Honestly spoken I never tried the 1.20 firmware on the NOVA-T 500. (This 
card was last used in DiBcom 3 years ago.)

It might be that using the new i2c-requests along with the I2C-master do 
not work with some boards.

In that case you can still use the new i2c-requests but you need to select 
the gpio-bus instead of the i2c-master-bus.
