    SBS-1 crash!

    I have one problem with my SBS-1 reciever.
    When the reciever has been online for some time, it just hangs. Even if I reboot my computer I have the same problem. I have to shut down the SBS-1 box manually.

    Any ideas on how to avoid this?

    I have the same problem with my SBS-1, after about 4-6 weeks the USB-port just stops working. I have found a sollution, to re-flash the firmware with the same software. Seems a bit risky to re-flash the SBS-1 every 5 week, so i'm looking for a better sollution.

    Check your Power Saver options as there is one to allow the USB to go to sleep.
    Disable that feature.

    I suggest you check your antivirus software

    If your PC scans Basestation at the same time as yoou are trying to write to basestation it can hang.
    My SBS has been on a basic PC for 2 years without hanging and only reboot was when I upgraded to version 146

    Regards

    I'm not running any antivirus software on my radar computes, and all of them keeps crashing once a month.

    I'm using SBS-1, SBS-1e, SBS-1er with all combination of firmwares and software. I have posted on kenetic forum and received no help.
    The support is NOT excellent, neither from AirNav or from Kenitic. The best thing they can do is write SPAM and talk BULLSHIT.

    I use the Kinetic forum everyday and I didn't see any post there that wasn't answered?

    USB is not the most reliable connection and a few people report dropouts, both for the SBS-1 and RadarBox.

    I use ethernet and get about one disconnect a year and my Basestation is running 24x7. When it happens I just restart Basestation and all is well.

    What you're doing is extreme to say the least and not what I'd be wanting to do everytime I lost a connection.
