Sadly SoftCAM seems to suffer from the Fight Club problem. ("The first
rule of Fight Club is, you do not talk about Fight Club")

For some reason almost all DVB-C cards lack CI or at least require an
extra PCI slot for it. I have no idea why. Perhaps they expect people
to use them with SoftCAM, since basically no providers transmit more
than a few channels unencrypted.


Still trying to find a one-PCI-slot solution for DVB-C with HD support
and a CI.
