What CAM brand ? What card are you using ?

Anyway, from my experience with my Nova-CI, I couldn't update my SCM
card with vdr. From what I figured out of budget-ci driver, the update
as described by SCM could not work (the driver sends a reset to the
CAM at the beginning of the update procedure.)

I finally sold my SCM CAM and bought an Aston. I has no problem ever

The other possibility is to update your CAM in a regular sat receiver
with a PCMCIA slot.
