I don't believe the O2 works the same way. I was on the phone with Paul
yesterday and after trying several things he determined that there was a
problem, however, not sure whether it's the 302, the cable or the O2,
so I sent the 302 and cable back to them and they will check it out. If
they are good then there is a problem with my O2. Thanks for your
