This is tricky. Not only have I never seen this issue, but it sounds like
it happens intermittently for you as well. If this is something you're
still running into, I'd encourage you to email me at support at ettus.com
directly. We can cover some additional troubleshooting and potentially get
these boards sent in examination, if necessary.
