IPAD 4 freezes and flickers back and forth between Slice A and B, I have already selected NET slow and reduced waterfall rate to the slowest, I have closed ALL open apps. Still have the same problem (running latest IOS version)

Timothy,

please try the following and let us know:

- Disable DX-Cluster autostart (in case you purchased the DX-Cluster tool)
- Go to Settings (on iOS) General -> Background App Refresh and tun it off (to see if this helps)
- Power cycle your iPad
- Power cycle your Flex Radio

Please note (not related to this issue): "Closing all open Apps" is a myth. If you close the various screens that appear after double tapping the home button, this is nothing else than removing entries from a browser history. These are not Apps running in the background which are then closed by closing these screen snapshots. Some websites and magazines are spreading this myth but that's not true.

Please keep us updated.

I raised a fault ticket 19618 about this exact same problem - clicking on the settings link and just returning to the pan-adapter without making any changes temporarily stops the jumping effect, but changing bands will trigger the effect again.

And, did you got it resolved?

And @Timothy: it would be nice if you could let us know what happened when following my suggestions.

Hi Marcus,

No nothing yet, I just assumed it was being looked into. I did all that you suggested plus more besides to make sure it was not the iPad or the Flexradio.

Ok..just had time to try again....seems to occur when changing bands...if two slices are present they rapidly switch back and forth...while that is s occuring snd I try to interact with screen, for example, switch antennas, the screen might lock up, if it locks up the waterfall still displays correctly. If I change the current state (whether iff ir on) of Dxcluster...it stops....
