Re: 2.7.0

LarryW... If you are using a Cat 5 Ethernet cable try switching to a Cat 6a cable. Cat 6a is rated for 10 gigabit speed and is shielded. I had the same issue of Thetis locking up intermittently and the Cat 6a cable fixed it. I have not had a lock-up since switching to Cat 6a five months ago. Carl NX5T

Re: Voicemeeter Potato (VMP) is here!

Somebody needs to tell me why running VAC is better then analog audio. I have none of the issues I read about with VAC and I think my audio is fine. I have no latency issues when using RX1 and RX2 simultaneously. No additional load on my system (which is more then capable). I'm not being a smart ass...

Re: 2.7.0

Richie...
2.7.0 a2 loaded and running great.
DPS/Options/ Filter size for SSB and General/ADC settings didn't carry over. Minor inconvenience.
Fyi... All previous lock-up issues appear to have been resolved with change from Cat 5 Ethernet cable to Cat 6a shielded cable.

PowerSDR acting erratically

Here is a short video of PowerSDR displaying some strange behavior causing relay opening and closing of short duration. Resetting the database has solved the problem. The database was reset, then an older database was imported to reload most of my settings. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zu_w8wkYNW...

Just when I thought I FINALLY had P2 and Thetis dialed in I've started experiencing lock-ups again. They are occurring so often I had to go back to P1 and PowerSDR to operate. I ran FW pre8 and Thetis 2.6.9 b6 for SIX WEEKS without a single sec error. I have tried numerous different combinations of ...
