[linux-dvb] Twinhan Cab-CI 2031

I have a Twinhan Cab-CI card and I've been trying to get it to work in 
my Debian machine, I want to use it as a MythTV backend eventually. The 
card is a model 20310(says so on the box). At first I tried it with the 
drivers that came with, but all I got  from scan was ">>> 
tuning status == 0x00". So I tried the more-or-less latest CVS and a 
snapshot, but the only difference was that the scanning got faster(it 
was very slow at first). Right now I compiled a kernel without 
any DVB drivers(only the dvb-core) included and installed the CVS 
versions, again only >>> tuning status == 0x00.

So I'm wondering, does this card work at all? I understand that there 
are different versions? Also, all my channels are encrypted with Conax, 
but I do have a CAM and it works in my win machine. Nevertheless, I was 
under the impression, that I should still be able to detect the 
channels, just not watch them, if the CAM part doesn't work?

It's very likely I'm just doing something wrong or missing a step...
