Unless I'm misunderstanding you, and the Twinhan you're using is the 
same as mine, it doesn't support the 'normal' CI methods of access. This 
is all that Myth (AFAIK, I'd be glad to find otherwise) understands.

ca_zap won't help, unless you call it as part of some fictional 'channel 
change' script, which gets more messy than even I'd like to consider. 
Support for the "High level CI" needs added to Myth if you want your 
card supported.
