Hmm, it's not that easy because it ignores the original intention of
this thread. It makes no sense that a CAM budget card is always used to
record a free channel, which makes it impossible to view and/or record
encrypted channels at the same time. A CAM is a valuable resource,
wasting it is obviously a bad idea.
If it's really of general interest to reserve a FF card as long as
possible (it looks this feature was requested to workaround very
specific hardware problems), I'd vote for a new VDR preference setting
to control the device priority, instead of any hardcoded recipe.
