There was an issue with the DVRs in the K3s. I had to return
mine to have internal firmware updated. The required firmware
cannot be installed by the end user. In the config menu check
the firmware version of the "dr" mine is 2.05 after the repair.
Also check the version number several times. Prior to the
repair, I would see 0.05 and then 1.0 then 2.0. There was no
consistancy to the firmware no. in Config Menu
I believe you can send the DVR back by itself. I did not as I
had another issue that also needed repair.

meters (other antenna and other amplifier) and I cannot

I will try to remove and re-seat the DVK board
if anyone do no have some other suggestions.
How did you use it and how frequently did
it fail Joe?
Did you have a logger running on a PC and use it to activate
the DVK using the appropriate macro commands? If this is
true, I would test repeatedly with no or low RF output into a
Or, did you use the K3 M1 button? If this is true, I would
remove and re-seat the DVK board.
I have never had my DVK fail on either K3 regardless of the
method I use to start it. I use it almost daily.
