Selector Wheel/Manual Material Change Flaky

Hi All

 

  I'm running a UM3, and have been having trouble when changing material. When it comes to the menu for material selection, it reads the nfc tag on the PVA I have in Extruder two, but the spool I have in Extruder 1 doesn't show up (no surprise, no nfc tag on that one). No problem, but when  I try to manually select the material, the menu flashes back to the display showing what material is selected before I can read or scroll through the list. Firmware is up to date. No other issues I am aware of. Frustrating because I can select the proper material (PLA) for Extruder 1. 

 

Any ideas?

      Found a work around solution. If I remove the PVA spool (which has the NFC), and set it away from the printer, the material selection menus stabilize. It's kind of a pain to do that every time though. 

     

      I think this is a bug, but I'm not sure it's worth reporting. Anyone else experience it?
