Yes, the second Mk2 entry is for a Mk2G - the window showing the label 
erroneously cuts it off.

Here are the hexidecimal ICOM CI-V IDs which NA expects for the three 
IC-706 radio types:

IC-706          48h
IC-706Mk2       4Eh
IC-706Mk2G      58h

Double check what your radio is set for and see if this matches.  I have a 
Mk2G which has been used with computer control so I know it works, but I 
can't recall the CI-V ID I used.  The radio is not on a power supply now, 
but I'll hook it up if you cannot figure out what's going on.
