Thanks for the response. I had tried increasing the time between
channel changes previously but it had little effect.
I hard code set the time between the select and sending the first digit
to 1 second and the time between digits to .6 and the channel changes
seem fairly reliable. I will continue testing today and post a further
Thanks and hopefully this will find a good solution.
