Since installing Power SDR 1.5 on my 6300, I have experienced very long boot times.  Sometimes, it never finishes (or I give up after 5 minutes or more).  After a few power on/off cycles it has "so far" come back.  But, I wonder if something is dying?  It also takes longer on power off also (used to be 10 seconds, now more like 30).  I am running "remote" with the RCA plug to control actual boot up / boot down.

This is a previously reported issue.  https://community.flexradio.com/flexradio/topics/calibration-not-finished-led-power-flashes-without-...

If the radio is shut down by pressing and holding the power button until it shuts down, then immediately powered back on with a single press and release of the power button (not a press and hold), then the radio will start up normally. 

This will be fixed in the next release of SmartSDR.
