Has anybody seen this before I was on 15M then started to jump around the bands to 10M, 12M then 17M and when I went back to 15M I did not have any audio! So I checked all the bands again and had audio on all the bands except on 15M still no audio. I had to deleat the slice A and use RX+ to get the audio back for 15M, Has anybody seen this?

I have had similar events a few times.  I just figured that I switched back and forth so rapidly that I confused the logic.  (changing to a new band before the rig was fully changed over from the previous one.)

I have also many times had "lost" or "orphan" slices...where I only had one pan and one slice open but couldn't open a second.  Or here I couldn't open a second pan. The solution was to open as many pans or slices as I could, then close them one by one, and start over.  I believe that they have identified this for fixing.

"I believe that they have identified this for fixing."

We have and we have applied fixes to SmartSDR v1.2 that we think will resolve the problem, but there still might be a few edge cases that we have not  yet identified.

Had cases where changing bands caused the audio to fade out in about 30 seconds.
Panadapter showed signals but no audio.
Change to another band and it might be okay. Certain ones would fade out after about 30 seconds.
Re-Booted the radio to fix.

I have also had cases where the APF got overruns or something and when I jumped about the bands a bunch and turned APF ON it shut all the audio OFF.  It took closing the slice and reopening to restore it.
