Re: Astro Saber Vocon how to add a serial number?

Tuner says: You cannot tune this radio until it has been CBI (Controller Board Intialization) Intialized.

The Initialization box says H04KDF9PW7AN and the radio it´s now in is a model1 so that´s probably what´s wrong I gues. That means I´m in the market for a model2 housing :lol:
