So I am trying again with a bit more detail and hoping someone somewhere

The TT-3200 works fine for DVB scan and capture, but I cannot get the CI

a "PC card did not respond" message in the kernel log.
I peppered the driver with extra diagnostics and as far as I can see the
initial CI reset process is started. The firmware version is reported as
0xa0 (is this correct?) so an interrupt is expected from the card. This
interrupt never occurs. If I poll the card status
(ciintf_poll_slot_status) when the reset times out then flags come back
as 9 (CAMDETECT|RESET) but it looks like the read_attribute_mem does not
give the correct value and returns 0x00 which I assume means that the

I have the CI adaptor working on the TT S-3200.
I have ubuntu 8.04 with kernel Linux pvr 2.6.24-16-generic
I use the latest multiproto drivers.

It looks like the driver is OK but I have an issue either with the
T.Rex/Dragon CAM when it used in this CI, or the CI interface on my
TT-3200, or the CI daughter board. What kind of CAM are you using? Has
anyone got a T.Rex/Dragon CAM working with the budget PCI driver.<br>
