SmartSDR for IOS Connection Issues

Latest IOS version V1.0.2 D1.4 seems to have a bug.  I'm unable to "Disconnect a User" when bringing up the app.   If my 6500 is connected to either my Windows 10 Computer or my Maestro within my home network and I run the IOS App, the app scans and finds my 6500 however it does not show its in use and I get no option to disconnect a user.   If I select the 6500 the app appears to connect to the radio but SMARTSDR continues to run on the Windows 10 computer or the Maestro?  The app displays the panadapter and shows the active slice but there is no audio and the waterfall section is blank.   I've also noticed the Discover Option on the app no longer works??  If Discover is selected I get a "Searching Error".   These issues have appeared since the update to the app.

Just tested my setup here and everything works OKAY that you described wasn't working correct on your setup.

I'm sure you already know this but here goes anyway.

Maybe try power off the radio for a few minutes and if that doesn't help try hard resetting the radio then you'll have to reload your backed up profile to get your settings back.

If that doesn't work then you may have a issue with the IOS app settings and you'll have to email Marcus.

I'm running a FLEX6700 on 2 separate win10 machine,,Maestro, and IOS V1.0.2.D1.4 APP.

Hi Cal,

I think I discovered what was going wrong here. When Scanning or when using a fixed IP, the App indeed doesn't recognize another existing connection. Tim also discovered a similar and related problem.

So if there is a chance, either use the Discovery mode or keep in mind that SmartSDR - Windows has to be disconnected before trying to connect with my App.

I will fix this with the next update.

Thanks for the reply Marcus!  I really enjoy using your app!  It's very easy to use and lots of fun working remote!
