Usually, H8 comes up with a constant beep on the sx. It responds to a
reset but then goes back to beeping as soon as a key is pressed. It does
seem to be attempting to synch, but it's not succeeding. I'll try giving
it several-to-many seconds between keypresses to see if that helps, but
clearly this is not a big problem.
