Other Log Box and Status Bar Messages:

These are messages received in the Log Box which are not necessarily error messages. Alphabetically:

Audio device detected. This message appears on startup when using an HRI-200.

Connect Request from #####. This means node number _____ attempted to connect to your node.

Connect Request from XXXXX-XX Member Reject. This message appears in your log box to indicate a node called you, but that you rejected the connection.

Delete 1 Silent Node. This message was received by a node connected to a room. This node continually disconnected from the room and went back to the specified Return To Room #. One response to this issue was that this message is received when a node times out and goes back to the Return To Room #. However, the node owner indicates the TOT is set at UNLIMITED, making this explanation possibly invalid. More info is needed. (UPDATE Dec. 2, 2020): The ‘Delete 1 Silent Node message shows up in the ROOM log, not in the NODE log. Apparently it denotes when a node leaves the room. Why is it called ‘Silent’? I don’t know but perhaps it means the node was not transmitting when it left the room.

This seems to happen while you remain in the room or were very recently connected to a node.
