If pre8 works for you then it is not your PC.

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 FW and Thetis with no luck. P1 and 3.4.9 run flawlessly. I was running FW 2.0b and Thetis 2.6.9 1/22/2020 when the troubles began. I went back to pre8 and b6 but no change. Scratching my head, again. :-(

Carl,

Not a problem with P2 firmware. Start a new topic under the PowerSDR sub-forum, please.

Thanks,

Scott

Do you not hear a relay engage ?
It will not transmit a carrier with the ptt only

This is why they have a "KEY" jack on the front. Read the manual..............

Fabio,

Is this only a problem with 2.0b?

Hi Fabio,

I have tried to reproduce this on my 7000DLE running Orion_MkII_Protocol_2_v2.0b.rbf
and cannot.

I put a switch on PTT-IN (as per your attached photo) and when I switch it on PTT works
on all modes including CW.

BUT, if the CW QSK is enabled it does not. Could that be the case for you?

Hello Rick,
i tried the Thetis 2.7.0 (thanks to DL8LAQ Norbert) and PTT in CW is ok..

back to 2.6.9 and reset db... no PTT

i think is a 2.6.9 problem...no firmware.

What do you think?

Hi Rick,
found the difference between 2.6.9 and 2.7.0 db....

In Thetis Setup General->Options->Options 1

i checked: "All mode mic PTT"

Now is ok in 2.6.9 too

Now is ok sorry for the inconvenice

FYI, that's enabled by default.
