I connect the ClockTamer to the devices, and set the output frequency of the clocktamer at 10MHz. To test whether it works properly, i transmit a sine wave from another device, and receive from my two USRPs. What i observe when i set the output frequency of the tamer, is that while at the first USRP the frequency of the received signal shifts (sign that the internal clock becomes in sync with the external), the signal received by the other USRP does not have the same behavior.

To clarify, are you simultaneously driving two B210 devices with a
single 10 MHz reference? How are the reference connections coupled?

If you test each single device individually with the 10 MHz source,
does each device lock to the reference?
