I keep finding my computer working on regular wus. Is there a way to make it do CUDA only? I'm not sure what condition causes it to get regular units, but that condition does recover. At this point it may be a day or two before I start working CUDA units again. CUDA units are worked in 15-60 minutes. non-CUDA units are worked in 4-24 hours. So I can waste time where I could have completed 4 to 96 CUDA units.

Under your account, go to your SETI@Home preferences and unselect "Use Central Processing Unit (CPU)" and make sure "Use Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) if available" is selected.

This won't change anything that's already on your computer, but once your local BOINC's preferences have been updated, all future work requests should be for GPU only.

...all future work requests should be for GPU only.

Unless you have an app_info.xml that tells otherwise.

Why would that be a forum bug?

This preferences "bug" might be connected to the replica database not being up to date. Try again (and again:-)
