Many thanks for that comment.  I hadn't checked that before.

My cable was reversed.  A new/correct one arrived today.  The meter is 
working.  With a bit of practice, I'll bet I could read the data pattern off 
the wiggles.

But after an hour, the LCD still shows time-since-power-up rather than date 
and time.
