I recently acquired a 497 handbox, it still had its original firmware on it. I updated to the latest firmware 43g. Right after update the scope and controller worked fine, recognized lnt no problem. Here’s the issue, when I turn off the scope and turn it back on, the LNT isn’t recognized, but if I do a reset, it shows back up. And when the power is shut off it doesn’t recognize it, so I have to reset the controller every time to get it recognize the LNT. Any suggestions. Also the battery in the LNT has just been replaced and it works fine with my original 494 handset. And works fine with the 497 after I do a reset.
