I can't help much since I don't use DVB-C nor do I use a CAM, but I
know from bug reports that several people do use DVB-C with a CAM
successfully in MythTV. But this isn't the most robust code in MythTV,
we've just imported the CAM support from the "DVR" application.

The people who do use CAM successfully use one of the PCI cards with
a CAM slot in it. MythTV actively tries to avoid supporting softcams
and USB CAMs since they can so easily be abused.
