6600 temporary freezes with 2.3.7 SW

  • Updated 3 months ago
My 6600 arrived week ago and was working fine with 2.2.8 SW.
I installed 2.3.7 and I am observing temporary frezes for about 1 sec almost every time I move the frequency on SSDR. No Maestro connected.
6600 connected to a Ethernet switch.

My PC is pretty powerfull - Intel i7700 overclocked to 4600Mhz, 64Gb DDR at 3400Mhz, 1TB SSD, Windows 10 64bit

What was done sor far:
1. Power cycle PC
2. Power cycle 6600
Issue is still present.
With my limited time with previous SW I never noticed that issue.
Any input would be appreciated.
Thanks

I doubt it has anything to do with the software but you can always revert back use the previous version and see if it works fine

Thanks Steve for suggestion.
I cannot longer go to 2.2.8 as SSDR has only one option when I open 2.2.8 - "Update".
I do not have "Connect" option when I launch 2.2.8.
As I mentioned above I used 2.2.8 for a week before update. I defenetly would notice any delay, as currently with 2.3.7 it is pretty obvious.

Very interesting. I am direct connected and had the problem with 2.2.8. When it happened I would see the green bars drop from full to half then recovered. So far this has not happened with 2.3.7. I also have a full blown i7 Gen 8 machine so I know it is not on the computer side.

If you need to go back to 2.2.8, then you will also have to do the 'update' in order to get the firmware back to where it was with 2.2.8

Well, I do not want to go back. I would like to tests spots feature as soon as I am done with KH1 :)
As I stated before, since I am learing Flex over last week, I spent hours in front of the PC every day  and I would notice it with 2.2.8.
As soon as I installed 2.3.7 it is immediately started these freezes.
