My Kiwisdr reboots itself [fixed in v1.485]
edited January 2022 in Problems Now Fixed
Every so often it reboots by itself.

Can anyone explain to me why? What can I check or set to solve this problem?
Almost certainly inadequate power. Just like all the other cases of this we've seen. See here: http://kiwisdr.com/quickstart/index.html#id-power
I had ruled out a power problem because in the log I saw that the reboot was starting, which should not have been written in the log (I supposed).
I will try with a better power supply.
Remember that your power supply can be fine, but if the cable is too long or uses too small of a wire gauge there can be under voltage at the Kiwi during peak current draw. This will cause the Kiwi power controller chip to shutdown (voltage < ~4.75V). See the link I posted.
I have replaced the power supply with the recommended Mean Well GST18A05-P1J but the reboot problem continues, 4-5 every day.
Could there be another reason?
Is this your publicly listed Kiwi? If so, can you email me the admin password? I should be able to run the debugger on the core file and get a traceback from the crash.
I sent you an email
The crash traceback happens while transferring dx labels to the page. It's not completely clear what's wrong. I added some debug code to log more information the next time it happens.
in fact I'm often adding dx label...
