Thanks - got the SymbolRate from my provider, and I now have a
channels.conf file.

Problem is now I get a "channel not available" whenever I tune - although
this might be because the CI/CAM currently isn't attached.

On that subject, with the CAM attached, should I be able to see something
in the 'CAM' menu on vdr-1.5.1 ?  I tried this yesterday, but nothing came
up?  The CI/CAM is being discovered by udev etc.

vdr-1.5.1, TT-1500 Budget (SAA7146), CI and Irdeto CAM
