I guess that VLC creates a CA_PMT messages (i.e. an APDU) which is
encapsulated in a SPDU (session level) which is encapsulated in a TPDU
(transport level) and sent to the CAM.

To support High level CI, you'll have to plug something in VLC to send
the CA_PMT before the encapsulation done at session level.
