F16V2R - string port menu hangs controller

I was making a change to one of the virtual string ports and when I saved the change, the controller hung up. Now when ever I try to go to the string port web page, the controller just hangs up. I tried to save the setting before going any farther but each time I try, the settings save starts the download and hangs the controller. The controller appears to work normally until I do one of these actions. Can someone help me with this? firmware is v1.11 b006


IIRC, there was an issue with a quote or something messing up the data for that page.  Did you use any single quotes in your output descriptions?  Maybe I'm remembering wrong, but you might want to do a little searching in the forum or someone else will chime in and refresh my memory.


The partial save of the settings file show the string I was working on and it looked fine. The settings file does stop after that port number if that helps.


Rename the downloaded settings file so it ends in a .txt extension and attach it to a post here and we can take a look.


I can't find any posts referencing what I was thinking about, but did find this one that said some were having a similar issue and a factory reset fixed the issue.,9946.msg90554.html#msg90554
