Hi Piotr,

             While I have a slightly different h/w configuration 
(2xN200, one GPSDO connected through MIMO cable (i.e. I use slightly 
different time/clock sources; and 2 SBXs) and while I have modified the 
Python code to use  timed_commands per the ettus sync page , I have not 
been able to get a consistent relative phase offset between the devices 
on successive GRC runs. I have been struggling for quite a while - 
hopefully, you will get a resolution quickly and I believe it might also 
fix my problem!

                      Kind Regards,
