Subject: Lockin filter names too long - broke loading 

Problem:

Could not load filters into the C1:SUS-ETMX_LOCKIN1_SIG filter bank.

Reason:

Apparently the filter bank name was too long.  I'm not sure why this isn't caught by the real time code generator, I'm planning on asking Alex and Rolf about it today.

Solution:

Reduce the name of the components.  Basically LOCKIN1 needs to become something like LOCK1 or LIN1.

 

In related news, it looks like the initial filters are hard coded to be 2048 Hz.  Given that they start out empty they won't cause things to break immediately, and if you're editing the file you can update the rate as you add the filter.  I'll also bring this up with Alex and Rolf and see if the RCG can't be more intelligent about its filter generation.
