I finally had a chance to try out the recent chipset update for the Vista HCx, i.e. chipset 2.90.

The following screen shot says it all. I walked the pink path (clockwise). The recorded log is the yellow line.

I am reverting to firmware 2.80/chipset 2.50 asap.

Here is the firmware:

I'm not sure where to find the earlier versions of the chipset.

Go here for downloading Chipset software.

Unfortunately, I don't see a copy of the 2.50.rgn file at that link.
