My settings are the same as George's. 
I also had the issue of intermittent loss of connection and saw some threads about cable lengths under certain circumstances. I was using a long 6' cable. I purchased a 3' cable part number RPC-i17-UF made by Valley Enterprises. It has the C-17 USB FTDI chipset and is designed especially for the iCom CI-V cat control. After that my problems went away.

Radio 1:  Icom, model IC-910H, COM port 6, CAT delay 70.  Baud rate 9600, address $60, $60, $60, $60.  Satellite mode checked, others not checked. Radio 2 not set.  I am using the West Mountain Radio Rig Talk USB dongle to interface to the radio.

I occasionally see the situation you describe where the bands are reversed when first connecting to the radio, but un-clicking and re-clicking on the "C" option corrects it.  Otherwise, mine works flawlessly.
