AD9106 Pattern Status always 1

Category: Hardware
Product Number: AD9106-ARDZ-EBZ

I am trying to get the AD9106 Evaluation board to output anything to make sure that it is working correctly. I have it hooked up to an Arduino Uno and am writing and reading the registers correctly using a bit banging approach.

I have reviewed the getting started document, the FAQ and am adapting code from the Mbed cpp files to try all of the examples but am getting no output. The only thing that I can't figure out is that the pattern status register (0x1E) status bit is always 1 (value of 0x0002)

I have verifies that I am writing and reading the correct values from the register, I have pulled the trigger high and I send  0x0001 to both 0x1E and 0x1D and then recheck 0x1E and still get 2.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have been banging my head against this for al ost 3 weeks. Thanks!
