Problem With USB Devices Connected to FLEX 6600M after 3.3.29 Upgrade
Yesterday I updated to 3.3.29 on my Flex 6600M. All seemed to go OK until I noticed that the USB devices connected to my FLEX were no longer working.
I have 5 USB devices connected (i.e. 2 WX0B band decoders, 2 Elecraft KAT-500 tuners, and 1 Elecraft KPA 500 amp). One is connected to USB Port #1 on the Flex, and the other 4 our connected to USB Port #2 using a hub.
Using SmartSDR, I can see the 5 USB Cable entries listed but they are greyed out. If I unplug all 5 devices, wait a minute or two, and then plug them back in one at a time, they show up in the summary and they now work. However, the next time I turned the radio off and back on again, the USB devices did not work and all entries in the USB list were greyed again.
I did try a factory reset (after saving my profiles) and re-entered the info for the 5 USB devices again in SmartSDR. It did not help.
Any ideas about what may be causing this problem? I thought about downgrading back to 3.2 but really don't want to do that.
