Would it be easy to check FE_CAN_QAM_256 in vdr before trying to use a device to tune to a particular channel? In such a case I could deactivate FE_CAN_QAM_256 in the drivers. I am using VDR 1.7.9, if it makes a difference.

> Actually now that I think of it... How about separating the explicit card selection and conditional access by introducing a new paremeter in the channels.conf that could be used to preselect the card(s) that can tune to the selected channel?
Is this not related to the sourcecap patch?
