I have two problems, I'm looking for help from the more experienced guys/gals out there...

Problem 1
Followed the updated instructions to install V70 on a clean Raspbian Stretch install. I used an autostart entry to get pavucontrol to load automatically but for the life of me I can't get TTD or TONESEDITOR to autostart at login. I tried rc.local, autostart etc but no luck. Double clicking the files starts them ok so thery are executable.

Problem 2
I can doubleclick on the desktop entry I created or on the actual files whether I put them in the TTD folder or right no the desktop and TTD and TONESEDITOR open just fine.
If I try try running either one form terminal I get an error "non-ascii character in line 2 but no encoding declared"

I suspect problem 2 might be the cause of problem 1.

Any Ideas?
Did you ever sort out problem #1? I have finally figured out (I think) how to get the TTD70 executable to start automatically. However, only from the command line, not the GUI version. If that would help, let me know.

I was able to determine why this stopped working with the 1803 update:

There's a new Microphone Privacy Settings snap-in. Search "microphone privacy settings" and ensure that both "Microphone Access for the Device" and "Allow Apps to Access this Microphone" are both on. Then TTD opens perfectly.

I've had the odd instance of TTD either outright crashing or just randomly locking up, which of course I don't realize until I see that I'm missing calls. Does anyone have a good way of restarting the program, say once daily? (I'm running on Windows BTW). I think I've seen discussion before of using task scheduler to stop and start the service? Or something along those lines anyways.... Open to any suggestions!

Just a thought about a future enhancement.... how about the option to send a periodic test email/text (likely just to the system administrator) just to indicate things are up, running and working as expected? Perhaps have a user configurable time period (daily, weekly etc). Might be kind of handy....

If you setup a second redundant instance of TTD on a second computer (TwoToneDetect Redundancy | TwoToneDetect) you can configure it to email you whenever either goes down. As a less complex means of monitoring the computer, set up a Broadcastify feed and have it send you a text/email whenever it goes down.

Thanks for the link regarding the redundancy... I'll take a look at that. As for the Broadcasitfy feed, I do run one.... from the same PC. Doesn't help me though when TTD crashes.

Sorry, i am not much help on TTD running on Windows. I havenít owned a Windows computer in over ten years. My linux units on the raspberry piís each have a programmed daily reboot. They will also lock up if running continuously. Someone should be able to steer you toward how to do it on Windows.

I'm kind of thinking about that route too... I've got a Pi3 sitting here idle, looking for a job. Might tinker with that this weekend and see if I can get it up and running in the Linux world.

That pi3 could serve as the redundant backup unit to your Windows setup.
