The new SmartControl has me interested. I have a 6600 and have an opportunity to buy a 6400M on the cheap. Can I run SmartControl on the 6400M to control SmartSDR on the 6600? Trust me, I have my valid reasons. Or, for almost the same cost buy a new Maestro?
Interesting .. but I don't see why there are restrictions if you are using SmartControl as a *control* platform only. No mic, no speaker ... just operational control. As an aside, I could have my 6600 and 6400M (or any other 6000 series radios) on my network and control them individually using SmartControl on a Maestro (Normal or Multiflex modes). Correct?

Smart control is a feature that allows a Maestro or M series radio to use the button and knob interface to control another instance of SmartSDR. When in SmartControl mode, the Smart control window with the station select menu that controls the instance of smartSDR for windows you are controlling remain on the screen. You can however select meters, that will allow you to place quite a number of meters on the screen simultaneously with the smart control window. Thats how the product works right now.
I hope it's an easy fix and can be adapted and that the Flexradio team is monitoring this and making notes.
One must understand that mirroring a scaleable windows application on another that is less scaleable with strict screen real estate is a bit more of a programming challenge.. but I know for a fact that the programming team is reading these posts and hearing you. As someone who would like this feature as well, i hope the team are able to put it on the list for a future enhancement. but for now.. SmartControl has added a new dynamic to the product that I and quite a few others find extremely useful. In the meantime, I think there are a couple of third party applications that achieve some level of mirroring on the flex ecosystem, but I have not tried that feature so would hope that one of those developers may chime in with details.
