ThumbDV & Win7


ve3jx@...
 

Greetings all,


I have a ThumbDV and just installed it this week.  Due to rather skimpy documentation, it took a little while to get it working right, especially with XRF reflectors.  It is doing fine right now.


The only quirk I notice is this:

When my PC goes to sleep, the communication between it and the ThumbDV gets 'broken' as well.  That is, when I "awaken" it, WinDV can't communicate with it on its COM4 port.  There are two ways I've found to bring it back:

(1) pull out and reseat the ThumbDV, or

(2) restart Windows.


Has anyone else had this problem?  Is there a better way of 'awakening' it?


Cheers,
