I have the same card here with
-an AlphaCryptLite
-K02 (from KabelDeutschland) and
-CardReader external 3.5" from Hauppauge as well.

Everything works fine with using
-the latest driver from the Mercurial Tree (with kernel 2.6.19.2),
-VDR-1.4.4 and
-TvTime

With VDR, I can do all kinds of SmartCard-queries like, e.g., the
cardNumber.

Below you got some system information from my computer
