Locked Re: OmniRig Error After Upgrading to v 2.5.4 #Cat_RigControl

Pietro Molina

Paul, I'm using wsjt-x ànd Log4OM together, both using omnirig as
interface. This is why omnirig born.
I'm not at PC now, but I'll send here the setup as soon as I was back to
the radio.

Hi Pietro,

I wasn't aware of the inability to share a com port, Thx. Would the
following scenario work to allow the two programs to share the same USB
cable AND the same instance of OmniRig?
1. Assign COM 1 to Rig 1 and COM 2 to Rig 2.
2. Assign Rig 1 (7610 DATA) to WSJT and Rig 2 (7610) to Log4OM.

However I should point out that for some reason Log4OM and WSJT were
previously running simultaneously over the same USB cable very successfully
with WSJT 2.5.3, and NO changes were made other than installing 2.5.4.
Also, after the upgrade WSJT gave the same error even when Log4OM wasn't

To clarify the exact errors:

1. Initially opening WSJT gives: Rig Control Error - Do you want to
reconfigure the radio interface?"
2. Hitting OK, then Test CAT, gives "Rig failure - Failed to start OmniRig
COM server"
