Turns out the left digit was showing a F and a number that would be the 
frequency IF it was running, which at powerup, it wasn't.

This XGRB is i believe a typu, I have found it called XGND other places 
in the booklet.

[... separete grounds for analog and digutal]

I have done that now. Using 2 cables, but have yet to slip some heat 
shrink over the drain wires used for the analog GND, and the digital 
switches FWD, REV version of XGND. 

I scrounged thru the pile of scraps behind the chop saw and came up with 
some 3/4" ply to  make a mount so its screwed down now.

This "thing" probable has 200 registers that report data, but are skipped 
in the booklets lists.  That alone is making the extra serial output on 
the 7i76 more appetizing, so what do I add to the hm2_pci loadrt line to 
make that port visible to the halmeter or dmesg?

Thanks everybody.
