This raises one problem with LS. There are commands to control the
receiver but no notice about the compatibility of the command set. Some
commands are also given by default on startup without any prior knowledge
about the connected receiver.
Wors case scenario is to have a receiver starting firmware download with
the command. There were once such case with Redhat Linux, LG cd-rom
drives and vendor extension to ATA command set.
