Re: Using VAC1 audio out with VOX

Ha, ha! I had just assumed you were using VAC for the TX audio. Obviously VAC1 VOX only works for VAC1 TX audio.

Glad you got it sorted.

Re: Using VAC1 audio out with VOX

This shouldn't matter, but select "Use VAC Audio" in the Anti-VOX section just to dot that "i". Also, if you are using speakers, I recommend turning on Anti-VOX and setting Anti-VOX gain to -20 as a staring point. Lastly, and this is a little disturbing, your main UI is showing D...

Re: Using VAC1 audio out with VOX

Ah, you are using Thetis. Not seeing any problems in your screen shots so far. Please also post a screen shot of Setup > DSP > VOX/DE.

This definitely works. It's either a strange settings problem or you'll need to start with a completely fresh database.

Re: VAC/audio problems on 200D

My 200D was stable today for 8 hours with only one ‘audio’ crash, so that is a big improvement by simply altering the buffer to 1024. Bump it to 2048 and see if it's better still. One thing I would like for SSB phone operation is to be able to monitor my own TX audio without the current annoying sl...

Re: VAC/audio problems on 200D

I'll add that I greatly prefer Voicemeeter Potato to Muzy VAC. It's easier to use, and provides better results. The only thing Voicemeeter won't do is transfer IQ data to CW Skimmer.

Rob is nailing it. Increase your buffer setting. The additional latency won't bother you for digi op's. Check the force boxes if necessary. And check the stereo box.

Re: Using VAC1 audio out with VOX

VOX works fine with VAC1 audio I/O, with both PowerSDR mRX and Thetis. Been running that way for years.

a question for others using WSJT ... I see no 'switch' to turn on/off the Resampler ... is that always on in Thetis?

You can always post more attachments in a follow up post, however I have increased the maximum number of attachments to 10.

Change the buffer latency ringbuffer in setting back to automatic and tell us if that makes a difference.

Re: 2.6.9

John,

I can't remember if this is the case for PowerSDR, but I believe you always had to have "Use Drive Power" checked in Setup > Transmit > Tune for the drive slider to control tune power level.

Try a different version of the firmware if this problem continues to reoccur:

The latest version is not necessarily the best version for everyone because a universal timing closure for all hardware had yet to be identified.

Go back to 2.6.8 and tell us what happens. Use a fresh database, of course. Then go back to 2.6.9 and see what happens, again with a fresh database. This will tell us if it's software or firmware. And what firmware version are you running on the 200D? The latest is 1.8 AFAIK.
