Hi Jan, I have the same problem with my C-2300 card and TechniCrypt CX
(CAM). After several days of testing different kernels and drivers I tried
it somewhere in Windows and found that it's not working there as well. Maybe
some HW incompatibility... The CAM I have is the only one provided and
supported by my cable operator so I had to get another card. C-1501 is
functional for me and even cheaper.
