Thanks for the detailed explanation.

If you switch the ipod on with the remote tuner already plugged in, it
is not recognized and you need to unplug and re-plug in it.

Probably I'm in wrong talking about the boot loader. Maybe the more
correct thing is to recognize it after RB is loaded: in this case all
the interrupt vectors should be available.

Regards.
