When left alone (no other user input) both displays (waterfall and panadapter bandscope go into hyperdrive. It is a very active and fast jitter. the waterfall, rather than being a constant scroll has bands of unredrawn lines. What's odd is this has happened twice when I've been away from the laptop. When I've returned and noticed it, just moving the mouse seems to allow it to settle down eventually. It has happened twice since I've upgraded. I did reboot both pc and 6500.  I did have an initial issue with DAX ch 1 but after toggling between ch 1 and ch 2, channel 1 started to show audio. After the initial post it occurred again, large areas of black (unpainted lines) in the waterfal and the bandscope was jittering worse than.....well, fill in the blank. This never happened with 1.3.0 or earlier.

This is proven to be fixed with 1.4. I am sure in the preceding paragraphs I described what I viewed as the likely scenario of, upon the screen going off the UDP data for the waterfall and bandscope were queued. I suspect this was done as part of 1.3.8. I believe that is what the issue was and with 1.4 it is resolved. Usually the person opening a bug is able to close it. I don't see an option for that.
