No band change after using RTTY skimmer

After using RTTY skimmer I could not select a band. I was able to create a slice but the band change function still would not work. The cure was shutting down the radio and removing the power from the radio, waited one minute and restarted the radio, everything normal. Has anyone seen this problem.
The radio is a Flex-6500, Win7, 8Mb memory, SDR-Bridge V1.1.3.116 Beta and RTTY Skimmer V1.00. I don't think this is an FRS problem.

Does this behavior occur when you do not have these third-party applications connected?

First time I see this behavior. Does not occur on another software that I use.

Tim, SDR Bridge works great with CW Skimmer, no problems after using it. The RTTY Skimmer only uses two panadapters from the radio to run RTTY skimmer, no other software, so I believe the anomaly is in RTTY skimmer. I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem. Thanks

I'm experiencing the same problem. I've just spent the past hour trying to get RTTY Skimmer Server to work in preparation for for CQWPX RTTY contest. When RTTY Skimmer Server is running I am unable to tune outside of the IQ stream bandwidth or change band. I would have thought the Skimmer Server would adjust the IQ stream around the VFO but it appears fixed. Did anyone find out the cause it? is there an option in the RTTY Skimmer server or SDR-Bridge that I'm missing?
