Random, 1-5 second pauses of RX - happens every few minutes. System is a 3 core AMD, Windows7 32 bit. Resource monitor shows no resource contention, there is plenty of free memory, no IO or network bottlenecks. This is on a 6300 running one slice, in DIGI-U at 14076.
This happens regardless of system activity. It just randomly freezes, clients consuming DAX see no audio, then it starts running again.
Never saw it once with 1.3.8
Definitely something to try and fix in the next release if it can be repro'd by engineering.
1.) Open the DAX Control Panel and see if there are any channels enabled (button is yellow) but no slice is attached to it.
2.) If you have loaded SmartSDR on any other PC that connects to your network, DAX auto-loads at boot time. Please check DAX on those PCs too. You can prevent DAX and CAT from auto-loading at boot time by deleting the shortcut in the All Programs->Startup folder. You will just have to start CAT and DAX manually usibg the program shortcut icons in All Programs->FlexRadio Systems->SmartSDR v1.4.0
3.) Let me know if you are using REMOTE audio or not.
Sometimes the waterfall is freezing up and leading to a full disconnect, too. So...guessing this is some sort of data connectivity problem? The Ethernet line from my Flex 6300 goes straight into an Ethernet-to-Thunderbolt adapter and then into my Mac, where the interface bridged to my VMWare Fusion VM running Windows 7. Again, this is something I saw on 1.4 but not on 1.3.8.
[EDIT] -- I tried disabling DAX 1 just now because I wasn't using anything requiring a DAX channel. Worked good for a few minutes, and now my Flex has disconnected completely and no longer shows on the list of radios. Rebooted the Windows 7 VM and no help there. Rebooted the radio, and it showed up on the list eventually.
[EDIT 2] -- Even after a reboot of both the radio and the VM, drop-outs and disconnects are continuing to happen.
