Hi all,

Afaik, there is no way of getting the correct revision number/string of 
the card in use in software level. Ie. the card(s) don't have an eeprom or 
something where one can read its kind. Also to find out which card the 
driver has just took control of, has to be done by probing the 
frontend/demodulator-type, which leads to i2c-error-messages in syslog.

I saw a lot of different Air/Cable/SkyStar2 cards and the only way to find 
out the revision seems to be to look at the board's inscriptions.
