Hi Stuart , I'm not sure if you've done this , but this is what I had
to do ;-)

As system manager activate the System Manager Tool from Toolbox.

Select Serial Ports

there is an option to set the port to 'dials and buttons ', do this
for the appropriate port

reboot (may not be necessary but I did it to be on the safe side )

O will recognise the dials there. 

The .dials_real  value should be set to 0.15 to give approx the same
feel as an ESV.

Hope this helps
