Thanks to new CAT you can run multiple S-meter as many the slices are.

"bellissimo" Works perfect. I like the ability to adjust the AVG Smeter and the Peak Hold feature!

Works very nicely!  Thanks.
I have it running on two slices.
Adjustable hold and averaging makes it very nice.

Thank you very much, Beppe.  Your art work for Flex and Perseus is absolutely stunning.  The three dimensional effect and the shadows make a very nice image.

It might not be compatible with my setup. It works FB, but the Meter face is sort of tiled looking on the computer screen. Bummer!

Thank you Beppe!

I installed this for the first time and had no trouble. Looks and works great.

Is it possible to add an argument to specify the COM port so I can create a shortcut like
"Smart S-Meter V16.exe 8"
for COM8 and other ports for additional slices?

It would be easier to startup than having to reconfigure for more than one meter each time.

Thanks
Danny

I would like the ability to save the meter settings and have it associated with an icon.  As I start a pan adapter I can click on a unique icon and have the a meter start with the correct com port settings started.

You can do that already in the latest version by passing the correct arguments on the command line in the shortcut, and changing the Icon as well.

Help!!  I have a meter then pieces of 3 other meters. Example the working meter to the right half of a meter, below part of the top of a meter, and lower right is the top left corner of a meter. What did I screw up?

Thanks 
Jim

Same here. It does work great on my Windows 10 machine where I'm at 1440 by 900. Its my Mac running bootcamp and Windows 7 where I have the same problem you do. I'm on the OSX side of my Mac and will report the resolution when I reboot.

As suspected, my Windows 7 in bootcamp is using my iMac monitor at 1920 By 1080.

I've not had luck with changing the display size yet.Shows the same amount of stuff, but just takes up less real estate on the screen. What I want to do I now need to log off before seeing if it works.

I'll let you know if I have any luck.

Eureka! Try this Jim:

When I tried making my icons smaller - they were at 125 percent -  I changed them to 100 percent. I had to log out. Logging back in, The icons were smaller, as well as the windows. But the S-Meter is now juuuuussst right. Beautiful.

Right click - Screen resolution - make text and other items larger or smaller, then select 100 percent.

Now my biggest dilemma is modern or classic look. 8^)

That did it, however I changed mine from 125 to 150 and that worked. If you don't mind, one other question. On my 6300 I had 2 S-meters working off slice A but none working for slice B. Any ideas?

You have to have a CAT port for each slice, then a meter for each CAT port.

I also have Auto Switch to TX turned off so that they stay where they are.
