Will there be such a patch in the near future? Or this isn't in a plan right now?

Anyway, what is the right way to deal with this situation? Display letters or symbols after "9"?  Or deal with two digit numbers?

The internal code can handle more than 9 devices, but unfortunately the menu code would need to be updated to display meaningful keys and to check for them on entry.
