Jim, Thanks so much for the quick response!!

I hope I'm not doing something stupid, but for the life of me I can't access ANY settings.

I'm not sure if this photo will come through or not, but it's a screen shot of a chirp window when I click the settings button (in case you can't see it, the Settings button is now blue, but there is nothing but blank screen to the right.)

I downloaded the latest daily build today.

I have downloaded and uploaded back and forth to and from the radio a few times now hoping I'd eventually get access to the settings features.

Any suggestions?

Thanks again, Rob
