SSDR 1.3 and Flex 6500. Did hard reset of radio after upgrade and also cleared persistence memory.

When pushing the power button on Flex it still has long delay before shutting down.

This is still not fixed.

I noticed this as well.  In fact, it's worse now on my 6300.  Usually, if I had transmitted, the radio would shut down fast.  Now, it doesn't matter if I transmit or not.  It takes a very long time to power off.

I'll write this up as a new defect for SSDR v1.3.

BTW, in the mean time, there is no real harm in pressing and holding the power button for a forced shut down.  We have done this hundreds of times a day during development and test.

My 6300 now has no shut down indicator and the light remains green (solid) and not blinking for approximately 30 seconds before shutting down since the upgrade to 1.3.

Tim,  Have been doing that and yes it does shut down the radio, but, I have to shut the power down, because I get a loud and continuous thump thumping from the audio.  I then restart the 6500 and do a shutdown at which it shuts down properly.
