Mike,
I downloaded this latest update only to read that it has proven troublesome with regard to ctss issues? I haven't updated the scanner, so will hold off until there is a new update with the issues resolved. Have you any ideas if AOR are aware etc? Cheers!

Received from AOR on Monday:

Dear Mike,

Thank you for using the AR-DV1 and for taking the time in sharing your concern with us.

Good job into finding this bug! We are sorry for the inconvenience caused. Let us run some tests and fix this little problem soon. In the meantime you can conveniently revert to 1702 if 1710C is too much trouble, until we find a fix.

Thank you for your patience.

Best regards / Mit freundlichen Gruessen / Cordialement,

I've looked on the AOR website for the firmware updates, looks like there's an update ready for dv1 users.

They have fixed the CTCSS issue, but am looking to see what else they have buggered up before saying anything..

Same here. AOR have a habit of making new bugs when they fix the old ones. As my DV-1 is working well already, I'll wait until a few people have tried it first.
