    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.
