Dos anyone know why they changed the product ID? Is there any difference 
other than the ID?

I have an older (Rev C1) unit that works fine, does this mean I would 
need to have two different setups if I buy a second one?

I do get the "untested firmware" warning in the logs, but things seem to 
work OK, though I only use analog audio.
