Description

To avoid New User Panic,
- the message: "An ERROR has occurred" should be softened to "Warning: Please Take Note"

This message occurs when two radios of the same series (ie. UV5R) with different firmware are using the same CHIRP image.
Everything transfers fine with the exception of the Others Tab.

As always, Thank You for the excellent work.

History

Updated by Jim Unroe almost 6 years ago

Attached is a screen capture of the "Error" message. It has caused to me go "now what's wrong" more than once until I realize I am experimenting with an image that was saved from a radio with a different firmware version than the one in my radio.

I agree that this "Error" message needs to be toned down to be more of an "informational" message than an error message. I believe it should look more like the "Experimental" prompt for which I have also attached a screen capture.

This affects all radio Models supported by the "uv5r.py" driver.

Hi Bernhard,

No. I think this is something that would have to be change in the CHIRP UI. It is the only "ERROR" message that is available.

If the reads the rest of the message, it should be clear that the upload completed. So it isn't that big of a deal.

The originator contacted me an said he is OK with the ticket being closed.

Well, it's a valid concern, so let's keep this one open until someone can have a look. Thanks for your feedback, Jim.

Changing this message now will cause confusion.
