It must be late in the day or I am just losing it. I can't quite understand what this datasheet is saying for input voltage level. I am running my 74HC245 at 3.3V. I have the OE tied high, but mistakenly tied it to a 10K pull up resistor. It appears that I am not getting high enough to disable the OE with 10K. I understand I should be using something like a 4.7K resistor instead. However, when I read the data sheet, it seems to state that the minimum high voltage at 4.5V VCC is 3.15V but typical is 2.4V. That doesn't seem to make sense to me. If the minimum it recognizes for HIGH is 3.15V how can typical be below this at 2.4?

Here is how the control signal goes to the ULN2803.
