It will work to read the local and external temperature yes, but not
for setting the temperatur.
If setting in standard mode, the tmp451 part fix the value to 0-127
but for the tmp461 we have -40 to 127.

I'v currently no chip here in the office to test it, hopefully I will
get one next week.

Yes, i think autodetection makes it very crapy. May be i will find
another solution.

Ok, I will find a way to do it :-)
