    Default PC to IdraNet Interface

    Hi All
    Have being having trouble with the usb pc to idranet Interface, problem is this, almost every day at least once, the system stops working, and am not able to turn lights, heating and such on. I have to pull the usb lead out and put back in for system to come online again.

    Any layperson suggestions.

    cheers

    When this next happens and before unplugging the USB connector I suggest you go to PC control panel | System | Hardware | Device Manager | Ports and check to see if you can see a USB Serial Port registered and if so that it is to the Com port that you are using in Cortex. This might clarify whether your system is for some reason de-registering that port (I don't know why this would happen but just checking).

    You can also try re-loading the USB driver and read installation guide carefully from here:

    I'm presuming that this symptom is something that has just recently started happening? If so have you made any changes to your system before the symptoms started?

    Have you got the audio leads plugged in between PCU and PC? If not then advise you do.

    If the above turns up nothing unusual then I suppose there is a slim chance of something wrong with the PCU, but if it has worked ok so far then sounds very unlikely.
