Transverter Causing TX Profile Loss and Failure to Boot....Any Insights?
First, some background:
I run two multiplex stations on my Local LAN with a Flex 6600. One Client is Windows Smart SDR, usually running two slices on HF FT8.
The second Client is a Maestro, running two slices for working satellites (2M and 70CM) or HF phone / a local 2M repeater.
I never shut down my Flex Server.
I recently had a need to do a soft shutdown and restart of my Flex 6600. When it restarted my TX Profiles and Transverter Settings were missing. I did a hard factory Reset and re-imported my profiles, settings, and Transverter settings. All appeared good.
So, to test, I did another soft shutdown/restart, and again the TX profiles were lost, except, this time on restart, when the GUI client connected, the Flex 6600 tripped off and showed two blinking green lights, "failure to boot".
Opened a ticket. Flex sent me a new SD Card.
New SD Card was installed, but the same problem, after I imported the profiles and did a soft shutdown/restart several days later.
I did another hard reset but, this time, I built everything from scratch...TX Band Settings, Mic Profiles, TX Profiles, and Global Profiles. No Transverter Settings yet. Now, all good, including soft shutdown/restart. Ran great for a week.
And Now, a week later:
I entered one set of Transverter settings...and all heck broke loose again. Lost the TX profiles, boot failure upon GUI Client connection, all following soft shutdown/restart.
Any similar experiences out there? I know there has been a lot documented, with no solutions, for the loss of TX profiles.....could this be similar? Or thoughts on other causes related to the transverter settings?
A Ticket, with Flex, has been in play for some time now, but Flex must be busy....no response so far on this updated information. They want me to return the Flex for a hardware checkup....but they caution, these types of problems are difficult to find and costly when out of Warranty...so I am not keen on that idea for now.
