upgraded yesterday to smartsdr 1.1 and working well. i've just opened a new panadaptor and tried to go to antenna 2 on the second pan but when i do pan one changes as well to antenna 2. this also happens if i open a new slice receiver.

have i missed something here?

      If you have a 6500, then you have only one ADC to service all slices. This one ADC may be connected to only one antenna at a time.   If you have a 6700 then you have 2 ADC's each of which may be connect to either antenna and therefore slices may be connected to different antennas.

    i thought you can use ant 2 on another slice or panadaptor? i'm sure it worked before.

    It has never worked that way on a FLEX-6500.  There is only SCU which can only connect to one RX antenna port at a time.
