CI works fine with the redirect mentioned above. You do not need any 
copying in userspace in this case. 

What could be supported, and this is not possible with any other DVB PCIe card
hardware I know of, is that an encrypted stream is sent from 
memory/hard disk/network to the CI and back for decryption.
