Hi Armin,

You can reset X3x0 series devices via a register write with the following
command (this is in to your UHD src directory):
firmware/usrp3/x300/x300_debug.py --addr 192.168.40.2 --poke=0x00100058
--data=1.

When you kill your app and resume, how long do you wait before restarting?
Can you try waiting a minute or two and see if that fixes the issue? If
that works, then it points to some internal buffering in the USRP not being
cleared before restarting streaming.

Jonathon
