As of v6.4.0.638 this issue has not been resolved, or it was resolved and came back. It needs to be done as soon as possible so people don't get an error every time they install an update and start DM-780.

Also getting annoyed with all the tickets coming in about this.

We should
A: disable the auto connect or
B: remove it at all until we get a good integration with TNC > 3rd party program and DM780

I'm not able to reproduce this.

Here's what I tried:

1) Start up DM780
2) Use the "Data Controller" command in the "View" menu
3) The app now has a "Data Controller" pane. The "Connect" tab in that pane shows a list of COM ports.

For me, none are connected; maybe "enabled" means something different than "connected". But if so, it's not clear to me what it means.

If this is still a problem, please provide a detailed explanation and repro steps describing the issue. It might help to quote the error given when an update is installed and DM-780 is restarted.

I would like to "as long this is a non functional feature" getting hidden to select it as an option
As long it is not defaulting to have Auto Connect selected.

In other words, do not give the customer the chance selecting Data controller.

Why is Data Controller option still visible?
It confuses many customers and they still reporting DM-780 issues when the use the settings in that module.
Please Hide that option or remove it... rather yesterday then Tomorrow

This is still an occasional issue where the customer believes he has a TNC and sets the auto-connect option. This is going to continue being a problem either until we get Randy and Erik to get that software completed for the PK232 TNCs or decides it's not going to be completed and take this option out of DM-780 completely.

In the 2019-08-01 call. Tim and Ferry explained that they wanted to make these changes:

1) Remove the "DataController" drop-down menu from the DM780 application
2) Remove the "Data Controller" button from the main tool bar in the DM780 application
3) Remove the "Data Controller" command from the View menu in the DM780 application
4) Disable "Data Controller" window from reappearing if it was saved in a previous layout

When the four visible feature in note 8321 are removed, what becomes of the "Let The Data Controller key the radio via interface." option in the PTT page of the program options?
