HDX software 15.3.3 and Vertical Power VPX (Read 460 times)

I've got a dual HDX Skyview system with a VPX. I installed software 15.3.3 a few days after it was released and just noticed that I am no longer able to control VPX circuits from the HDX vpx screen. The screen accurately reflects the state of all the circuits and the current drawn but I'm not able to toggle the state of any circuits from the HDX screen.

I searched the latest manual but can find nothing to indicate any change. In the previous software version I was able to toggle circuits on/off without issue.

Am I missing something?

Glad I read this. I was preparing to swap my D700s for the HDX units, but I have a VPX, so that's now on hold.

If you have the previous firmware it should be fine.

Jake, since Dynon has acknowledged this bug, I presume you have a beta release that corrects this problem?

Mark, this is from another post —
“Thanks for bringing me back to earth on this. I was just having a brain fart. I forgot you had to scroll and push the button, for some reason I was thinking the touch screen controlled it. Thanks for the quick replies.”

As Dynon has posted, there is a temporary ‘bug’ which doesn’t allow you to use the touch capability to quickly do a reset however the above sentence explains the ‘work around’ for now.  IMO it is not a biggie & will be fixed ASAP.
Please don’t be too quick to condemn as other manufacturers, including much higher priced Tso’d products, also have issues  with their very expensive products compared with the price point of the experimental units we use.  Changing your decision to purchase due to a relatively small problem is something you may regret.  Dynon have excellent products IMO, & with 3 years warranty & a real low repair costs for out of warranty repairs, they will be very hard for the big end of town to beat. 
While they continue to perform the way they always  have I will always buy their units, there is no reason not to.  Wink

Jake, you misunderstood me.  I have a panel full of Dynon stuff. The reason I was asking is that a beta test version would logically mean that a correction was imminent. The last update took many months. I was just trying to figure out when a correction would be available. I will upgrade to the HDX units when the VPX support code is corrected.
