Just to answer your original question, as the thread was hijacked.

I use the seca3 TV-Vlaanderen card, with the original CAM on a nexus-s
with CI.

it works in VDR and kaffeine. For mythtv I can't answer you (myth failed
to work properly with both CI slots filled) , but I would suggest you
try Kaffeine, which at least would rule out your hardware. 
I'm using Debian Lenny in its default config.
