CI support for Twinhan is a work in progress. The HW is completely
different from other dvb card so current application will *not* work
with the future high level CI API. 

Currently, the high level CI driver is still in experimental stage (in
twinhan-exp CVS branch). According to the mails I've seen, kernel
2.6.11 will probably not work, you'd better stick with 2.6.10.

I currently can de-scramble some TPS programs with:
- kernel 2.6.9
- CVS dvb around Feb 2005
- Manu's files (dst.c, dst_ca.c ..) with some modifs
- a hacked version of Manu's ca_zap (to send the ca_pmt messages to
  the CAM)
- SCM Red Viaccess CAM

There are still a lot of issues to iron out. See [1] for details.
Your help will be more than welcome to fix all these issues.  (The
whole Twinhan driver team is currently Manu and I. That's all)
