  1. RE: Not Connected error message. I saw that message 4 times while trying 4 different USB cables. Bought a new quality USB data cable and no more error message. No saying that is your issue but it was mine.

    Fuse Popping Tracking

    Yes, I shorted the center pin to the 510 shell and pushed the fire button and got the error message. No error message until the fire button was pushed.
  3. Using Windows 10 - 64 bit Home version with USB 3.0 laptop computer and it sees and talks to the board just fine.

    Fuse Popping Tracking

    Don't know if this will be helpful but I took a reference device and without an atty attached I shorted the center pin to the shell of the 510 connector and got the atty shorted error message. Attached an tank atty and all is well. No blown fuse.

    Trade ya!

    The Evolv made device has been in my hands a minimum of 10 hours per day, every day, since June 1 and if it was going to show a "gottcha" it should have done it by now I would think. The custom made 510 connector really impressed me. I've debated whether to take it apart and anodize it but "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" but an Evolv kit, if it becomes available, will my next purchase.

    Preheat Punch

    Think I read somewhere that 1 would be 160F below set point, 5 would be 100F below set point and 11 would be 10F below set point. Don't recall if that is with preheat set to 200 watts. Disclaimer- my memory is not what it used to be. John or James can po-po my post with a more accurate explanation.

    Downloading Ti CSV ?

    I downloaded it just fine using edge. Bit off topic but as a long time chrome user I have officially switched to Edge. It destroys chrome and Firefox in benchmark tests and damn is it just nice to use overall. [/QUOTE]What version of Windows 10 are you using. I tried again and it doesn't download a file using Win10 x64 Home version. It only copies the data to a page with no file to save to the computer thus I copy that to notebook and then save to file.
  8. Installed the latest Escribe and firmware from "Early Firmware" of 8/7/2015 using Win10 x64 bit Home version. Installed smoothly.

    Downloading Ti CSV ?

    I noted with Windows 10's new browser called "Edge" Microsoft has indicated that IE will be phased out. No time frame has been given yet for the phase out of IE. Chrome is my friend.Note: Download function doesn't work with Windows 10 Edge either.

    Downloading Ti CSV ?

    If using IE you can copy/paste DNA 200 output info into notepad and then save to computer as csv file. Steam Engine's download function is not supported by MSIE. Hope this helps.

    I may be wrong but this is how I read John's post.

    Can you post a diagram of how you wired it? May be helpful to John.

    So you wired it as described by John in Post #1 here and it doesn't work? Maybe John will drop by this thread as he has time.

    Running List of 3S LiPo Options

    I've been looking at batteries also. Do you know what "lifetime warranty" on the maxamps 2000 mah 3s Li-Po means? Is it a free lifetime replacement, prorated, or ?EDIT: Found this on their site and answers my question:Lifetime Warranty During the first year of ownership, MaxAmps will replace any defective LiPo or LiFe battery at no cost. After one year, any defective MaxAmps LiPo or LiFe battery can be exchanged for just 50% of the new pack's list price. Our lifetime warranty is non-transferrable. You must be the original owner to receive warranty coverage. Free Lifetime “Re-Wraps” Is frequent use making your MaxAmps packs look heavily worn? We offer free lifetime “re-wraps” to all our past customers. We will remove the old shrink wrap and decals and give your pack a facelift with brand new decals and shrink. Then we will ship it back to you at NO CHARGE. Yet another valuable service that you receive for being a loyal MaxAmps.com fan. Send your packs along with your name, address and phone number to MaxAmps.com, 1015 W Garland Ave, Spokane, WA 99205.
  15. Maybe this could be an optional setting for those who want it. Wattage scrolls very fast as currently configured. I like it just as it is but can see others may want this option if they choose.

    Windows 10 Incompatibility

    Windows 10 just pushed an update requiring a reset. The first cumulative package of non-security-focused updates.

    Power Off Option

    Just for sake of discussion I ran a simple test. Fully charged device was laid aside for 24 hours and the voltage dropped (as seen in EScribe) from 4.20 volts to 4.19 volts. The device when idle and then sleeps, and then powers off uses little power. What advantage will be gained by having an "off feature" thus requiring an "on feature" when so little power is used?

    what battery

    Depends on your vaping style and settings.

    Praise evolv

    Well I've PIF'd all of my DNA20,25,30 and 40's except two DNA40's to make room for the DNA200's. No need for the "herd" to just collect dust on the shelf. I kept the Beta DNA40 and the Hana V4 and the two DNA200 reference devices. That should be adequate till my "urge to splurge" kicks in.

    EScribe Software

    So we get the build issues taken care of in the Opus and Hana then that should get us closer to the end game, right?
  23. Why not just buy the connectors and make your own extension cable to your desired length.

    Trade ya!

    Sounds like a plan. Having the deficient mods in your hands to dissect and test will help ya get to the root cause. Consumer can trade for a reference device thus a win-win in my books. It's difficult at best to solve issues long distance (over the internet) as much as one tries.
