Weatherfax Recieve On IC-7000 ?

I'm trying to get an icom ic 7000 set up with a laptop to recieve weatherfax. With JV comm it all works fine using a degen 1103, 7879Khz and a fiddle with the "fine" knob produces perfect pics. (7880Khz is Hamburg, good signal)

But with the icom, i can only get the pitch right to get the spike in the "white" part of the spectrum display by tuning up to 7882.75. Then I'll get a picture but not a good one, sort of indistinct and "feathery". if i go down to 7878.1 (1.9Khz below the published freq which is I think what you are suppose to do?) I get nothing.

Any ideas what's going on? ??
