The inconsistant startups with ver 2.1.33 I have confirmed are definitly rig based and caused by an unreliable or confused bootup of my 6400M. It has now occurred 2 times yesterday and 1 time today. My non internet gigabit hardwired network connection plays no part in it.

The issue is when the rig boots up the rig is slow or not booting up reliably and misses the network connection then defaults to the please wait message. As soon as I see that message I hit the power button the rig shutsdown I wait 5 seconds hit the power button again and it boots up correctly going right to ver 2.1.33 showing the ready to go standalone screen on the 6400M directly.

I start the same way everytime I start the rig same connections and same equipment in the same order regardless of how I might change operation once it is ready to go.

So as most are being led that its their network causing issues I have proven to myself its not just like computers dont always startup correctly when booting guess what the 6400M relies on an internal computer to bootup correctly as well and now 3 times in the last 2 days it has not.

Just an annoyance thats increasing now but I know how to deal with it and whats causing it. So maybe the next update will make it more reliable.

Im just happy its not my network issue.

Please install SmartSDR v2.2.8 as there is a fix specific for the M model startup logic.
