I have a Technotrend S-1500 DVB card:
04:01.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7146 (rev 01)
	Subsystem: Technotrend Systemtechnik GmbH Device 1017
	Control: I/O- Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr-
Stepping- SERR- FastB2B- DisINTx-

<TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR- INTx-
	Latency: 64 (3750ns min, 9500ns max)
	Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 17
	Region 0: Memory at febffc00 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=512]

$ dmesg | grep dvb

I have tried several players. MythTV, MPlayer, Kaffeine. All of them
shows unencrypted channels OK, but will not play any of the encrypted
channels.

This was working fine a couple of months back with the same HW. My
MythTV frontend was broken so I did not use the system. When I tried
again now it is not working as described above.

I have tried to boot an older kernel, and the same problem exists. As
I see it it is probably a HW problem, but what do you think is my
faulty HW? I would prefer not to buy all new (DVB-S card, CI, and
CAM).

Is it possible somehow to find out what is the faulty unit?
