Cable is the "Name brand" Baofeng cable, when plugged in and setup it shows up as the CH340 cable. Trying to use the drivers is no avail.
If I set CHIRP to UV82 I get Incorrect 'Model' Selected when trying to download.
If i try and set is at UV-5R I get a "Radio did not respond" Error.
UV-82lll and UV-82WP "Error reading data from radio: not the amount of data we wanted"

After reviewing old bug issues and logs reported, looks like it may be a "new" firmware version? Not certain how to update this.

I submitted a patch a couple of weeks ago to fix this. I just discovered that I made a mistake. I will be submitting another patch soon that should "fix" the issue.

Patch submitted and accepted. The next daily build should work.
