You might try the serial terminal.  I killed a UPA creator once when putting
it into a U1E.  I bent a couple pins which made the U1E not even want to
post, just spit a quick error message to the serial port.  Unlike Sbus cards
the UPA cards seem fairly fragile.

Of course, it could be something else, but you might want to rule out
my scenario =)
