Hi all,

I have completed my fix of descrambling on streams level and I can finally
watch all my channels FTAs as well as scrambled.
If the PMT contains no CA descriptor on programme level and common CA
descriptors on stream level, the stream level common CA descriptors are
now moved to programme level. Thanks to Manu for the idea and explaining
to me how things work :).

Before I start submitting patches it would be good to test the code some
more. It would be great if people could send me parts of their ca_zap
printout so that I could test the parser and copier with more data than my
own. What I am interrested is the row(s) reading:
parse_pmt: PMT Data=[ <snip> ]

In order not to clog the list with this, please send them directly to me.
