I expect this is the case. There are apparently two nearly identical
versions of the PX-2R floating around with no distinguishing features
other than a serial number range difference. As a result, supporting
these two models in CHIRP simply by attempting to guess which version is
being used it extremely error-prone and would also be non-trivial in the
amount of work required to do it. Even Puxing's own software has two
versions, one of which works with either radio, with no real explanation
of why or how to determine which is which.
So, I made the call to not invest the time trying to make CHIRP work for
both of them since you are only the second person I've heard from with
the "other" version of the radio. The first was keen on getting rid of
his radio anyway. Since I _think_ you have the older version, I'm not
sure it's worth the time and effort for just a few users.
Sorry for the bad news, but I hope you understand...
