Feature #4477: Hardware CI Digital Devices DDCI2
DDCI2 - implement multi-transport-stream-decoding (MTD)
DDCI2 (and maybe other / future CAMs) supports the decoding for multiple services on different transport streams.
MTD descrambling is a bit 'abuse' of the standard CAM mechanism. It requires PID remapping, proper CAT PID mangling and SID mangling.
The VDR has more-or-less complete implementation:
The ETSI TS 103 205 specification allows multi-stream decoding using the local-TS identifiers (no PID remapping, the 0x47 sync byte is replaced with the local-TS identifier).
ETSI TS 103 205: http://www.etsi.org/deliver/etsi_ts/103200_103299/103205/01.01.01_60/ts_103205v010101p.pdf
The implementation should be separated from the actual tvh's caclient (shared code).

To be more precise: DDCI2 is just a bridge for CAMs. The CAM must support the multi-stream decoding and appearently there are two standards MTD/MCD (multiple transport decoding/multiple channel decoding) and the official one defined in CI plus (ETSI TS 103 205) which uses local-TS identifiers.
