Default sluggish D-Control transport after upgrading to PT8.1.1

We just upgraded to 8.1.1 from 8.0.1 and our two D-Control main units are exhibiting sluggish response and flakiness when linked up over Satellite.

The behavior is erratic. Sometimes it is okay and sometimes it doesn't work well. There seems to be a lag in Pro Tools receiving commands and so we have to hit stop, wait a brief second, then hit play to continue playing. We are used to being able to hit stop-play in rapid succession to restart playback. We are also used to being to hit play while the transport is rolling to restart playback and this is not always working.

Anyone have similar experieinces? We are on firmware

Thanks in advance,

Hi Matt,

Is the behavior the same without the satellite link ?
I'm not sure if so why that would be but I can check if this is a known issue or not. I know using video satellite things got a little bit flakey at some point but that was all fixed. And Pro Tools 10 fwiw is just blazingly fast with Video Satellite as well ....
But I'm not 100 % sure if that would be the same with Pro Tools satellites ....
