Why ? people who use the modules very well know who is the manufacturer, 
since Viaccess v481/483 is manufactured by SCM and not Aston.
In the case of Aston Viaccess it is Aston Pro II, manufactured by Aston. 
I don't think there's any confusion in that.

The same goes for the respective vendors.

Very much true, hence i posted the list of tested working modules, such 
that people should not get confused.
The vendor stated that the Aston Pro II is Not Guaranteed (NG). and told 
me that they haven't tested it, and probably it might not work.

Somebody, sent me an output today ..
I don't know whether it would work for the DST-CI. You may or may not 
need some tweaks on your machine, i am not sure about that. This is the 
info what i received, anyway.

I believe the guy has the latest CVS, seems to have the traces from the 
latest CVS.
