Not likely - the chip/TSOP is just a dumb holder for the BIOS.
This is interesting. I suspect that Frosty might know something about it, and you may be right that it's only the 1.0/1.1 that won't work with the 1.6 version - but that makes no sense either. The video encoder chip was Conexant for 1.0-1.4, Focus for 1.4-1.5, Xcalibur for 1.6, so if it works for a 1.2 it should work for a 1.0/1.1, unless there is an incompatibility in the memory map of the Kernel for the 1.0/1.1.
I feel a bit more digging is required.
to be fair I cant say i have used it on a 1.4/1.5 with focus chip eiter..
(i may have i just dont remember)
But having said that if i had a 1.4 with focus chip i would have had to test the lpc to make sure it wasnt a 1.5..
If i get a 1.4 in il test that as well.
but right now i only have some 1.6's and a 1.2..
i have a nother 1.2 on the way some time.
and i also have 2 unknown black consoles coming and a 1.6 crystal..
although after talking to some one the other day it seems there are 1.4/1.5 crystals about too.. i had never seen one before but the pictures he sent dont lie. and the mfr date was about 1month before official release data and 1 day before the common held date of switch over to 1.6.. it was definatly a 1.4/1.5
so you never know i could be able to test it sooner rather than later.
but i have a feeling the console he had was a display moddel for showing off the console/design when they were anouncing it.. (although mfr date is about 2 weeks after inital anouncment so its really confusing)
i should also test it with some of the duo chips i have i guess but i dont want to open those untill some 1 requests i install one.
