Hi all,
Please excuse the cross-post to LAU and Alsa-User.

I haven't been as involved as much here in the last year as I was
earlier, and I'm on actually leaving anytime soon. However my systems
are RME HDSP 9652 based and it appears that with new machines and the
more-or-less forced move to Windows 7 RME has required a flash
firmware update that will make my systems incompatible with Alsa going
forward. This makes me sad, but with no real continuing development
happening for these RME cards in a long, long time (at least none I
know of...) it appears that I will finally become unable to use Alsa
after the next few days.

If anyone knows a way to keep these RME-based machines compatible
with both Windows 7 64-bit as well as Gentoo AMD64/Alsa I would sure
like to hear about it as it finally seems that I no longer can live
with outdated firmware which worked as long as I was running Win XP

I hope this doesn't mean that I end up disappearing completely from
Linux Audio as I love it but without support for these cards I would
certainly be around a lot less.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.
