Thanks for all the help. My conclusion was that the Si 570 was bad, but as i said, I am a newbie to this whole SDR. Pad 2 is definately showing no voltage, and the test does not return an error. You have confirmed to me that it is the Si 570. I will attempt to replace it ( I have nightmares about desoldering it, but...). Again, thanks for the help.
