Surface and SmartSDR

Upgraded my surface 1 to windows 10 RTM and installed SmartSDR. Operating with the remote feature with touch navigation of the pan adapter is providing a good operating experience. Maybe not optimal for contesting but casual browsing of the bands really works well.image

    I5 @1.7Ghz 4GB RAM. Screen is kind of a funky size, will probably upgrade to a Surface 4 if it ever comes.

    SmartSDR had never been installed before on the Surface. Install completed without error and DAX and Smart CAT ran the first time. Also installed WSJT-X and it worked with CAT and PTT once I created the second com port.

    I don't use DAX on the tablet so I've uninstalled it & CAT to reduce CPU load.

    Simon,  instead of shutting down and turning back on for a reboot, try using
    the "restart" option. For some reason on the SFC, there seems to be a big
    difference.  I'd been turning it off and on as part of normal operation for days
    and my ports were working, but not showing up in device manager. Things
    worked, but were odd.  Since I did a "restart" instead of a shutdown, it fixed
    itself up.  Maybe this will work for DAX oddities too.

    SFC Pro i7  Build 10240  (RTM)
    (build # no longer appears, but you can type "winver" in a command
    window to get the build number)

    Does it Transmit audio SSB/AM/FM  without stuttering or skipping or lagging?

    Just curious of latencies..

    Digital for the most part has been fine.
