Hello
My antenna switch stop following by FlexRadio. Only manually control works.
Radio and switch connected to the same network. Antenna application can see the radio and connected. When I change the band nothing happens
Any ideas?

Has the AG address changed? can you ping the AG address ok Yuri?  Have you checked the AG  setup screen to insure the Flex is configured ok?  Router need a reboot?    Have you tried a reboot of the AG via the App? Here are just a few things I would check.   If AG is located at  a Remote site, make sure the remote Router is set up to port forward the  necessary port (Usually 9007 TCP)

Ah.. you said manual control works so you can see the unit via the App and Lan then..  I would concentrate on the AG setup to insure the Flex is actually assigned to a port A or B (or Both if SO2R) of the Antenna Genius.

Larry, sorry for kind of late reply. Probably port forwarding need to be done at new router, since all was worked with old one.
I will have some time playing at weekend

I find the problem. AG not working if SmardSDR not running.
Now another question.
I’m using Maestro for remote operations how can I use AG automatically? If I will use USB cables connected from radio to AG, not sure If i be able to use few antannes at one band ?

AG can be used automatically, without needing SDR running, if you use the USB function on the radio.  The best configuration is the BIN to provide the Band Data from the radio to the AG directly.  Connect both Ant1 and Ant2 to the respective AG serial ports and the AG antenna selection becomes very flexible and you can assign your antennas in many combinations.   I always like to use the AG Application also in order to monitor the AG antenna connections.  Of course this requires a PC of some type but then again dont you use one already for logging?
