But activating COM2 at least will be required, I guess? It's active in
the original BIOS (appears in /proc/ioports).

Juergen, can you post 'lsmod' and 'ps auxw' in the original version of the
BIOS/DoC software? Maybe also a dmesg (full boot log). My guess is that
the card readers worked with their software, and as that's Linux-based
maybe we just have to find the correct driver name?

I can't seem to find a button where I can put the box into upgrade mode
in order to get a shell. The settings screen is password protected on
my box, that may be the reason. I'll see if I can work around that.
