OK, so you are saying that a probe returns parseable multiple
attribute/value(s) pairs. That make more sense than "tell me your name
and I'll look up your characteristics in a database".
But it still doesn't explain why some devices aren't being recognized
correctly. Maybe I am just buying cheap devices (Acer LCDs). Or maybe
the software still uses the old Model Lookup code.
