hi hdspd-ers!

*) concerning the "too new firmware" problem: the only workaround i know 
to downgrade the firmwareversion (you can only do that in windows or macOS)
*) i once got a hdsp9652 pci card with external adat-interface to work 
by using alsa 0.9rc7 and fooling the driver to think  of the card as a 
different one.

you will find more detailed descriptions in the howto i startet to write 
a while ago:
