Anyone have an experience putting the two together?

After taking 5 minutes to find a loose connector(duh) I got it working, or
so I thought.

First off, I couldn't use measuring blocks.  000 is disabled(it's
unregistered), but all the groups said "GROUP NOT AVAIL" in the value
fields.  Er?

If y'all open your Bently manuals to Vol 1, D2-440, you'll see a listing
of channels 1-10 and what they're supposed to be, followed by lots of "if
it ain't in this range, your doinkus is fried" etc.

Now, I spent about 15 minutes with the car running trying to figure out
just what the heck was going on; save engine temperature(channel
1) nothing seemed to match up to the range the Bently said to expect with
the engine idling and all power-sucking devices off.  WTF?  O2 sensor,
engine load, engine speed...I could blip the throttle and none of them
change.  Joy.

I figured I'd see if any 200q20v owners had actually used it, since Uwe
probably doesn't have a 200q20v handy nor much experience with them.
