Hi, full update, ie software (03/09), firmware (79.8), and E-Coder2

In short : in CW, after running in a pile up (I give my call twice, every X secondes depending on the DX answers), the sotware is no longer responding while I TX.
I have performed 3 other tests, with no power output, and same issue
No message displayed, the software is just freezed with TX button "red", but the spots from the cluster are updated into the window, so it sounds it is just the CW/TX interface related
CW : from external keyer on the SunSDR DX : issue
CW : from TCI interface : same
CW : from Ecoder2 : not tested

FT8/FT4 : seems no issue (no HF out)
SSB : TXing for 5mn, them "PA protection" (no HF, Drive at 0): stopped at 5mn, them "communication lost", restart, and after 3s, again "communication lost" while doing nothing (RX mode)

So for CW, I can't use any more my SunSDR
Any hints?

otherwise : is it possible to reverse to previous version of software + firmware ?
Thanks ** 73

Hi Patrice,
I have exactly the same problem as you described.
It seems the "suspect" is E-Coder2. Please disconnect it from the PC and
everything works smoothly, until the programmers proceed to the necessary repair.

Hello
Good hint Agelos

1/ With E-Coder2 enabled : issue
2/ With E-coder2 disconnected : no issue (to confirm, but sounds OK)
3/ With E-Coder2 connected but not enabled : no issue (to confirm with more tests)
4/ With E-Coder2 connected, and Enabled and Ecoder-2(Monitor + Monitor in TX) Enabled : no issue
5/ same as "4", but E-coder2(monitors) disabled ; issue as describe (so back to congiguration "1")

I will continue to use with E-Coder2((Monitor + Monitor in TX) enabled to see if I can confirm this can solve the issue for now

Hi
more testing, and even "Monitor" ON (on Ecoder2), it hangs using N1MM
So without ECoder, thinking to run in CW contest is "No Way".
I hope a beta version soon.

Hi
5mn test, using N1MM : the CW issue remains, meaning the software hangs:
- Ecoder2 stays in PTT (red LED)
- software stays in TX mode
- no audio
Need to close software, and after a certain period, software can be restarted from the ExpertSDR3 Device Manager

CW : WinKey, connected to main unit
PTT : Winkey, connected to main unit
Headsed : connected to main unit

What to do to operate CW ? 73 Thanks

Hi Patrice
The issue seems to be between Ecoder2 and EESDR3 and with new CW core. It will be addressed but I guess it needs time.
I have Ecoder2 and Ecoder mini. With Ecoder mini, EESDR3 is fairly stable.

When Ecoder2 is connected and active, EESDR3 becomes very unstable. Sometimes it will freeze even if I only spin the VFO around. Sometimes audio level will jump to max while tuning. Can't put my finger on any consistent behaviour.


1. Run several CW macro messages from any client program. in my case 5M contest. Radio keys OK
2. At some point EESDR3 freezes and stays in TX. Ecoder2 red TX led is lit permanently. I think radio stops responding and I don't think it is LAN related.
3. Radio will restart (reboot) as observed by 3 led (green) flashes.
4. Need to kill the EESSDR3 processes manually or restart computer.

Hi,
thanks for your message

Ecoder2 :
- Out of band : Strong audio, and them need to close software to get RX + Audio again
- Spin : I cannot reproduce so far (it was the case time to time even with previous version)
- Ecoder2 freezes as you mentionned (TXLed is "red")
- For now, exist the program and restart is enough..

Additionnal test (with Ecoder2 active)
- PTT (CAT) + PTT (Winkey) + CW (Winkey): easy to replicate issue
- PTT (Winkey) + CW (Winkey) : easy to replicate
- PTT (CAT) + CW (Winkey) (PTT from winkey disconnected) : I can run N1MM for more than 10mn (6s TX, 1s RX)
I have tested WinKey on both main unit and connected to Ecoder2 : no difference in behavior

The problem : it is impossible to downgrade Ecoder2 to returrn to previous version of software
any possibility to get Ecoder2 previous firmware ?
Thanks

Correction :
- PTT (CAT) + CW (Winkey) (PTT from winkey disconnected) : I can run N1MM for more than 10mn (6s TX, 1s RX) and it hangs after 10mn

Hi Patrice and Ecoder2 users,
I tested the Ecoder2 within EESDR 3 latest 0.13.0 Firmware 79.8 at a Linux Mint 21 distribution.
It works fairly stable, no software crashes for about a week I use it.
It seems Ecoder2 'Loves' Linux.
Only the 3 top knobs are still missing from setup.
Push buttons work all OK.
Anyway it is still an alpha version but at least I temporary can use it.

Deep love of street magic :D

BTW, it is much more simple - code is developed under linux. Hence its compatibility should be expected )in descent order): Linux -> FreeBSD (mac) -> Win.

Ecoder2 is kind of fresh, its code is changeing in practically every version. Hence - there are bugs. Expected.
