SmartControl Mode & WSJT-X issues

I am running into problems using SmartControl Mode on a Windows 10 MiniPC with 8 GB. I am using WSJT-X. My DAX and CAT seem to be working properly, but there are two major issues: 1) the rig is getting the FT8 audio but it is not transmitting the audio out, altho the Flex 600M is keying OK. 2) FT8 receive is slow or nothing. It works fine without SmartControl. Is this a lack of memory? Sometimes it decodes but when it does it is very slow, or non-existent.

What is going on? Any ideas? I really love SmartConrol but it is useless if it won't work with FT8. Thanks in advance!

    I should clarify that I'm using the latest SmartSDR version on Win 10.

    Scott, I sometime use SmartControl with FT8 running, I have not noticed anything Rx or Tx. DAX is still an issue, it sometimes loses the ability to TX. I restart it and it works great, other times I have to restart it a couple of times. I also noticed that WSJT-X will stop transmitting, restart usually fixes this problem. I've made over 6000 contacts using WSJT-X, overall I'm very satisfied with the Flex.
