Hi Henrik & Manu,

This is to report a success!!
I have MythTV working with the Twinhan Cab-CI card for DVB-C with the 
Alphacrypt 3.05  CA module (as sold by satshop.nl) and a conditional 
access smartcard from  "tvhome" in the Netherlands (www.tvhome.nl).
I have done the following:
In the DST driver (hg version date 2 februari 2006):
- applied patch "linux-dvb/2006-January/007452.html" as referred to in 
MythTV ticket #844
  I did this manually as patch does not seem to understand the 
line-wrapped html format.
- edited the ".type_flags" definition of the DCT-CI device to 
DST_TYPE_HAS_NEWTUNE | DST_TYPE_HAS_FW_2. This is described by Manu 
somewhere. Patchfile dst.patch is attached.
In MythTV (svn version 8843 date 2 february 2006):
- applied patch in file "hcli.patch" as described in MythTV ticked #844.
- in file mythtv/libs/libmythtv/mpeg/mpegstreamdata.cpp modified the 
code to check if a TS packet has Adaptation Field Control. According to 
the error message this is a check for ATSC compliancy, but if these 
packets are discarded it does not work. Patch file mpegstreamdata.patch 
is attached.

I can now view all encrypted channels to which I am entitled (about 30 
of them). Scheduled recordings on MythTV backend are OK. EIT update of 
MythTV database is also OK.
Remaining problem: timeout in MythTV frontend when selecting "Watch TV" 
the first time. Restarting MythTV frontend fixes this; after this it 
works OK until the PC is rebooted. I might fix this timeout if I can 
find it.

If you put the DVB fixes in the hg version I can of course test it again.

Thanks a lot,
