    Default Known issues with the April 2016 Beta Test Release

    Currently known issues and possible workarounds for the March 2016 Beta Test Release of the EFILive Software and Firmware

    Download the April 2016 beta test release here: https://forum.efilive.com/showthread...a-Test-Release
    Download the public stable-release here: http://www.efilive.com/latest/cat/download-efilive

    Beta test release software versions:

    • Software: V7.5.7.304
    • Software: V8.2.2.295
    • FlashScan/AutoCal firmware: V2.07.98



    Issue 1:
    If you are Black Box Logging PIDs from an ECM and TCM simultaneously and you have selected a PID from the transmission controller (TCM) that has an identically named PID in the engine controller (ECM), then when the log file is loaded back into the V8 software for viewing, that TCM PID will be displayed as if it originated from the ECM. The PID's data will have correctly been logged from the TCM, only its name will appear to indicate that it was logged from the ECM.
    Workaround:
    None.
    It is a restriction of the *.efi (V7.5 log file format). That restriction will be removed and the TCM PIDs will display their true origin once the V8 scan tool software is available.

    Issue 2:
    When logging DMA PIDs (i.e. PIDs whose names end with "_M" or "_DMA"), if the ignition is switched off for an extended period while data logging but data logging is not terminated, then when the ignition is switched on again the data log automatically continues. However the DMA PIDs may no longer return valid data.
    Workaround:
    EFILive recommends stopping the data log and restarting the data log when switching off the ignition for extended periods.
