Actually VDR is supposed to avoid devices with CI for FTA recordings:

   imp <<= 1; imp |= NumUsableSlots ? 0 : device[i]->HasCi(); // avoid cards with Common Interface for FTA channels

If this doesn't work on your system, you may want to debug the function

   cDevice::GetDevice(const cChannel *Channel, int Priority, bool LiveView)

to see why it selects sich a device when it shouldn't.
