I bought the S-1500 too and got the main part working perfectly, but
never got the CI bit to work. Very new to the whole CI thing so not sure
 if i had programmed my dragon cam correctly to work with my
subscription card. Was trying via MythTV but that doesn't have a cam
menu and none of the other apps i tried got the cam menu up either. I
know the cam does boot up to a menu as if i plug it into my usb
programmer i can get into all the cam menus
