OK, sorry for the noise. Finally, the PowerCAM.Pro works fine. I guess
it was not plugged in properly or something. After taking it out and
putting it back in, it works, with no software modification. I can see
encrypted channels fine with kaffeine. Now if I could get MythTV to
work... But that's another story for another mailing list :)

I can update the wiki page
http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/TechnoTrend_TT-budget_S-1500. My
concern is I do not know what version of the CI is in the machine and
I do not have physical access to it. Can I tell from the logs/dmesg?

Guillaume.
