3.3.29 DAX - can't control RX 1 audio level vs. WSJT-X

I upgraded to SmartSDR 3.3.29. Since then, WSJT-X receive bar is +80dB red. When I go into windows 10 sounds, and look at DAX RX devices, there are two different sets in RECORD with the same names (DAX audio RX 1) but different icons., and also a SET of DAX audio RX 1 thru 8 in PLAYBACK area. None of the ones labeled "DAX Audio RX 1" will control the actual RX level for the WSJT-X receive bar. Neither will the RX gain slider on the SmartSDR DAX desktop window, in the RX Streams 1 window section. Did the 3.3.29 installer corrupt the DAX RX and TX devices? WSJT-X is working and decoding, but I simply can't control that RX level going into WSJT-X.

Thanks for any help.

Neal, N6YFM

    You might have to open a support ticket for this one Neal. DAX needs some TLC it seems.

    Mine did this and I simply went to DAX window clicked of the RX button for the slice I was on and disabled it then reenabled it and all was good here.
