I have to agree with your diagnosis as I am not expert on this. It is 
however
even more puzzling how they manage to get all those set-top boxes working
with all those CAM's. I have not got yet any CAM which would not be working
with more recent set-top boxes. I have one very old set-top which indeed has 
problems
with some CAM's.

So how the set-top box people do they stuff? Do they get hints from 
manufacturers
and encryption systems owners how to deal with their quirks? Or are there 
still undisclosed
secrets in this business?
