Re: PowerSDR won't start

oh believe you me I do! There has to be 50 DB versions in that folder. What had me going is that the db i was using WAS stable on the i5 computer!! But it wouldn't run on the i7. So I went back a couple months (very little changed in that time frame) and that seems to have me back in order again. so...

Re: PowerSDR won't start

ok - so I went back to an earlier DB and it worked initially ... I've just restarted the computer so we'll see.... ok - good, it all came up. Strange that the DB would not work on the new computer but didn't give me any issues on the previous one! Go figure THAT scenario. I THINK, he says cautiously...

Re: PowerSDR won't start

Scott, not sure what the link is suppose to do for me. Mine won't start after the first time it is run and then closed. And I'm getting no error message other than Windows saying it has to close.

Re: PowerSDR won't start

ok - so its working again - kind of and then not ... I didn't delete the database file like I thought i did. Doing that allows it to start up again and of course nothing is "right". I then select, once again, the latest DB file (that has been working for a very long time with only very sma...

PowerSDR won't start

This has been running for a year and a half or so ... I recently bought a new i7-8700 computer more for future proofing than anything else. so ... MAJOR failure... so I got everything installed, I think ... VSPE, VAC, log, WSJT-X, PowerSDR. Had PSDR running with my latest DB and with all the VAC set...

Re: LatencyMon Benchmarks

Gentleman: Hopefully this will be the last report to this thread. So - I got the replacement i7-8700 in, this is a Pavillion 590-p0070. The first one had reasonable PassMark PerformanceTest marks for the CPU coming in at 14840 (the "nominal" over what appears to be hundreds of submissions ...

Step size vis a vis the mouse wheel

I've had the latest running for a long time now and have never noticed this before until a couple days ago. I don't know if this is a bug or if intentional and if intentional how you "control/change" its behavior. So you have the "STEP SIZE" boxes at top center. + and -. And I of...

Hey Brent - I fancy myself a history buff - but I can't tell who the picture avatar is ... ? So ... I just did an OS restore.

Re: LatencyMon Benchmarks

so I spent the whole d#$* day working on it ... I went back to the original HDD alone, tried the SSD alone... tried various settings etc ... always the same results - around 11500 ish when the first test gave me a 14480 and the nominal is around 15250.

Re: LatencyMon Benchmarks

I'd "accept" that except for when I tested this computer, the 5+ year old i7-4770, it's rating is spot on for this processor results as shown by PassMark (showing hundreds of results). I didn't do anything to this computer before I ran the test other than start it up. Also we're talking 19...

Re: LatencyMon Benchmarks

so that new computer that i have ... it is an i7-8700 3.2Ghz ... it ran a 14800 on CPU/Passmark test 2 weeks ago or so ... today when I run it it is anywhere from 11500 (tops) down to 10000! WHAT CHANGED? I can't figure out why it would drop so much. That is a huge difference and its now running abo...

Re: LatencyMon Benchmarks

Joe, Agreed ... however there are LOTS of things running ... I don't know how programs that do not run multi-thread (if that is the right term for actually using multi-cores by design) end up using a core ... if they are only typically on a core - then unless there is some randomness on how they're ...

Re: LatencyMon Benchmarks

and I tried changing PSDR to just one core - core 6 on my i5 (6 cores total) ... there was no change that was obvious. The CPU usage was the same as I'd expect it to be ... note my thought on this is that if one were to do this you'd want to have the programs you're concerned with, for example WSJT,...

Re: LatencyMon Benchmarks

so apparently I lucked out and hit some of the items that need to be (re)set. I added another one after that last one - I don't remember where it was ... the new computer has now run for over 6 hours and still is "acceptable" ... although I suspect JUST so as the one category that it previ...

Re: WSJTX AND PWRSDR 3.4.9

huh? Its been a long while since I first set it up but I don't quite get why you both say/agree that Enable PTT should be OFF! It has to be on - or at least it IS on for my situation and it is configured from within WSJT to use it as a (separate) com port.

Re: S meter reading

well that's a start ... but that is still high. What band was this? And you're sure there is no antenna connected at the rear jack?

Also what filter width?
