In Antti Palosaari's reply to the post "Re:  getting started with 
msi tv cards" He says, "All remote keys are not working because driver does
not upload IR-table to the chip"
>From this I am unsure if the same applies to the operation of the DVICO card 
and if tables are uploaded into volatile memory on each load or if they are 
written to firmware. However it does seem to provide a clue towards 
answering my question while raising an area of general concern.

My questions are:-
Does the current v4l-dvd driver supporting the DVICO Dual Express Rev. 2 
card upload remote control tables to the firmware?
If so, is it possible that this has the unwanted effect of preventing the 
DVICO remote control software from loading when the card is re-installed 
into a windows machine?
Is there a way to test this and/or reset  the card to its original state?
