Always when I turn on TV the first time after a reboot or restart of the TV server I get an "Channel is scrambled". The second try always works.

    I would like to 2nd this. I have this problem very often. Now if I start with unscrambled channel then it works. Also I had to put CAM limit to 0 as levaing it to 2 (as before) would:mad: result in no card available!

    I have this after I have start up my computer after a complete shut down, when wake up after S3 hybernation this doesnt happen. Looks like the Tv card is not started yet or the CAM is not initilized or something.

    Yes it is probably related to how MP handles the initialization/start of Card/CAM. In RC2 latest SVN I do not have this problem, so I had to fall back to this version. In RC4 i get "Unkown Error".
