Not a problem at all. Yes, this list is only for the ESPHome
custom_component to run without a manufacturer dongle (= own ESP board).
We just wanted to show, how many A/Cs are usable without a manufacturer dongle, to make it easier for people to select an A/C that is usable with HA before buying.
PS: Just leave your posts, doesn’t matter, I’ll just take your device off the list and all is good.
