Pirate Radio Stops Working


#1

Hi, I bought a Pirate Radio Kit and have completed assembly and S/D card generation and update per the available instructions. Radio works well and all controls and functions appear to operate correctly. My problem is that after several hours it stops working, i.e. no audio, no VU, no response to control inputs except that the “shutdown” switch operates to allow the system to be shutdown and subsequently restarted by cycling power. The first error indication found in the /var/log/syslog file for each of the two recorded faults are as follows:

Jun 16 00:18:27 raspberrypi kernel: [20859.408087] sched: RT throttling activated

OS is Raspbian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch) and Kernel Linux Raspberrypi 4.14.34+.

Has this issue been previously reported? Any thoughts on how to debug/troubleshoot this issue?

Thank you for any help that you can provide regarding this issue.
