Hello, I am having a heck of a time trying to start the process of programming my ft817 by doing the initial download.  I bought one cable, and after multiple failures using both Mac and PC, I bought another cable, the more expensive one.  On the Mac side,  I’ve downloaded and installed the ftdi drivers from here:  http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm .  Still does not work.   The radio just goes into “error”.  I’m not getting an error message from Chirp.   The Radio screen just starts flashing “Error” a few seconds after I put it into transmit mode.    The Drivers appear to be working as the download dialog shows “dev/cu.usbserial-AI04KBP8” as an option.  I really don’t have any idea what else to try.  On the  PC side,  (under parallels), under “Devices”  I connect  the FT232R USB UART to the PC.   Same thing happens.  I go to download from radio, now “Com6” is what shows up, when I hit transmit it just errors out after a few seconds.  No error message from CHIRP.  The clone dialog just sits there open.  Would sure appreciate any suggestions.  Getting really frustrated.  –cj-

    A while ago I purchased a TYT-8000E and I'm trying to figure out
    whether there's a way how to make it work with chirp. It's quite
    a decent Chinese model, sort of a better built Baofeng with 10W 
    transmit power and an accordingly sized battery :)
    I've seen there's a new model request #2837 for it, from about 
    a year ago, but no activity on it.
    Are there any other people on this list using this radio? If yes,
    which SW are you using to program it? 
    Also, if there's a developer willing to implement the support for
    this radio, I could provide hardware on loan and/or help out with 
    Connection closed by remote ghost.
