Baofeng BF-F8HP (UV-5R 3rd Gen) won't program
I checked device manager and I have a FTDI cable and am unable to program my radios (I have 3 identical radios purchased together).
I am using the latest daily build of CHIRP.
I have tried selecting BF-F8HP and UV-5R and with both I get "An error has occurred. Radio refused to send block"
I have tried different computers, different USB ports, etc.

I went back and checked my order and the cable is the official cable sold by Baofeng (The $20.46 one).
