Since VDR 1.3 series (released about 3-5 years ago I think), VDR updates 
the ca field of channels.conf entry automatically. However, value "1" 
has a special meaning to VDR. It will force the use of DVB card 1 to 
receive the channel, and will not update the ca field to its proper value.

However, scan defaults to setting ca value to 1 on encrypted channels, 
which does not make sense.

The attached patch adds a new default value "-1" to "-x" parameter and 
sets vdr default version to "3" instead of the now obsolete "2". With 
the new value "-1" scan will set ca field of all channels to "0" and let 
VDR update the field properly.
