Not upgrading to SmartSDR v3.2.34 - Remote Operator Question

K6JV Member ✭✭
edited May 2021 in SmartSDR for Windows

Is there any danger in not upgrading to the new version?

Currently running v3.3.31 and not having any issues. The radio is located on a mountain top that I would not be able to get to for several weeks as I have no way to remotely factory reset the radio.

The previous version also required a cold reboot but I was able to upgrade successfully without having to factory or cold reboot the radio.

Is the factory reset a must requirement for this new version?

    For all remote operators, we do ask that you wait until you can do a proper reset on the radio unless there is some reason that you must upgrade.

    I did my remote, remotely, without issue. Odds are you'll be fine, but I would just wait as a matter of good practice.

    Thanks Mike, I do have a PC at the remote site on the same LAN.

    When you did yours remotely, did you have to do a hard reset?

    I do have a switch connected to the remote plug on the Flex. Would really like to not have to travel to the site.

    Read Tim's release notes. It is recommended to do a factory reset after upgrade then import older (3.1.12) profiles and do not use the 3.2.31 profiles.

    You will be better off waiting until a site visit if 3.2.31 is working now.
