As far as I know, it's a limitation of the chipset used. It's not a
driver bug as such. The main person working on / with this card is Manu.
He has been doing work on a "High level CI API", however, if I'm reading
the comments in the ML correctly this may have stalled due to politics.
Myth does not support the not-yet-existing API, therefore these cards
(even though they're nice and cheap) do not work with CI / CAM / Cards.
