Yes. The C bits are usually ignored by the receiver since a lot of
sources don't configure them well. But it turns out that in this case
setting the non-audio bit is a mandatory setting.

I will have to recheck for these two cases. I guess it is since I can
see the D+ logo, but let me confirm for these two cases.
