    Your post is confusing.
    You mention you reinstalled the same system, using all the same components...but did you change the operating system ?
    Were you running the same Vista before or XP ?

    For the CB DAB unit to work you need to have the FTDI USBserial driver loaded and configured for it to work.
    This driver was for XP and I am not sure if they will work in Vista and more than likely not in W7 64-bit.

    Find an updated FTDI USBserial driver for your operating system then configure it and try again.

    cb dab unit

    exact same system, i even removed drivers and allowed unit to find drivers from web on car pc and laptop with the result, i then removed the drivers again and dloaded the ftdi drivers from the chip site and installed manually, same result.

    the unit installs correctly and creates a com port in device manager, i can even probe the unit with a ftdi programmer, thats how i adjusted the bus voltage of the unit so i know its connected

    Have you configured the FTDI driver for the DAB module?
    Device Manager -> Ports -> Properties of the USB to Serial device -> Port Settings -> Advanced and set Latency to 1ms.

    going crazy

    just tried it same problem,,,,,,,,,,
    i have tried numerous leads and baud rates with same error, "invalid port selection", it shows up in device manager perfect and i can connect to it with a FTDI programmer so i dont get it. im thinkin there must be somthing wrong with the part of the main board that supplies power the venice board.

    there is 2 vr's on the board in between the 3 capacitors, the output line from vr1 says 3.3 v on the center pin 2 but im getting nothing, pin 1 is negitive which is fine as ive tested continuity and pin 3 has 5.1v in so im thinking this may be ****ed because vr2 has nothing in or out and i think this is wired in series with vr1 which would make sense.

    anyone know if pin 2 on vr1 should have 3.3v out or have one they could check on, in the mean time im going to order the vr

    Just a long shot but you may want to check if the capacitors are still soldered on properly.
    Read a few posts of people with capacitors actually falling off of their pcb!

    Has anybody tested the same PCB with a Venice 5 and Corona module to see which has the best signal?

    I should have a new screen next week and this means DAB in the car once again!!

    Also, I have a spare Verona module with SerMMI FW if anybody is in need?
