Interesting idea to use dvbloop for viewing scrambled TS recordings! As
I do not have much experience with the CA system in Linux-DVB,
please give me a few days to check whether and how this could be done.
Thanks for kind invitation to host dvbloop. It seems that my apache does
not like working 24h a day ;-).
From now on, I'll keep an eye on it. However, if problems continue, I
may come back to your offer so that
we've sort of a mirror for dvbloop.
