Yes, I think that's the expected output if everything but the decryption
stage is working. And unfortunately I'm all out of ideas on what is
missing for your setup to work (as I've said, it works for me without any

Do you know if you need to do something in the CAM menu (e.g. enter a
parental pin or something) to activate the CAM?
