In VDR version 1.4 the CA_PMT records (that's the data a CAM needs in
order to know which PIDs it shall decrypt) are sent to all CAMs in
one CI device. I know that this can be a problem, and that's why I'm
going to address this first thing in the upcoming 1.5 developer

Sorry, but at the moment I guess turning off the CAM messages is
all you can do.
