I am afraid I do not. There is no string ID in EEPROM contents (unlike
in some other cards). Perhaps the Chaintec EEPROM would offer a hint,
but I do not have the card on hand.

It is a very low-cost generic card, not many people know about it. Since
you applied the patch preventing kernel oops when the AV710 code was run
for this card, the autodetection just chooses a wrong card and it is
simple to reload the module with the model parameter. Plus I would not
be surprised if the other cards with different accessories produced by
that company shared all the same PCI ids and differed just in EEPROM
configs (most likely incorrect too :-) )
