This "locking" thing is not the right way to go.
It's probably better to modify the CAM handling, so that it only sets
one audio PID for broken CAMs that are unable to decrypt several audio
PIDs simultaneously.

Is there perhaps a newer firmware available for your CAM?
I have three different CAMs here, and they all can decrypt several
audio PIDs (plus Dolby Digital) at the same time.
