hi
having problem with my throttle pro.

Having upgraded to latest version of ssdc i now find my throttle wont work.the older version i had installed worked a treat as my laptop has bluetooth built in it would take seconds to find it and run no problems.

The new version comes up with a nice window so you can click on the throttle.however it is only found if i first try and send something from my phone wich is synced with lappy then it shows a icon of the throttle.clicking the throttle then assigns it to my selected #1 slot.

Once this is done the throttle does nothing and if i try and disconnect it ssdc crashes and the whole laptop. Goes into slow mo.also the cpu usuage wich is visible at the bottom shoots to 28%..

Trying to shut the laptop down then takes ages and sometimes have to click on force shutdown icon..

Anyone any ideas what is occuring here please.???

Hi Ade,

Just to stop any confusion right from the start, did you go from 5.3.0.0 to 5.4.0.0?

Hi Ade,

No doubt Andrew will be able to point you towards a solution. Whilst waiting for that, have you tried re-installing the old SSDC version to see if this still works ok, if only to exclude one thing for when the experts come by?

Cheers
Chris

hi
i was using the first version that allowed use of the throttle pro.sorry i loose track of version numbers..

Going backwards might be worth a try but net connectivity is difficult and un secure as i use smartphone as wi fi dongle so prefer only to connect when i know there is an update....

Just remembered that the testing is being done with a brand new duracell pro power..

Grabbing at straws here, but try removing the phone dongle and see if that helps - I don't have one but maybe there's some conflict if it's a bluetooth phone connection?

Otherwise, before launching SSDC, click on the Windows "Start" button and open "devices & printers" - right click on the throttle pro icon or any other bluetooth device and select "delete device". Don't worry, they should all re-install themselves automatically next time they are needed. This cleared it for me when I was having problems, but that was version 5.3 and I think it's been changed with 5.4, which should have improved it.

hi
i have installed version 5.2.1 wich is the first version to feature throttle pro. And it all connects up within seconds.

All the buttons work and i can see the slider moving the break marker as well.

So version 5.4 does not work as well for users with built in bluetooth.??

Hi Ade, I have seen this problem too - it is because I changed the throttle connect window in 5.4 and it doesn't seem to be quite so reliable as the 5.3 version. Suggest that you go back to 5.3 for the moment. I will post 5.4.1 very soon, and I hope that it will include a fix for this.

In fact - I think that I have just found the problem. I didn't have the bluetooth discovery time set for long enough - so it wasn't finding everything. I have just increased the timeout and it appears more solid. Will post something this evening I think.
