I'm using LPCXpresso 4.3 to debug (because I am not convinced of v5 stability yet) on WinXP Prof SP3 (32 bit)
LPC1778 Custom PCB

I forgot to set the EnableDMA bit in the FIFO register when I set up my uart (Uart0)
Then I setup the RX DMA channel as if I had.

The surprising thing is that the RX DMA is working as expected -- i.e. received characters can be seen in the DMA

Can anyone explain this or othwerwise shed light on the issue.
