DOUT as Status LED not working

DOUT as Status LED not working was created by aaqilkhan
Hi. I received my new XDC2460 from Robotshop today and tried to configure one of the DOUT pins as STATUS LED. It doesn't seem to work. I can clearly see the status LED flashing to indicate that its either Idle or in Serial mode, but I don't see the DOUT pin doing the same. Even in RoboRun+ (v1.4) i dont see the DOut2 pin replicating the status led.

I configured the Dout2 pin like this:
Active Level : tried both high and low.
Activate when: Status LED (1, 2)

Then save to controller and go to Run tab to see Dout2 pin - it stays either hi or low but doesn't flash.

What am I missing?

I replicated your exact settings and it functions correctly Try loading the latest version of Roborun I noticed you have V1.4 and the newest is V1.5.

Thanks Dorian,
I don't think this is an issue with Roborun. In any case, I had v1.5 installed on my laptop and gave it a try and it didn't work there either - just as I suspected. Did you try this on an XDC controller? If so, what's your firmware rev#?

I also have an SDC controller and the Dout as Status Led works on that. Its just not working on the new XDC controller. Anybody has any ideas?

Just an update on this thread. After discussing with Niko, they confirmed this is a bug and have released a fix for it.
I was also able to go around this problem by running a small script which turns on DOUT1 when XDC is in RC pulse mode and receives valid RC pulses.
