Hi,

I recently replaced my 6300 with a 6500. Since then I have noticed that sometimes when I start the radio from cold it randomly fails to load any profile. Dont recall seeing this odd behavior before changing the radio.

I'm using the latest SSDR in W10 with all updates applied. No other issues apparent. It happens maybe 2-3 times out of every 10, but only when cold starting the radio.

Closing SDR and reopening the app is fine. In other words, it only happens when SSDR is sat waiting for the radio to complete the start-up calibration sequence.

I can tell it's not loading a profile as the display settings such as FPS, averaging, and display gain/rate are not being recalled. It is an though it fails to load any profile at all. Manually loading a profile then sorts it out, but it is a PITA.

Hi All,

Looks like I have found the culprit. I use a Behringer CMD Micro Midi controller with the app from William Hemingsen. When I prevent Williams CMD Java app from starting up automatically in my script, then the problem disappears.

I had also noticed other odd things whilst this app is running such as MOX going to ON when switching bands whilst VOX is engaged.

The CMD app also has some strange degrading effect on UDP network packet loss/quality as reported in SSDR, this may then account for the odd behavior outlined above.

So, for now the app is out of favor. Will report back if the problem comes back in any form.
