Re: SW2 software shuts down after random amoutn of time

I used to have my SW2 software freeze randomly with my FDM DUO. I was was using a external powered hub, but since plugging directly in to the computer USB port has been completely stable. Any disturbances on the external hub would crash the software.

This is a  familiar issue for me. 

If SW2 is used together with CSV userlist it will stop within an half hour. But not always in the same time.

Used without CSV Userlist I often found it the next morning (radio on for decoding DSC) it had stopped working. Both frozen screen or completely disappeared.

This is one of the reasons I do not use the perfect sounding SW2 software. I would love to use the software but it is to unstable and has several things that do not work as it should. I have made tickets for the faults in the software. But they are not addressed (yet, after 2 years)

Re: SW2 software shuts down after random amoutn of time

I've found that it happens from time to time.  Inconsistently, unpredictably, and without obvious cause.  Last night, for instance, at 0300 local time, the SW2 software was fine.  At 0930 local when I returned to the computer, the software was frozen.  (I believe that it is a software-thing because my S3 did not have to be restarted to resolve the shutdown.)  SW2 stops and holds the appearance of the SW2 window--it freezes with a static image in the SW2 window.  Usually, a rude word or two, shut SW2 down for 15 or 20 seconds, restart, and all is well. Very occasionally, and I have seen this running both an S2 and and S3, the hardware must be shut down and restarted to clear the problem.  Very, very occasionally I have had to reboot my computer, but that was with earlier versions of the SW2 software (running 3.49 here).

SW2 will run happily for days, including sleep modes, in my desktop (which has plenty of grunt) which is on 24/7, thus "occasionally."  "Without obvious cause" because there was no thunder or lightning, Windows last updated on 12 March, Norton did nothing unusual, and I've set the other programs to "ask first." 

Since I rarely record spectrum, the shut-downs are not fatal, just annoying.

Hi,
 
Is this happening when the PC is idle, i.e. when you are not using it at all?
 
SW2 used to crash quite easily (basically just disappear), when playing back IQ files and jumping quickly in the time scale. This symptom is almost gone now, but it did happen once yesterday with ver. 3.49 (High-end desktop PC, no Elad HW connected, playback from an external 12TB Seagate drive).
 
BR, Otso

Hello Srinivas,
 
please check Energy Settings of USB-Ports. in Devicemanager. In the Tab Ernergyoptions remove the Hook where Computer can switch off Device to save Energy.

Yes, the radio has literally just arrived. 

It did power on initially, but the functions in stand alone mode was really slow. 

I am using the supplied cable, I’ve checked the voltage and the connector and it all appears to be fine. 


Thanks

Bill - 
yes no screen savers and never power off (this is a desktop system).
thanks for the suggestions. Maybe the minimzed window bypasses the waterfall issue?

I assume you have turned off any screen savers and maybe set the Windows Power settings to “High Performance”. All just guesses.

Re: FDM-S3 restart after PC restart/power outage - question for support and other S3 users

Guido Schotmans
 

Hello Bjarne,

 

I’m using a SonOff in the power lead of my remote NUC. Dirt cheap and I didn’t notice RFI yet, but I’m not in an environment comparable to Norhtern Norway. Worth to give it a try.

 

73,

 

Guido.

Winston: Yes, in fact I have one. The problem is these devices emit lots of RFI, so I'm afraid it's not an option.
Richard: I was looking at devices like that, and I even found one with dual-voltage, EU-plug. The cost was rather prohibitive though, close to USD 300. There is a GSM device that was used a lot in Norway before rural broadband, I might check that one out.

Re: FM filter on FDM-S3

Larry Dodd
 

Srinivas,
You need an antenna. If you have FM stations close to you try a single meter long piece of wire connected only to the center antenna connection. See if you hear anything.  You need proper antennas for the bands your interested in.

Thanks for your responses.
I tested 1) turn off Lenovo, 2) turn off S3, 3) turn on Lenovo, 4) turn on S3. This worked.
So, in order to get the S3 up and running again, I need to be able to switch the S3 off and on via the internet.
Any suggestions how to go forward?

You can use a smart plug connected to the internet and use the plug app to control the power.
