The PIC software should compensate for the Si570's startup frequency but
only if it is 56.32MHz. There is no simple way to rectify this so Bob's
remedy will have to be used. (Reprogramming the PIC is possible.)

If images are very obvious, if both sides are symmetrical then it is likely
you have a fault. You seem to say the Softrock is not very sensitive? If so,
then maybe the input transformer is wired wrongly.
In a subsequent post you say the calibration is greyed out. This is probably
only relevant with USB control, you cannot adjust the frequency of the Si570
without reprogramming the PIC. Is it a 56.32? it looks as if reprogramming
will be necessary to get the centre frequencies correct. You will have to
enter the true frequencies in Rocky's ini file.
