FTDX101MP DX Commander "Receive Buffer Overflow"


Bill - AK6A
 

I am using the current version of DXCommander with a Yaesu FTDX101MP. With the recent update I have been getting messages in the ErrorLog.txt stating "Receive Buffer Overflow". Any ideas on where to look to correct this issue?

Thanks!

+ Commander 14.7.1 was publicly released on September 30. When did you update to it, Bill? When did Commander first begin generating errorlog.txt file entries?

+ The "Receive buffer overflow" events are occurring roughly every 1-3 hours. Possible causes include

1. RFI corrupting CAT communications when transmitting (temporarily reduce RF output power to see if this reduces the error rate)

2. intermittent CAT communications caused by a loose connector or a cold solder joint (wiggle cable connectors to see if this causes errors)

3. the load on your PC occasionally becomes so heavy that it cannot keep up with the CAT data being sent by your radio (reboot Windows and run a minimal set of DXLab applications; does the error rate change?)

+ If none of the above possibilities pan out, terminate Commander 14.7.1 and revert to the version of Commander you were previously running.

+ Do "Receive buffer overflow" events occur when you run the previous version of Commander?

Hi Dave,

    Thanks for the information on possible causes. It looks like CAT RFI interference might be the most likely issue since I also made some station changes about that same time that might be causing that. I will install some more RFI filtering at my station and see if that corrects the problem.

    Thank you for your excellent software!
