Not really. The side effect that osdteletext will force recordings on 
the FF card on the same transponder was caused by the change in 1.4.1-2, 
that was some time before your post. Its going back to the "[vdr] 
device.c: cDevice::GetDevice" topic from syrius.ml.

The topic did some twists and ended at bandwidth issues on transfer 
mode, and I was investigating why at all the recording starts on the 
(CAM-capable) FF card instead of the (free-only) budget card.

What if the FF card is the only one with the CAM?
