Description

Hi there,

with some encrypted CABLE channels I'm getting always the error message "Invalid start code" .
The problem only occurs on encrypted channels.

Setting I am using: OSCam r11573 with HTS Tvheadend 4.3-1857 on Ubuntu Server 16.04 with the Kernel 4.15.0-60-generic.

Tvheadend Log (Cable):

The problem came out of nowhere.
I do have this problem only with CABLE Channels.
I also do have a SAT Card and there the problem doesn't occur.

Only time I've seen invalid start code is when channels are 'double encrypted' or corrupted.

Thank's for the reply.
Do you know how I can check for double encryption?
Can you pleased specify what do you mean with corrupted? Like bad signal?

Thank you in advance
