Thank you very much for taking a look at that.

I inserted the mt2060_if1-field in the state, because I thought about 
adding a complete eeprom-parser...

I'm wondering also if the eeprom-address for the if1-offset is always the 
same for each design. How did you find 0x48 and 0x49? Normally the 
addresses are dynamic, depending on the strings before (afaik).

Furthermore the bristol-card has two mt2060-if1-offsets - one for each 

The best would be, but it will take some time, to write the eeprom-parser 
to always find the correct offset....

Would you have the time to do have a look at that?

thanks again,
