The backend system uses two FireDTV cards with separate Alphacrypt CI
modules with a smartcard each.
I will setup a seperate test system with just a single FireDTV card to
try and find out why it does not work with MythTV.
With gnutv I don't have to setup anything, just give it the channel
name, adapter number, recording time and name of the output file and
away it goes.
Myth logs the start of the recording but never stores a single byte.
