Hi Jean,

I did test your patch, only following Roman's initial patch already
known, on eight different cards for now, also with three slightly
different remotes and it does not have any negative impact.

Please consider, that it is only about that single card for now and a
per card solution is enough.

I strongly remind, that we should not rely on unknown eeprom bytes, as
told previously and should not expand such into any direction.

If we make progress there, we should change it for all cards, but again,
what had happened on the m$ drivers previously is not encouraging to do
it without any need.

To do it per card in need for now seems enough "service" to me.

If more such should come, unlikely on that driver, I would at first deny
auto detection support, since they are breaking rules.

The problem likely will time out very soon.
