This is easy to recreate. Start with SSDR (1.0.0) not running, and a 6500 not connected to the network.

1. Start SSDR.
2. Plug in the network cable.
3. After a few seconds, SSDR will see the 6500 and show it is available.

At this point if you try to start the radio, there is a delay of a few seconds before SSDR starts. Once it does start, there is no RX, and "+RX" is grayed out.

Simply restarting SSDR gets the same results. You have to power cycle the 6500 with it connected to the network to get it working again.

As per the original topic of this post, the software is working as designed, so it is being designated as "not a bug". If the network is not active (link established) when the radio is booted, you may not be able to access radio resources, such as panadapters and creating slices.

With the current version of SmartSDR, you must have the network cable connected and the radio seeing link before your boot up the radio. Changes to the current networking behavior, such as connecting the Ethernet cable after the radio boots up should be entered as an Idea topic.
