    Hi all,

    I have been watching SD and HD in my multiseat environment relatively ok, with some stuttering on HD and HD+.
    Since I wanted to address my stuttering I was putting a new active Intel Server GigE PCIe card into my server, to offload streaming from my CPU to the PCIe card.

    When I am now tuning to an HD+ channel I suddently started getting the warning message "can not play stream2.0" or similar in german language.
    Sometimes my MP client also just blacks out.

    Manual control in TVServer just shows timeshifting is doing fine. When I try to play the ts file with vlc it is just a black screen, with Windows Media Player Playback of that file (black screen as well) stops after 2s.

    My tvserver.log shows nothing unusal, same as tswriter and streaming server.
    On the client side, however, I am seeing continous

    This typically is a sign that the CAM is actually not decrypting. I tried the HD+ Smartcard in my Humax reciever and it did work there!
    I also sometimes see messages like:

    This is on all clients, and I changed nothing from yesterday's working config to today except the mentioned Ethernet card.

    I currently tend to think the latent decryption problem and the change of my GigE card just happened at the same day by coincidence, but I actually can't really analyze any further.

    So, my question to the community:
    Did anybody else also started to see these issues with HD+ today?
    Can I analyze the issue any further?

    I attach logs, maybe somebody can look at this and sees more than I do?

    Many thanks,
