    I had issues when connected to a linux box. Same issue. I connected up an old Windows XP notbook and it all worked OK. I havent tried any other devices, but I have read that the USB interface can be a bit fiddly.

    I'll admit I didnt, however I expect that these have just factory defaulted anyway as the CMOS backup battery was flat. I have replaced it and it now remembers settings. AFAIK they are required to align the radio in relation to the filters and such, rather than the old trimmer to tweak the...
