I have a 1680A running 5.70. It works fine, although sometimes it takes a couple of tries to get it to recovgnize the LA hardware (the software times out before the frame can initialize). I downloaded 5.80 the other day and installed it without any problems, but the LA hardware *never* intialilzed and the software always started up in the "demo" mode. I unistalled it and went back to 5.70, and everything was back to normal.

Question: Is the 5.80 software supposed to work with the 1680-series? There is an indreict reference to it being compatible in the release notes, but it's not explicitly listed with the other approved hardware models. If it is compatible, is there a workaround for the relatively long hardware initialization/software timeout issue?
