It's gone trunk now :-)

I never noticed it had stopped working, but just confirmed that it is
indeed currently working. This is on DVB-T in the UK on Freeview.

IIRC CAM's do work. You can record as many channels as your CAM allows
you (and your hardware limitations). Some CAM's have been reported to
allow only one channels, others have been reported to allow 2 (can't
remember seeing any more than that). If I remember correctly, I think
someone mentioned it doesn't work with any type of local card sharing.
But that may have been related to CAM limitations.

I did try a quick couple of searches to find some references, but I
couldn't find any to back up my memory.
