Since you Cc'd Klaus: VDR already contains a CI library, and I guess
he's not eager to include another one. It would be nice if you
could point out to him what needs to be changed in VDR to support
Twinhan-style CI, or maybe even send him a patch. But you
better sort that out on the vdr mailing list.
