SmartSDR & DAX resource usage
I have run into a problem installing SmartSDR on a pc that is also running other SDR programs for other SDR radios. It seems that if I install SmartSDR and DAX that there are so many resources in the Audio section of Windows RESERVED for DAX and SmartSDR that it prevents other programs from accessing some of those resources that had previously been working before SmartSDR and DAX were installed.
One program in particular , Thetis that I use with an Anan 8000DLE looses the microphone input audio completely even though SmartSDR and DAX are not running at the time. If I uninstall SmartSDR and DAX, the microphone input starts working again. I know there have been past posts about similar problems with SmartSDR and DAX hogging resources. But, I would have thought this issue would have been resolved long before now.
I think one can go into Windows settings and UN-reserve those resources. But, I think the next time SmartSDR and/or DAX are started, the entries get changed again and other applications cannot use those resources.
Any suggestions besides giving SmartSDR or Thetis it's own computer? I can do that, but, it is a pain to have to deal with more than one computer to do different things.
