Ok, I'll look into that.  It's been some time since I last did 8051
stuff, but a 8k firmware image is certainly not something too complex to
look into.

After taking the device apart, there basically is nothing on the PCB
that looks intelligent enough ;)  There's the MT532, the can tuner and
the FX2.

...is quite expensive, compared to the other devices...

exactly, that's the case with two of the four devices I bought.

Anyway, thanks for your assistance
