Mic Profiles

When I do a hard reset to my Flex 6400, and then import my last saved profiles export, all the default microphones are still there. I have to spend 5 minutes deleting each one. The reason I have to delete them, is that the list is alphabetical and some of my profile names end up at the bottom of the list. Quite a PITA.

    The Default Profiles are loaded From the Software during the reset. Not during the Import of saved Profiles.

    You can delete them FIRST before you Import your saved Profiles.

    It will be easier to go down the list and erase the ones you don't want.

    THEN import your saved profiles, and you will have less clutter.

    Sorry, this does not solve anything Dave.

    I'd like to see importing overwriting the whole list.

    How often do you initiate a hard reset? I have operated nearly every day over the past four years and average no more than once or twice per year.

    Hey Neil,

    Thanks for your response.

    I live in the country. Our power goes off averaging about once a week. Sometimes so briefly that I don't think the flex completely shuts down. And it locks up or otherwise will not work properly.

    And the only way around this is to do a hard reset and restore from a backup.

    I hope this answers your question.

    I also get a lot of these power shutdowns, just long enough to require resetting the clocks on the microwave and stove. Everything else had battery backup. I put a UPS in the shack, mostly for the flex. So the UPS feeds the Isobar surge protector, which feeds the 12V power supply which feeds the flex.

    FWIW, I run the computer and the FLEX through a UPS as I also have brownouts, short drop outs, and power outages. The UPS will do a managed shutdown when the battery gets too low. Haven't had any issue (system is in Florida, the USA lightning capital :-))
