Been a while since I have posted. But after this latest update, I needed to compare notes. I have updated all my MD's and he core to the latest fixes. Now all my MD's seem to be happy with the updates. Great things have happened. Storage groups work, excellent. However I have notice an issue.
My DirecTV boxes are controlled by the core with a USB-UIRT, and they are hooked into a PVR 500 and daughter card. Now the issue I am having is this:
I lose the orbiter on the core. I go downstairs to the wiring closet and all I see is the mouse cursor. Thinking it is asleep, I click, but the Main Orbiter screen does not come back. Only after repeated mashing on the F1, F2, and F7 keys does it come back, but then after time it goes away. Since there is no orbiter, my USB-UIRT can not change the channels. So I reboot the core, and for a while it comes back, but then after time it goes away again.
Now watching it reboot, I see it come up like it is supposed to, but I notice the orbiter and all the device loads once, then it loads itself again. I am wondering if something is calling it twice in the beginning. And if so, what?
This is what ps -ef shows:
seth@dcerouter:~$ ps -ef | grep Orbiter

This is a bit from the log:

And if it is calling it twice, is this normal, and if not, where do I modify it to not do so.
