3.5.8 freezes at shutdown

ka9ees Member ✭✭✭

This is more of an annoyance than anything. I'm running my 6600M in SmartControl mode. When I shutdown SmartSDR it freezes. The rig remains active on whatever frequency I was on.

I was just switching to run the rig from computer to the front panel. SSDR froze. When I activated the panel it came up in MultiFlex. I then had to stop SSDR with the task manager. MultiFlex then went away.

I just noticed I'm getting UHE on CAT. CAT works fine once you stop the program and restart. Just not clear on what is happening here.

    UHE sounds like a unhandled error which is exactly what I saw after I upgraded to 3.5.8. Did your error look like this?

    @Mick W8BE Yes it did.

    So did mine and I lost about half of the CAT ports and had to manually restore them.

    I experienced this problem recently. I switched to SmartControl while running SmartSDR on my pc. Everything was working fine. After several hours, I decided to close SmartSDR and just run the radio ( 6600M) from the front panel. When I tried to select " Operate " I found that the front panel was not responsive. I powered the radio off. ( but, not my power supply) The front panel remained on and unresponsive. I hit the power button and everything seemed to be working. Except, the front panel was still on the SmartControl display and unresponsive. I could connect to the radio from my pc with SmartSDR and everything worked fine. Exiting SmartSDR on the pc still would not make the front panel responsive again. This time I powered the radio off and waited a few minutes and powered the power supply off. I waited several minutes and turned everything back on. Everything was working correctly. The front panel was working. And when I switched to SmartSDR and SmartControl, it worked fine. I left it running like that overnight. The next morning I exited SmartSDR and selected Operate from the front panel without any problems. Everything worked like expected. I have yet to be able to reproduce the problem even though I have tried several times. I never got any kind of error message in SmartSDR, or the radio itself. I just hope this isn't a sign of a potential problem coming up.

    Someone on the Community reported the same problem some time ago. Supposedly a Help Desk ticket was opened up. But, no resolution was ever posted. I may try opening a Help Desk ticket just document the problem even though it may be a rare occurrence. I wish SmartSDR either on the pc or the radio had some kind of error logs we could access. That might explain issues like this. Or, at least, provide developers information if it is code related instead of hardware related.
