Additional images showing the browser tab which shows the read values. The issue appears to be that line 412 of chirp/drivers/h777.py directly uses the voicelanguage value but for some reason it is at 255 which is out of range for the VOICE_LIST list.

Similar issue happens on line 431 with (_settings.voxlevel + 1) being out of the 1-5 specified range. I ended up using the browser to program valid values for the items causing the exceptions and then I was able to see the settings.

I guess one solution is to add some bounds checking so these exceptions aren't thrown and the settings page will display even if the values are out of range in some way. Although I guess a try catch would also work. I'm not sure what the more pythonic way to fix it is, otherwise I'd write up a patch.

Second exception here:

Have you been able to resolve this on your own since you submitted this?
Have you tried with a recent version since you submitted this?
Remark: this behavior might be caused by some settings in the radio being out-of-range.
