My hope is that someone is paying attention to all of this discussion, meaning the talk about intermittent flakiness of CAT and DAX, and that these features have a prominent spot on the drawing board.
It would be nice to hear something from FRS in lieu of a fix.
Good luck, Guy
It helps if you describe your PC, Operating System, Amount of Memory, and the versions of software that are not playing well, as well as which Flex-6x00 model and any clues on what you were doing when it crashed. It is also worth knowing how long the setup was running and what actually happens when it crashes.
I suffered with a marginal setup crashing SmartSDR/CAT/DAX/DDUTIL, which vastly improved when upgraded. In the process of replacing the offending machine in total, which should improve things better.
The first upgrade process came out of sharing the full info, and some feedback from FRS that I might be skimpy in available system resources.
They could give an insight because they had enough data to make a diagnosis.
Just a suggestion, as it can't hurt to share enough details to make your issue actionable.
And fresh only counts with veggies.
Let's figure it out OK. If it is flexes problem we all would be bemoaning
Cat and DAX. excluding any and all known flex problems works.
Will can it beget better I'm sure flex will tweak and tweak. Everything.
However the computer has produced glitches. 90%. Of the time.
My Flex -6700 performance is 99% of the time. The one per cent failure was cause by Microsoft update failure when the local power company was hit by lighting.
Since SmartSDR v1.2 my F6.7K sees DAX and CAT without having to click them on. They see the radio automatically when the I/O switch is pushed on.
I then click on HRD v6.2 and it is automatically seeing by all the other required software. The rotor control, DM780, Logs etc... They functions' without my intervention; they come up and are ready for operations.
I do not use DDUtil; there is no need. That is, unless you have amplifiers or other devices that requires a specific function not yet available from Flex.
