Out of curiousity, I checked the support list for my UniSite system. Sure enough, it supports the 2708's. However, it won't do 2704's.
I suspect that support for multi-voltage devices like the '08's would only be found in very old device programmers (like the Model 19), and in much later 'pin-driver' technology type systems (like the UniSite), with little or no crossover in between the high and low-end.
Keep the peace(es).
