The dashboard often shows that my program "flickers" into "Watchdog" mode periodically while in Teleoperated, either enabled or disabled. This is odd because I have disabled the watchdog both in the constructor and in the Teleoperated mode. Has anyone ever had a similar issue?

Thanks.

EDIT: it also sometimes flickers to the "No Robot Communication" mode.

The new driver station is extremely buggy. However, I did have a similar issue when I accidentally had both the old and new driver stations connected to the robot.

That's a known issue that National Instruments will be looking at.
It may just be the Diagnostics tab on the Driver station.

The driver station isn't supposed to work when two are plugged in trying to control the same robot. I'm pretty sure the blue DS will misbehave under those circumstances too.

If you find issues with the updated driver station, please report them.
