I thought I was the only one with that problem. Same results here. SSB update very slow or not happening with the TS2000 (0 delay setting,. highest baud rate), once I switch to FM it seems to work. It is even worse if you have two radios connected. IC910H same issue.
Another hidden problem is the delay rate with the IC910 and SatPc32 (previous and this version). It does not work with 0 delay and needs at least 30 or 40. That makes it impossible tracking efficiently DelfiC3 telemetry without constant manual overwrite and fine tuning. Seems to be specific to SatPC32 since HamRadio Deluxe runs the IC910 without delay and the doppler control is much better timed.

The symptom is that the frequency isn't updated at the expected interval (Doppler correction isn't occurring at the expected frequency change intervals). It is slow to occur, if at all. > > Futhermore, when trying to change between U/V and V/U birds, the band changes don't occur (i.e., the xmit/rcv VFO's don't swap bands). > > Everything works perfectly under ver. 12.7. I have checked and rechecked settings in ver. 12.8, and I have uninstalled/reinstalled, and still the symptoms appear. I am using WinXP Pro. I'm not sure what firmware I have in the TS-2000X..but it works perfectly under 12.7. > > Is anyone else using a TS-2000X or TS-2000 seeing similar symptoms with ver. 12.8? > > -- > Mark L.
