    Edison - Nuisance:  First char in serial window gone

    jwestmoreland

      Hello All,


      This is more of a nuisance issue than anything else - but I was wondering if any of you are seeing this.


      I am using both Putty and RealTerm to connect to the serial ports on the Edison systems that I have.

      I have the mini-breakout and the Arduino clone.


      If I connect via the serial ports - and that terminal window sits for at least a few seconds - the first character is

      mysteriously consumed or 'gone' - I always have to retype that initial command.


      The terminal window is OK if I am actively using it - but as soon as it goes idle and I come back in a few minutes - the

      same thing - the first char of what I type is gone.


      Anyone else seeing this?


      Reminds me of a problem I saw long ago.


      Thanks,

      John W.
