 DVB-C)...

...vdr's output:

VDR version 1.3.31 started
vdr[2682]: loading plugins [..skipped..]

kernel: dvb_ca adapter 0: DVB CAM detected and initialised successfully
