Spot click not updating frequency

Posted: 27 Oct 2015, 02:09
I am in to process of installing Ver - and everything seems to be falling into place except rig frequency control. I'm using OmniRig with a TS-590. Double clicking on a spot causes the rig to change to the appropriate mode (USB, LSB, CW, etc.) and the rig confirms the action with a CW 'u', 'l', 'c', etc. What doesn't happen is changing the rig's frequency. The current rig frequency (of both VFO's) is displayed correctly in the upper right-hand screen of Log4OM and follows any manual tuning of the TS-590.

Thanks -

Change the Omnirig polling rate to 100 and see if that fixes it.

Guess your using the USB connection which many 590 owners have had problems with on early TS590's?

Thanks for the info. I do have it working now - what I did is select Hamlib and rather unsuccessfully tried to set it up. So I thought "Oh what heck" and changed back to OmniRig. It's worked like a champ. (I think it's what called "FM"!) I will go back and change the polling rate to be safe. During the trials, I did restart the app several times before trying Hamlib - so I don't think it was a restart issue. Anyway - it's doing great now.
Thanks - - and 73's
