TBD troubleshooting Oct 14, 2023 8:29:07 GMT via mobile

Firstly thanks for diving into this one and for all the background info - Robert L mentioned about an older bug that sounded similar but had been squashed and was wondering if there was a regression of some sort - not being a code guy I can only imagine the complexities of finding something like that.
I won't pretend to know enough about flash ROM, though given saving/recall is the issue and it's losing saved presets (computer app side as well as in the unit) it seems likely I'd have thought.
Another thing Ive seen btw is that when editting parameters in the edit window, some settings are lost when scrolling beyond where that parameter can be viewed in the edit window. That's been the case on two android devices and my windows machine. (Edit: not 100% on that happening in windows thinking about it - might be that has been android app bug...)
I'll try to get some time this weekend to have a fiddle - in terms of building a custom firmware I can have a go with that assuming I can figure it out. I've never found GitHub the most user friendly experience for the non-computer types like me.
Backing up the TBD - I didn't know about any of that! I've been using the individual export/import functionality recently, though wasn't even doing that at one point. No issues at all sending that over - is pm the best way or do you want to pm me an email address?
Obviously if I back up the recent config the saved settings/ presets are already lost - do you want me to send that over and then another config with the presets/apps reloaded that broke last time? Probably easiest just to let me know exactly what you want there but I've no issues getting whichever is best to you.
Firmware wise I can check that too - I guess that's first thing to rule out, though I'm 99% it's the latest one - I've been using Robert L's newer front end recently and that points to the latest revision I think. Pretty sure I cross referenced numbers over at GitH too. I'll pass that on later today...
In terms of the shell window I'm usually running unattached to the computer - I set my presets up, save and work untethered - though I can reinstall the last configuration and see if I can break it again quickly. Last time all I did was load plugins/slots until the settings were gone. I'd basically load, listen, load the next save, listen etc... Eventually one would load without CV to pitch and then all the others using the same plugin would also be broken. After one went the other (different) plugins would also get lost soon after.
OS wise I'm running Windows here - I think it's 10 on the laptop I use for the TBD.
So yeah, thanks for shouting up and thanks to the other Robert in the post above too - I'd love to get these things working in the way I want since when they do they're perfect for my needs.
(The all backup might also help me quite a lot too, since I've spent quite a lot of time starting from scratch in the past - one setup and a save/load seems like a lot less work testing wise!)
