Ok, that is good to know.

I think so. When using the board without the cam inserted I got non-zero
length mpeg-files, but since all channels are encrypted over here, I get
no decent output. The file is not playable with mplayer for instance.

With the cam I still get al lock with czap, but all files are zero

I have a overview of all steps and commands I have tried written down in
this post:

If there are things I need to try or debugging that needs to be done,
please let me know. I'm out of options at the moment, however. I don't
know how to enable more (debug)logging to investigate further.
