Hitting CAM reset on the CI menu will bring it back "online". Naturally all Conax channel recordings will fail silently as a result of this until the CAM has been brought back up. Switching to an encrypted channel just gives the standard "channel not available" message.

Wouldn't it be better to fix the actual problem and prevent
the CAM from "disappearing"?
