I am curious, no answer, I am the only one who's using Nova-s CI with CAM ?

I add some elements:
my cam is a Matrix one, NCAS programmed (for sky italy NDS Videoguard). 
It works very well when used with a CI receiver.

The message
ERROR: CAM: Read failed: slot 0, tcid 1
appears randomly every 2/6 minutes, and the interruption of the stream 
occurs for a time between 1/2 seconds and 40 seconds.
