Yes, so that's my basic dumb question ... if you change one of the hex values, isn't that something that the checksum checks? And if so, wouldn't the checksum value for that line change? Handled automatically somehow?

No doubts about the needle angles and old vs. new temperatures you want programmed in there. Just the checksum thing does not make sense to me.

I had thought that maybe if the changed parameters were all symmetric changes, so some went up by the same amount that others went down, the required checksum changes might self-cancel. But it does not look like that is the case with the numbers here.
