That was going to be my next suggestion as I'd heard that a good number of
users are having problems with 1.54. This is one reason why GF have kept the
1.33 version on their site - it was a rock solid release.

Update - have just discovered that GF config software v 1.52 supplied on
CD with the new kit allows the 166A and RP48 to function OK.  So the
updated version 1.54 which I downloaded is clearly at fault ...
