Hi, Steve,

I am on the road right now, so I could only do some limited testing with
command line tools.

With the latest change set 6957, seems like the TS at least now have
data output, but I am not sure if it is correct, since the PIDs (reported
by scan) are not right (compared to the PIDs reported on a working card
at the same frequency). In fact, the PIDs seem like just random numbers.

Or do you have a more recent patch?

I don't see any IR related code in the change set 6957. Did you push
these patch to the hg tree yet? In any case, I will do more test later
tonight when I get back home (for both TS and IR).
