6500 using version 1.3 running Windows 8.1 on Intel NUC i5 randomly freezes up and if you change bands there is no displayed signal or noise floor, essentially the radio is deaf. Restarting version 1.3 software, rebooting the computer does not resolve the issue. Shutting the radio down and restarting the 6500 does not resolve the issue. The issue is resolved by shutting the radio down and removing power from the radio for a few minutes. Please put this on your list of radio software bugs and Snits.
Both the 6500 and then Intel NUC are connected to the network. I have checked and there are no conflicts relevant the IP addresses. I will check to make sure the computer is not in the power save mode. Remember, the resolution to this problem is removing the power from the 6500. Merely shutting down and restarting the 6500 does not resolve the issue. It appears that it removing the power from the 6500 releases the snit. I believe the cables are in good order.
