I am trying to get my CA stuff working. I have a TT1500 with CA
adapter. I use an Irdeto cam.

I have tried just about everything now, with the same results. gnutv
and zap both give me this:

Using frontend "ST STV0299 DVB-S", type DVB-S
status SCVYL | signal ac80 | snr c4f8 | ber 00000000 | unc 00000000 |
en50221_tl_poll: CAWrite failed
en50221_stdcam_llci_poll: Error reported by stack:-2
<-this is where it hangs, and i press ctrl+c->
en50221_stdcam_llci_poll: Error reported by stack:-1

This happens on every channel, also ones that are not encrypted.

adding "-out file test.ts" works on what I have tested on Hotbird, but
my card is for Showtime channels on Nilesat (7W). On Nilesat it seems
that all the output I get is PAT, PMT or some other table, as the
output is repetitive over a small ammount of data.

I have downloaded the latest dvb-apps and the latest v4l-dvb drivers.
I had to change suspend.h to freezer.h in dvb_frontend.c to get it to
work, but it seems to work nicely now.

I get a new line exacly like the last one every time i use zap or gnutv.
If there is any debug output I can enable somehow, or anything like
that,, I would love to try it.
