I have a little problem with a samsung dsr9500 via ci tuner.When there is a cam modul inserted the signal drops just enough to cause a problem with the weaker signal channels on astra and hotbird,more so with a magic cam.I have tried 2 other samsungs with the same results.I have tried the cam in a topfield 3000 with no problem.Does any one out have any ideas what the trouble could be or is the samsung just junk.
Thanks in advance.

Hi paunygaa,

Can't say that I've heard anyone say that the Samsung is junk, nor have I heard anyone mention this problem before, I would also guess that the Samsung equipment can be seen under different names.

I can offer no real explanation for this behaviour, my initial thoughts would be on power supply, but I don't believe that the CAM would draw a huge amount of power, if you have the facility, try disabling the inbuilt CAM and see if that majkes a difference.

Failing that, it could be a software problem and it may be worth seeing if there is an update available on the samsung site.
