I can confirm that one. If you look in the backend logs, you will notice 
that the CAM is giving some messages. Apparently the backend is not 
handling those messages too well. When the CAM cannot decrypt, the 
backend should give a message to frontend, and gracefully be ready to 
change channel. It should not keep trying to decrypt, as that will 
certainly fail.



P.S. I am not a coder, willing to test though.
