Chirp 0.4.1 for Mac OS X. Trying to program a Yaesu 8800R. The radio accepts all frequencies. The left side banks are also accepted, however, the right side banks are not.

I have attached the .img file I am uploading...

Please help!

I have the same issue.

I have the same issue using 4.1 for windows.

I bet this is a regression from #739

Seeing the same issue on windows with daily build 20150814. Suspect this may be a address alignment issue as right side band assignments are successfully retrievable from the radio and report correctly in the right band tab. But are not recognized by the radio, so Chirp is pushing and pulling from the same config memory location.

However manual memory and band assignments on the right side are not downloading with band information on pulls from the radio. I would take a guess that the band info is not being placed where the radio is looking for it but it is being stored and is retrievable.

Still no joy in programming the right side memory bank on windows with CHIRP daily-20170420. It did successfully upload the memory assignments which was helpful.
Further work seems to be needed with the right side memory bank.

I have the same problem:
Mac OSX 10.11.6
Chirp build: daily-20170501
Yaesu ft-8800r

If I download from the radio, the right-side bank shows banks checked in the data that's downloaded. However, it shows a lot more banks checked than I have manually set in the radio. It seems to show the values as in a previous file I had used even though it was supposedly downloaded from the radio (?)
When I upload to the radio, it doesn't matter what I have set in Chirp for the right-side bank, the result of the upload is NO banks are set on the right set. This is easy to reproduce: Manually set some memories on the right side to a bank or two, download a new file from the radio, then upload that same file. All banks on right side of the radio are erased.

This is the only problem I have ever had with any Chirp version across all my radios. Is there an older version where this bug is not present? I'll happily use an older version and just stick with it since everything else works.

Update to my previous post

I updated to Chirp build "daily_20170510" (i.e., May 10th vs. May 1st) and here are the differences I noticed:
- Whatever I put in the screen for the RIGHT bank gets uploaded to the radio in the LEFT bank
- Adding/changing memory bank settings on the "Left Bank" tab in the application apparently has no effect on the radio when uploaded.
- When I download from the radio, the application shows all memory channels assigned to a bank for the right side (as I had previously set and uploaded), but they are not set that way in the radio after upload. There were only a few banks manually set on the right side and only those should be displayed (as opposed to a bunch more)
- The right bank is not completely erased upon upload to the radio (as with previous version of Chirp). However, the only memory banks preserved on the right side are those that were set when the file was downloaded from the radio.
- If I manually program new memory bank settings on the right side, these are erased when uploading to the radio (as I supposed they should be) except what's on the screen is not uploaded
- The memory banks that were manually programmed on the right side ARE downloaded from the radio but are not properly displayed. I know this because if I make changes manually to the right bank, then upload the file I just downloaded, the banks on the right side are reset to what they were before I downloaded the file. In other words, "somewhere", those bank settings are recorded in the application because if I upload a specific file to the radio, the right bank settings AS OF THE TIME THAT FILE WAS DOWNLOADED, are set in the radio when uploading that file.
Example (all right-side banks):
Say Repeater 1 is set to bank 1, repeater 2 is set to bank 2, and repeater 3 is set to bank 3
Download from the radio
Display shows a lot more memory channels than those three are set to various banks
Manually add Repeater 4 to bank 4 using the radio
Upload that file I just downloaded, and repeater 4 will not be set (this is actually correct because I just overwrote my manually-set bank with the file from Chirp)
But - no matter how I change the settings for the right bank in Chirp (using either Left Bank tab or Right Bank tab), when I upload, only repeaters 1, 2, and 3 will be set to banks 1, 2, and 3 just like they were when I downloaded the file.

Sorry to be long-winded, hope this helps - ask if you need clarification.

I know the 8800 is not a new rig, but any chance this could be looked it and possibly resolved?

Same issue with the right side memory bank. :(
