Re: 2.6.8

Re: the network. The Anan is on it's own subnet and direct to the computer. However, the Ethernet card IS a Realtek TP-Link Gigabit PCI Express card. But it works without issue with P1 and OpenHPSDR 3.6.9. Would you still recommend switching to an Intel card? honestly, I dont know, it is just inter...

Re: Protocol 1 Programmer

Hi John, You have the correct programmer. The Protocol 1 Programmer latest release version is v2.0.10. This will allow you to flash the protocol 2 firmware into your ANAN that has protocol 1 firmware currently installed. Sounds kind of confusing but you have found what you need. If you like, you can...

Re: 2.6.8

Thanks Richie for adding AM/SAM to auto-switch TX Profile when the mode is changed in v286 c5. I didn't realize how much I missed that feature when I moved from PSDR mRX PS. It's all running smoothly here by the way.

Thanks for the implementation of the Bypass dropdown from the top menu and also the auto select of bypass with WB enabled. I can hear the relay click when I enable the WB display and it clicks again when I shutdown the WB display. Very slick!

Re: Antena selector relay fail.

If Scott's suggestion of trying different Protocol 2 versions of the firmware does not help, you might try moving from Thetis 2.6.7 backward to Thetis version 2.6.6. There seems to be something strange about the behavior of the Antenna matrix with v2.6.7, at least for me and several others. With my ...

Thanks for confirming that Phil. I've sort of given up on Protocol 2 for now, although I have found with my 200D that firmware version 1.7 works much better than v1.8 for me. The timing closure must be much closer to optimal for my FPGA as I get Pure Signal correction as soon as I start up (v1.8 wou...

Re: Do not use APIPA when programming an IP address!

Scott, As you said, who knows what mask assignment the ANAN actually has? Watching my ANAN subnet with Wireshark simply shows UDP packets happily going back and forth from 192.168.5.1 (the NIC) and 192.168.5.2 (the ANAN) with no cares at all. My guess is that if the ANAN and the NIC it is directly c...

Re: Do not use APIPA when programming an IP address!

The problem is that if you set the IP address of the ANAN with HPSDRProgrammer or Bootloader while the ANAN is directly connected and using the self-assigned 169.xxx.xxx.xxx APIPA address it will take whatever 192.168.x.x or 10.x.x.x IP address you program it with but it will retain the 255.255.0.0 ...

The advice posted by Chris is excellent and it is a good explanation for why some users are unable to make a static IP assignment work with a direct connection between their computer and their ANAN. I was not aware of the "sticky" netmask assignment of 255.255.0.0 that exists when an IP is...

Hi Neoklis, It doesn't sound like you did anything wrong as many of us have seen this.

If you change the file name so that it begins with the word Me...
