Something is still not working. I got the cable, upgraded the firmware, downloaded the custom reband table to a previously unused bank using the software, and I still get nothing. The display shows "COTRL" and the success rate when I am tuned to the active Portland/Mult Co control channel. I hear the same control channel "garbage" when I am tuned to the active Wash/Clack Co control channel, but it never displays the "COTRL" success rate which suggests to me that it is not interpreting the info. I verified this for both Wash and Clack Co active control channels today when I was well within range of each of the two transmitters (Tualatin to Clackamas on I-205).
On a separate thought, shouldn't I still get channels 0-439 without rebanding? It's been completely silent.
Any more ideas?
