This is always required on my system at startup of SSDR regardless of SSDR version. I am connecting to my LAN via ASUS wireless Ethernet adapter with 100% signal strengths and <1ms delays. However, I always have to cycle SDRCAT to get the radio to show in the SSDR startup panel so I can connect to it. Been searching the archives but have not found any answer as to why this is happening. Has anyone else encountered this "problem". I am just trying to figure out why I always need to go through this extra step of either opening/closing or closing/opening the CAT Icon before the Radio Icon appears for me to connect to? I have not found any other reports of this so maybe its the wireless connection... SSID broadcasts are not inhibited.
