[linux-dvb] Has anyone got the CI on a TT 3200 past the initial reset state

I asked a similar question this a little whiile ago and got no answer. 
So I am trying again with a bit more detail and hoping someone somewhere 
can tell me whether I am wasting my time. I need to find out whether the 
CI daughter board is broken or this combination has never worked in the 
budget-ci driver.

The TT-3200 works fine for DVB scan and capture, but I cannot get the CI 
to initialise fully. It always times out on the initial reset and gives 
a "PC card did not respond" message in the kernel log.

I peppered the driver with extra diagnostics and as far as I can see the 
initial CI reset process is started. The firmware version is reported as 
0xa0 (is this correct?) so an interrupt is expected from the card. This 
interrupt never occurs. If I poll the card status 
(ciintf_poll_slot_status) when the reset times out then flags come back 
as 9 (CAMDETECT|RESET) but it looks like the read_attribute_mem does not 
give the correct value and returns 0x00 which I assume means that the 
CAM has not initialised. I have appended the dmesg output to the end of 
this message.

If anyone has got this working can you please let me know, so I can swap 
the CI daughter board for a working one and stop wasting my time debugging.
