Here is what dmesg says at boot when the CAM is in. I don't have
physical access to the machine, so it is not easy for me to do an
insert/eject.

erik at dvr:~$ dmesg | egrep -i 'dvb|saa'

The interrupt is shared:

And for completness:
$ lspci -v | grep -A 2 -B 1 Technotrend

        Memory at 32004800 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=512]

I guess my question is: is there a chance to get the PowerCam.Pro
module to work in a reasonable amount of time? Or am I better off
trying to get the AstonCrypt module?

Guillaume.
