Javier, Thanks for your patch.
IMHO, there are no big differences for registering the cio2 before and after all the subdevices are ready.
User may see a partial view of media graph but it presents what it really is then.
It indicate that device is not available currently not it is not there.
Could you help tell more details about your problem? The full context is helpful for me to reproduce your problem.
