VOX and MON state still do no persist beyond a power cycle, regardless of profile.

Steven, please take no offense, but a post that has only a blanket statement with no supporting detail is not constructive nor provides any possibility that we can address it effectatively.  It is like going to the doctor and saying "I'm sick" but not providing any information about your symptoms or allowing to be examined.

If there is a specific issue that you want to bring up, please do so by providing some context and detail.  Thank you.

Tim,

I just tested your profile example. I set MOX and VOX to on. I then saved a mic profile. Shutdown the radio, shut down SSDR and restart both. The Same Mic profile is loaded upon restart but the MOX and VOX have not persisted.

Regarding the dirty shutdown. I could live with that, and understand the SD issues that make that a bad idea. I therefore suggest the global ability to determine if the radio comes-up by default, or not, i.e to determine the POST behavior without manual intervention.

I have spent over 30 years in IT tech support (MCSE) and can tell you that systems that don't revert to previous machine state are very bad news for both support staff and customer relations.

If you select the global profile that the mic profile is linked to, does that restore the VOX and MON on state?

No!  and to be sure I just saved a Global, a Transmit and a Microphone profile all with the MOX and VOX on at the time. Reboot and made no difference. A Bug?

I think it just might be a defect, so I have entered this problem report into our bug tracker (defect #3614) for additional investigation. Thank you for the defect report.

Mine reboots into VOX mode. I've made certain all my profiles don't have that since.

Persistence in general is unchanged from my experience. Was this supposed to be addressed in the v1.7 since the focus was more for Maestro?

Hopefully with Maestro delivered we will see SmartSDR enhancements everyone can take advantage of. Looking forward to the WAN/secured Internet access and not having to setup a VPN as a solution.

I had a case open previously that explained them. It was closed has being compiled in the upcoming release fixes.

I can try to make a video demonstrating. Most of it happens using the Band switcher the options in the RX (right panel) will get lost moving back and forth between the bands. If on 40 and the NB,NR, WNB and AGC are set one way and switch to another band with them set differently but don't have to be when I go back to the 40 those setting may be different then how they were left. The other odd occurrence is it will sometime have MOX enabled causing unexpected transmitting. Since the release notes don't indicate these types of issues were apart of the update I am not expecting them to be fixed, yet.

Steven - am I correct tht you want MOX an VOX to  remain selected after a reboot? What you want, I would call a big problem.

@Ken

Could you be kind enough to explain to me why band changes are not equal?  This really threw me after a factory reset and is actually down in the bug tracker.

Personally, I would prefer all band changes to be treated equally. Maybe this is an example of a parameter that should be user-configurable

Tim, you can add the "Black" level adjustment to the persistence list.  Prior to 1.7 the software would always remember the "black" level setting but now when I power up it always goes to some preset level not of my choosing.  Thanks, Dennis, k0eoo

@k0eoo. I find it very difficult to get a handle on persistence. Things generally seem to work FB, then Flex seems to have a burp and several settings seem to revert to some long forgotten state.

One last update.

Items seem to be recalled ("persisted") much more reliably now that I only have one Global Profile listed.
