You guessed correctly. All time I compare attribute 190 with the
temperature the sum of both is 100. Can you add this ID to the database?
(Or maybe just skip it in the output, since it's a duplication and also
violates the "values should always not smaller than the threshold" rule).

Yep, this is well known for the Dreambox 7025 satellite reciever. The
manufacturer means it's tolerable ...

How about the other IDs?

There is also no way to reply to a mail from the archive (as I tried
first), because the headers are not available. IIRC SourceForge admins
can enable mbox creation ...
