Default E-80 / SR161 / AIS problem

I installed the Smart Radio sr161 AIS receiver to a Raymarine E-80 with reasonable success; ie, the receiver's lights flash correctly indidating data reception and transfer to the display, and the E-80 AIS icon appears in the upper right hand corner of the display along with the GPS fix icon.
So far so good.
The problem AIS targets appear. Where are they...anyone know??

Did you change the NMEA 0183 speed on the E-80 to 38,400?

Remember, AIS operates at the faster speed.

Also the icon will change when it's recieving AIS data too. (Even if the sytem is turned on, it won't change unless it's recving data)
