Puzzled - can't seem to change mode ?

I've just received a V3a Bus Pirate with a B5 version PIC which has flashed V3.5 (standard) firmware without problems, talks to Bray's Terminal OK and passes all self tests without issues.

What's puzzling me is that when I try to change the mode it stays in Hi-Z mode.

I didn't have the BP connected to anything whilst running the test so I was wondering whether this is by design ?

I've copied and pasted from Bray's:

HiZ>M
1. HiZ
2. 1-WIRE
3. UART
4. I2C
5. SPI
6. JTAG
7. RAW2WIRE
8. RAW3WIRE
9. PC KEYBOARD
10. LCD
(1) >
Mode selected
HiZ>5
No mode set, M for mode
HiZ>
* Syntax error, type ? for help
HiZ>I
Bus Pirate v3
Firmware 3.5
DEVID:0x0447 REVID:0x3043 (B5)

HiZ>

Can't help thinking I'm having a 'Durrrr' moment :-) Any assistance greatly appreciated !

Kind Regards,
Robin

I knew it would be a 'Durrrr' moment..... I had Bray's set up so that CR = CR+LF so the BP was interpreting it as me hitting return twice.

Apologies for the wasted bandwidth !

Kind Regards,
Robin
