DAXIQ and CWSkimmer configuration

Graham999au Member ✭✭
I'm having trouble getting the right settings to work for IQ audio. There are a lot of conflicting configurations on the internet which doesn't help.
I have a 6300 connected to SSDR v3.1.12 (latest) on the same LAN segment. CAT works fine. DAXIQ is streaming at 96KHz correctly.
In CWSkimmer, I tried the following:
SoftRock-IF/96KHz/9600 audio IF/WDM/DAXIQ RX1/Left-Right=I/Q
However I cannot see any signals when I run CWS. Probably because my audio IF setting is wrong?
I tried SoftRock and I can see the signals however the middle of the CWS "spectrum" is very dark - definitely not right. I tried SDR-Bridge but that didn't help, in fact it removed the CAT option in CWS and I'm still trying to fix that. It set the radio to SoftRock.
Any help much appreciated.

    Hi Graham,

    When you use SDR-Bridge to start CWSkimmer it uses an INI file that is supposed to select the proper settings. For instance, on IQ 1 it uses a file named IQ1.INI. It should not be necessary initially for you to change CWS settings.

    However there are a couple of caveats.

    Sometimes the automatically selected audio output for CWS doesn't work, and needs to be manually changed.

    Sometimes the provided INI files get saved with incorrect settings. In that case replace the ones in ProgramData/W2RF with clean versions that are available from the Start menu under SDR-Bridge.

    If you continue to have problems consider contacting me directly from the http://qrv.com/contact web page.
