For me, the firmware doesn't get loaded, so I don't get that far. But I'm not 
posting because I expect this to be fixed for my stick now, I'm just happy 
that there is development going on at all, so that my device could be 
supported some day. I think it should be made known better, that there is 
some basic code, that's why I was posting.

If it is of interest, here's my system log:

If I can help with more informations or tests, just let me know.
