Any word about a TGXL Utility for the Mac?

When running remote with the Mac, it would be very useful to see the TGXL utility screen and controls.

    Thanks for the reply. I know I am not missing anything. I will hope someone is working on an IOS or MacOS version for us. -Brian, W9HLQ

    Would be nice if it were integrated within SmartSDR for MAC as well.

    I have contacted 4O3A direct about this, just this week gone. They advise me that they are working on the problem:...........This is their reply:-

    For now, there is only Windows Utility available.

    Mac version is in the making at the moment and hopefully, we will release it soon for both PGXL and TGLX after it passes all internal tests.

    Thank you for understanding.

    I am reasonably satisfied with the statement, so all we can do now is sit and wait for the release.

    I suspect that Marcus will provide enhancement within SSDR for Mac only once the 4O3A utility becomes available for Mac computers. There is nothing he can do until it is available.

    Looking forward to it!!

    Mike, my only warning is be careful if you take the program from 4O3A instead of Flex. This is a problem with two groups... As has be found in the TGXL Software. 4O3A developed their version but Flex has yet to release their version. There is a small issue reported in the 4O3A versus todays Flex Version... I guess there is little to no control over the Manufacture Versus the "Responsible" Group Versions. I know I certainly would not allow the possibility of having two different software versions with any issues. I don't want to chase the 4O3A Issues if what I have on my site is the fully tested and does not introduce End User Issues. Certainly a PIA for Flex in the Support Group. Just a thought....

    Richard.

    Now you have me a bit worried. I had downloaded the TGXL Utility from 4O3A website. Are you suggesting they are different? What is the small issue you mention?

    I am having some problems with my TGXL. Have a read of my topic headed Tuner Genius Failure. Do you think this may have something to do with my probs.??

    Mike... Sorry for the delay. Obviously there is something going on as Flex has NOT Released an upgraded the version on their site. Also a comment made on the group was that the the 4O3A Version "Blanked" or in the process of Upgrading from R1.1.6 that it changed or blanked that settings. So an operator spends the time and effort to program his bands versus antennas and performs the Tuning Process and then I upgrade and "all" the presets are gone.... You can see what can and will happen as far as Customer Service is concerned. You try to address one version or the other and not both...... Again... my thoughts and why has Flex NOT Released their or a 4O3A/Flex combined version?
