Common Interface Modules

Common Interface Modules compatibility chart

The Common Interface support of the current DVB driver is broken. That's why most Common Interface Modules don't work at the moment. If you have a CIM not listed here or if you got one of the modules listed as "not working" to work, please let me know.
