Hmm, still no joy with stty, I get unknown mode errors back is response to
the stty commands you suggested. 

I've just been having a look through the stty man page
.11+BSD&format=html). Does the pass8 switch solve the byte size problem?

The hardware runs on 8-bit clean channels.  Most UNIX kernels
kinda prefer to use 7e1 or 7o1.

Once you're logged in to the system, type "stty -parenb bits8" or
"stty -parenb cs8" or "stty -parenb 8" to go back to 8-bit mode.
Then reset your terminal program again :)

Nope.  VTc requires an 8-bit clean channel (for now).
