Re: 200D Protocol 2 users: what say you?

Not sure what you would test, Phil.

It's unlikely it is a LAN issue if all of your equipment is rated for GigE speeds.

Re: ANAN-100B will not key amp

There are no jumpers associated with PTT Out functions.

Has he confirmed that his PTT output transistor is not fried?

This is an amplifier interface related question--moving it to the amp interface subforum.

Re: 7000 and 8000 Protocol 2 users: what say you?

Thanks, Jay. The streams from the hardware to the PC are UDP. Each packet has a sequence number. If one or more are missing then that will cause a Seq error. The numeric associated with the Seq error tells you what stream or streams are affected (there is one for each DDC, and for mic audio). UDP is...

Re: 200D Protocol 2 users: what say you?

2.6.2 is a better choice than 2.6.0.

Did you try with a reset database (always the obvious question)?

If 2.6.2. and 1.5 don't work with a reset database then either you've got network problems at GigE speed or you've got an outlier piece of hardware.

Re: Angelia networking weirdness - using Ethernet broadcast address

Mike, I'm not questioning any of your observations. As I noted previously, if the network is healthy we have to assume your board is broken. There is a JTAG connector on the board. Most people use an Altera USB "Byteblaster" pod when working with it as it is known compatible with the free ...

OK, guys with the BIG radios: P2 version 1.5 has been posted for some time. Who's running it, what do you think? Stable? Throwing any Seq errors?

You can leave off anything that is obviously Thetis related.

There are no LAN related jumper settings other than the bootloader jumper. However, we at least know that the radio does work occasionally and that it does accept fi...

Hi Tom,

Yes, streaming only when operating. It's a crapshoot ;)

Akitas are fabulous dogs. I have three now!

Be prepared to start with a totally reset database and updated it manually when 2.6.3 is released. There are just too many changes for the importer to deal with.

Re: PureSignal 2.0 unreliable with Thetis v2.6.0

The latest available P2 firmware for the 14-bit Hermes is old and VERY "alpha". It may or may not provide good PureSignal performance for you. You might try upgrading to the latest Thetis, 2.6.2. However, if that does not work, you will have to be patient and wait for newer 14-bit Hermes f...

See https://apache-labs.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=2387 If it is an ANAN-100 and NOT a 100D then it is 99.9% certain to have a Rev. 15 board. If it is an ANAN-100 and NOT a 100D then the RX2 connector does nothing. If it is a 100D then the RX2 connector is attached directly to ADC2.

Re: INSTALLING OR RUNING NEWEST THETIS CORRUPTS DATABASE ON POWERSDR ON SAME PC.

Tom,

This is clearly a bug in PowerSDR. I can only suggest that you do not use features in a way that causes fatal database corruption until such time as the dev's decide to fix the bug.

Sorry I don't have a better alternative for you.
