I've tried to email these guys a couple of times. Sadly, they are not very responsive... Could be six months before we see anything. Best we squeak the wheel a bit... ;-)

Figured I might as well poke downstream too.

I've commited an initial version of the microcode for this device, but I need somebody to test it for me (and get the microcode version). IIf somebody could follow the instructions at http://lists.mediati.org/archives/r5u870-list/2008-September/000053.html

and paste the output so I can put in the correct microcode version (and make sure it'll actually work!).
Cheers.
