Only reading 8 byte

Developing on the NS9750 development board using the Net0S 7.1 platform. I’m having problems reading from the com port. I’ve tried both /com/0 and /com/1. I can write out from the port but when i tried to read data. I can only read 8 bytes at a time, the rest of the data seemed to get truncated.

I’ve tried this on 2 different bit rates. 9600 and 38.4k. The com settings are 8 databit, Even parity, and 1 stop bit.

It really looks like the read buffer is only 8 bytes long, but I find it highly unlikely. Has anybody ever seen this?

Oh, I’m using the sample serial port application as a template, maybe there’s a hidden setting in the project that limits the read buffer?
