Yup (using a C-1500)

I'd suggest you try it again after a reboot or after unloading/reloading 
the budget-ci module, it seems the CAM module was still active after 
Myth had been using it.

Also make sure you use recent drivers from the dvb repo, a patch I wrote 
was committed a day or two ago, and without it, my CAM would lock up by 
simply using a remote control (which would in turn produce lots of 
interesting error messages).
