There is already a conflict with the AV710; it appears all three vendors
use some default ID.

Their CMI8788-based cards implement only features that are a subset of
those supported by the generic Windows driver.  (I guess they ship
an .ini file that disables things like 7.1 output on a stereo card (thus
breaking other models with the same ID), but it's possible that they
just don't bother.)
