Don't know, Cc:'ed the owner of the card. Currently it is paired with
another bt878 grabber card which has a PCI Subsystem ID.

The windows driver's I've seen so far do check the ssid, althrough some
handle it better than others: The (old) Hauppauge drivers I have become
greatly confused if they find a card with a unknown ssid. Maybe that is
fixed by now. The Terratec Windows drivers just pick the card they know
about and ignore the other one as they should. Don't know what the
generic/reference/cheapo-card drivers do.

The problem bttv has here is that it can't simply ignore cards without
ssid because that would break all the crap^Wcheap boards out there ...


You can't please everybody. And usually if you _try_ to please
everybody, the end result is one big mess.
