I went on vacation this week and enjoyed listening to my 6300 via my laptop or iPad Pro but Thursday night I noticed the radio was no longer available. I pinged for it, nothing, nada zippo.
When we got him last night I went straight downstairs and say the power supply was on but the 6300 wasn't. From Thursday night to just then a lump was in my throat thinking it died or something.
I pressed in the power switch, it blinked green for the usual amount of time and was online. I powered up the Maestro and all is well. It's still powered on and working so I'm guessing it crashed on Thursday at some point and shut down. It is after all a server with an OS, I just didn't think it would do something like this.
Has this happened to others? Is there a log I can look through like an event viewer to see what caused it?
If this could have been power interruption I never would have posted about the shut down. :)
I should have mentioned this. The Power Supply for the 6300 is plugged into a 1500VA APC UPS plus the house had no power interruption as my UPS shows smooth power the whole week, it alarms on brown outs and other out of norm operations.
Could this have been a OS crash?
Mike, agreed, I need to get the remote start configured.
I now have a wifi AC switch and relay installed to control my 6500 remotely. It hasn't happened again. If you don't want to use a remote switch, you can short the RCA input and enable remote control and it wil automatically restart after the power cycles.
The disadvantage is that even if the rig is off, it will turn ON if the DC power to the rig goes from off to on. There is no "remain in the state it was in when power was interrupted" option.
There was no power interruption and I have not used the remote RCA port. My UPS logs show no fluctuation in power last week.
My question since we know there was no power brownout or outage is still this, is it possible the OS crashed enough for it to power off, if not what else aside from power may have caused it?
