Sorry - the issue is not CRC errors caused by the card introducing errors. 
It's because the transmitted stream doesn't include the (admittedly optional) CRC.

Daniel in commit 7963 added support for providers that transmit PES packets 
without CRCs.

I was suggesting that the listing of "faulty" cards can be removed, since this 
is more than likely the root cause, rather than bad drivers / hardware.
