Automata27 we also have some DC syncs problem.

I copy you some links:

lists.etherlab.org/pipermail/etherlab-users/2018/003281.html
github.com/sittner/linuxcnc-ethercat/issues/45

Sascha is improving the sync function and he is trying to achieve the B method described by Graeme Foot here
lists.etherlab.org/pipermail/etherlab-users/2016/003013.html

You could try to install rt-preemt and try the fix-dc-sync version that sascha has programmed. The desync problems in ciclyc position mode continues for me using it but you could try it. More feedback could help him.

I think the origin of the problem is the time between sent packets. If you try to use wireshark like I described in github issue you could investigate it deeply.

hi pl7i92,
I'm also interested in this topic, but I'm not sure it works, download the file and in the terminal use the command "patch < add-task-pll-functions.patch"
