You put the card in a Windows based (or maybe Mac based, I don't know)
computer and you run the firmware updater for the Rev 101 (65 hex) firmware.
It takes the card down to rev 101. This is available on the RME web site
under downloads.

Yep. You run the Rev 104 (hex 68) updater to do that.
I've done this process 10 times anyway.

I would like to as I cannot get all the Windows based tools from RME for the
101 firmware revision.

Not in the HDSP 9652. In this case it really is firmware. I think in the
case of the DigiFace/MultiFace it is not except it's as good a term as any
so we continue to use it.
