  • Rig control stops working.

    Rig control stops working if I manually change frequency, otherwise it works fine.

      I had the Rig Control stop the other day also. Never seen that before. I probably have a few hundred hours of operation with this HRD build without issue, until this.

          I have simmilar problem with FT991 and HRD versions released in 2016 and later including the newest one
          Windows 10, HP Eltebook laptop 64 bits. FT991 CAT set to recommended settings 19200 bit rate and RTS enabled. The newest drivers for FT991.
          The easiest way to replicate problem is to power off radio using Power buton, then stay off for an hour and power on back using Power buton in HRD Rig control(maybe less, but if just power off and power on doesn't replicate problem).
          Symphtom is that turning VFO knob on the radio doesnt change frequency on HRD, but changing frequency on HRD changes frequency on the radio.
          Some buttons work both directions, some work only from hrd to radio.
          Changing Poll parameters in HRD and CAT timing in the radio do not change situation.
          The only way to recover is to close HRD (all modules) and restart it again.
          I am not sure, but i think it started when I started to use win 10. Before I had win 7 (all 64 bit).

            I was upgrading to the subsequent HRD versions, but it didn't help.
            Now I am using the newest and problem still exist:

            When I switch off radio using power switch or buton in HRD Rig control or in logbook, HRD hangs.
            I have to close logbook, rig control and any other hrd application to recover.

            FT991, 19200,RTS as recommended.
            Win 10 64 bit.
            HP Laptop.
            Anybody facet this problem or maybe has a fix?

              Any news, any improvement?
              I am upgrading to current versions - currently, but problems described above still exist.
              It is rig depended. With old FT897 and external interface, HRD updates frequency very fast.

                Currently running the newest version, but bproblem still exist - Bug not fixed.
                I open support ticket and after some conversation, problem has been confirmed and promised to be entered into development plan and ticket was closed.
                Great, but i do not see any prograss. Where can i find information which release it is planned to be fixed.
                Currently i am using Workarround:for
                I eliminated HRD rig control ane use RcForb server as a substution. This soft can run as a radio server also for all modules of HRD - Logbook, DM-780, Satelite. It has some limitations, sice it emulates HRD 5.x, but reads and transfers main VFO very fast and without delays, and second VFO fast enough.
                RcForb is open code. Source code is available to look on. Dear developers. Please look on that how communication between software and FT991 is build.
                It could help to fix this bug.
                Problem is not minor, since it cause HRD logbook to hang.
