Hi, playing with new DAX, I was able to listen the selected slice/DAX receiver in LAN connected PC. Running SmartSDR in a remote PC, selecting DAX1 for a slice, configuring DAX1 as preferred record device for Windows and activating "listen this device". I can listen (with latency) on PC speakers. Some pops and ****.....but works. 73 Beppe ik3vig

    I observe some noises when I use DAX to listen to the band, too. Also I cannot monitor CW when I use DAX. X/RIT is not implemented yet? Overall, I recognized a good progress! Excellent work Flex Radio! de JA2IYJ/1

    Where is the PC? Remote means over WAN. Tell us how it works.

    I wrote "LAN" not "WAN". The PC is in other room, connected to a switch with others PC and F6700. 73 Beppe ik3vig

    Beppe, I have not yet been able to confiugre this. It seems when I installed the update on my Lenovo Yoga ultrabook I totally lost the use of the built in speakers. It may work on attached phones or speakers connected to the audio port but I have not tried that yet. Do you have a lot of traffic over your LAN? How bad is the latency? How do you have CW configured? 73 Greg AB7R

    Greg, I have configured DAX 1 device, checking "listen this device" in Windows audio tab form, but I'm not sure all PC soundcards are able to do this. The PC soundcard is the preferred listen device (old Lenovo X61 in warehouse for daily shipments in WoodBoxRadio), so, the DAX1 is routed to PC audio out. The latency is, as usual, "WIndows generated". I have tried 40M SSB only. The LAN is a Gigabyte, a simple wired 8 ports switch for all my PCs at WBR and F6K for test. 73 Beppe ik3vig

    Thanks Beppe. I will have to plug in some headphones to see if I have the audio there. The mixer levels are bouncing around while listening so I know its there...just need to get it to the phones or speakers. 73 Greg

    Works pretty well here - I have DAX 2 set up with "listen to this device" in Windows. DAX 1 is set up for my digital modes. When I am out and about, I can use LogMeIn (or any other favorite remote desktop app) to see the SSDR screen on your home PC. By engaging DAX 2, audio streams very well. I've tried it on my iphone over cellular data, on my home LAN, and other LANs. It's a very cool feature. You may want to use PC speakers that can be turned off/down from the speakers themselves (not from Windows) so your audio adventures don't wake the house. Also - for Takeshi - RIT/XIT are implemented on both the SSDR interface and through the FlexControl. Very handy. You do have to toggle them on by pressing the RIT/XIT buttons.

    Greg, Right Click on your speaker Icon on the task bar. select playback devices and when that window opens select the Recording Tab. Under this Tab double click on the RX/TX number you are using and when this window opens select the Listen Tab and check 'Listen to this device' box in that Tab. Right underneath make sure the 'Playback through this device' has your PC speakers selected in the window. MX and HNY Larry K1UO

    Thanks Larry. That is what I have been trying to do but somehow when I did the install on my ultrabook I no longer seem to be able to connect anything to its internal speakers. Even online videos no longer play any sound and I cannot find the internal sound device for the speaker in the playback options. I am going to try a set of headphones to see if that works. 73 and Merry Christmas!

    Ah...I understand..I read on here that some of the installs have changed the default sound device to something other than the original speaker setting. Hard to change the speakers back to the default playback device if you cant find the speaker Icon! Good luck..... Lots for this old fella to learn and more importantly...remember.
