How can I change the DAX Control Panel (v2.2.8) to the second FLEX radio?

I have two FLEX radios (6700 and 6500, both V2 License) on my Network. The first radio is connected to the Maestro, and now when I open SmartSDR 2.2.8 on my computer the DAX Control Panel connects to the first radio, even when I choose the second radio on SmartSDR. The CAT Control Panel is correct and shows me the second radio. What I am doing wrong?  Thanks a lot

    DAX does not have the radio chooser capability.

    Without a filter file, if both radios are powered up when DAX is started, it will connect to the first one it hears on the network.  You can use a filter file to only connect to a particular radio.  It is much easier to make sure that the radio you do not want to connect to is powered off, Start DAX have it connect to the proper radio and then power up the other radio.
