Hi Ed,

That's because the version you're using on Windows is a week old or so.
Please install the latest version (like 02252012) and give it another
shot. I just loaded it up and verified that the model shows up there.

There's nothing wrong with the radio, so don't worry about that. I'm
trying to rule out a timing issue, which is why I wanted you to try it
on Windows just to be sure.

I'm copying Kurt on this, who I believe has what we expect is the exact
same radio as you, an 857D US version. It works for him, but it looks
like you may have a slightly different final block. Can the two of you
exchange exact model numbers (like from the label on the bottom of the
radio) to make sure that we're not dealing with a variant here. Are
either of your radios hard-modded?

I'm also copying Marco, as he wrote the bulk of that driver and may have
some ideas on how best to address the situation. Perhaps I should send
Ed a special build with the proper final block length so that we can
capture the image and have a look at it.

This is how things go when reverse engineering things in the dark. With
everyone's help and patience, I'm sure we'll get it figured out.
