Or is it reading the whole packet but not displaying it?

It is reading the whole packet but just not displaying it.

I did have some online dialogue with the software author when I first built mine a year or so ago. Basically he said that he couldn't see the point in displaying the WHOLE packet data, as the first part of the monitor display gave all the information needed. As he put it "already decoded into English"....albeit he was Dutch. It was remembering this previous dialogue with the software author that triggered my 'light bulb' moment in my reply edit.

PS - That KB command table is already in my monitor construction tutorial on the page 3 download link. I updated the document on the link to a later V2-1 version. If your copy of my tutorial didn't have the table then you might have downloaded my earlier V2 version.

Kowing me, I've probably seen it but forgotten it.
