Re: Audio problem on Thetis

Are you using VAC for audio, or are you listening through the 8000 headphone/speaker connections?

Re: Pressing Keyboard space bar for PTT causing constant switching and MOX lockup.

By the way, do you have any recommendation to offer on a quality wireless mouse and keyboard to look for? Did you not follow the link I made for you in my previous post? Oh, and by the way, I have never used the wireless types before. Does the receiver that comes with it simply plug into one of the...

Re: Pressing Keyboard space bar for PTT causing constant switching and MOX lockup.

I'm glad you got it sorted, Bob. Nevertheless, and I hate to be the proverbial dog with a bone, but I'd still say pick up one of these kits. I did the same thing, i.e. put a bunch of ferrites on my wired keyboard and mouse wires. Then one day I got into some 40M digi stuff and everything went crazy ...

Re: 2.6.9

Giving the Monitor TX AF level some additional thought, it might be easier and more useful to include a checkbox in the VAC1 setup dialog that allows the user to choose between the existing RX1 audio stream, and the audio stream that is currently only sent to the CODEC via the FPGA in the ANAN hardw...

Re: Pressing Keyboard space bar for PTT causing constant switching and MOX lockup.

The fact that I don't get the RFI when running power into the dummy load suggests that I am not picking up direct RF coupling by the mouse, keyboard, and speaker cables. Not true at all. This merely says that the problem is radiated or conducted RF caused by working into a complex impedance that is...

Re: Pressing Keyboard space bar for PTT causing constant switching and MOX lockup.

Aside from not having a station ground system here on this second floor ham shack I believe I have used up all my filtering options. Running a heavy ground wire down to a ground rod is not the way to go for fighting RFI according to an expert on the subject, Charles W8JI. Instead, you need to bond ...

Windows updates are known to damage noon-Windows sound drivers.

Uninstall VAC. Reboot. Reinstall VAC. Reboot. Then try setting it all up again.

There was a problem previously with Thetis where it could crash on certain seq errors. You might cross post this in the 2.6.9 topic.

Slawomir,

Please post some screen shots of your WSJT-X audio setup, PowerSDR VAC setup, and Muzy VAC setup screens. You can use the "Attachments" tab below the main editing window here to do that. Then we'll have a better idea of what's going on.

Thanks,

Hi all, Rick, N1GP, who has taken the P2 firmware from early alpha to beta to late beta status, depending on your specific SDR platform, has reached a point where work is calming down for him a bit and he may be able to start producing beta versions again.

Both Perry and Frank's problems seem like they may be precipitated by a burst of dropped packets. This is odd, because I heavily use my PC for other things during radio operations, including OBS, etc., and I will sometimes, although rarely, see bursts of a 1000 dropped packets or more in the seqlog,...
