For anyone interested...I did eventually get the EV-2 delivered (today) from the eBay vendor NewItemExpress. The original one that was shipped got lost somewhere in transit. Once I got that established with the seller via email, they were very responsive and agreed to overnight me a second one via FedEx from Hong Kong at their expense. It works fine and I am looking forward to using it.I had the same results and now have one on order via eBay from a firm in Hong Kong DBA NewItemExpress. They have been around since 2005 and have a very positive rating. We will see. It was $288 USD plus $25 shipping. I was supposed to be shipped today. They have responded to an email quickly so I am hoping they do ship as promised.
