Re: Repeater: Crash or unwitting trigger?
I'm using the FCB1010/Repeater, but not for multiple commands, so this
a first-hand observation:
Repeater seems to have to "digest" some commands by showing "NOT READY" on
display...could it be that sending it certain multiples under certain
conditions are an over-load? Maybe the "crash" is the next step beyond
