Re: Yaesu rotor control stops working, locks up DXView

One update - 

I had been using the DXView selection for "Yaesu" rotor - and it worked.  Using the ERC software tool I selected the DCU-1 Hygain protocol, and have changed the DXView rotor selection to HyGain.  That works, and I'll keep it running to see if that is a better selection.

This has happened twice now, so not a one-off event.

I tried to turn the Yaesu rotor using DXView and it didn't respond.  I manually tuned it and it worked fine.  The rotor is a Yaesu G-450A with the aftermarket ERC interface.  

I opened the DXView config and unchecked the enabled box.  After a few moments DXV stopped responding.  Task Manager can't kill it, even the details tab showing processes can't kill it.  TM shows it using 120k of memory, the CPU is at 15% utilization.  

I tried the ERC standalone tool but the Com port is locked in use by DXV.  Still, the interface has been working fine with N1MM Rotor.  

Not sure what is happening, but a re-boot seems like the only way out of this.
