Most likely a wi-fi issue. Change "net" to slow, reduce waterfall speed and display FPS. Should help. If not enough, you may need to change your wi-fi channel or network configuration.

No joy. Following your advice, I also checked my router settings. Took the channel selection off "auto" .
On the 2.4 side (renamed the 2.4 & 5g to 2 different names also) set channel 11, on the 5 to 157.
Applied, saved and closed out.
Also have elimated previous Windows using the 2 clicks on Home button and swiping up on each app.
Ithe one thing I noticed and not sure about is both iPads are using the same IP address. All my windows computers I've assigned static ip's too.
Bottom line is all remains the same. George's suggestion didn't work so back to the boards. Thanks.

If all of your devices are using the same IP address, the network will have serious connection issues. Allow your iPads and computers to get a DHCP address.

Thought I was logged in, no joy there either. Here we go again.
George: all the windows machines have their own unique ip addresses assigned to them.
What is happening on the 2 mini is if I log on with mini2' the last 3 of the ip is 164.
I log off 2 and bring up 4, the last 3 of the ip is 164.
The other digits of the ip are also the same.
For Michael, maybe the 3rd time will be the charm, wrote this twice didn't make it either time.
Running SSDR for IOS 1.02 with SSDR V1.84(latest ver).
I have 2 mini iPads (2 gen & 4 gen). Mini2 is running just fine.
Mini4 has a noise problem of a rushing or cutting in & out sound. Copy is impossible.
I have checked setti no joy. Followed George's advice, no joy.
As a last resort deleted the app from mini4 and reinstalled from the cloud, no joy.
Stuck on where to go next.
Thanks Marty W8AKS

I have a Linksys wrt1900ac router and in the wireless settings I had to turn off

the AC setting to 802.11g only @ 2.4 Ghz

and

802.11a only @ 5 ghz or I had the same choppy cutting in and out issue you speak of.

Basically I turned off the Mixed mode settings.

I was using an older Linksys wrt120n router with no issues so that's what got me to start messing with these settings.


I am using a iphone 6s, ipad pro 12.9 and an ipad 3... all three were doing the same thing until I changed my settings as described above.

I knew I would forget something.
Went into the router. Changed the 2.4 and 5 names to 2 different names so I could work on them individual ly. Changed the channel selection from auto to an assigned channel. Tried connecting the iPads to the different networks with no difference. No difference.

It don't make sense to me to turn the faster setting off but it works .

I can say that forcing my 5 GHz network from mixed 20/40/80 MHz channels to fixed 20 MHz channels made a huge difference when using SSDR on Win7 on my laptop. No idea why. It was Dave, WO2X's suggestion.
