So last Friday the 6600 arrived from my dealer.Unpacking and installing went smooth , no issues at all.The 6600 weighs a lot less compared to the FT5000 and smaller too...Still need to learn the details but I got the basic stuff going pretty quick.There's enough interesting stories to read on the flexradio community and fiddle around with different settings.I have not yet been able to test the 6600 in a contest , missed the IARU test..Only 1 issue I can't seem to resolve but it's not Flex related.I have SmartSDR installed on 2 different PC's , on 1 PC JTDX works but on the other one I'm getting : an error opening the audio input device occured.Settings on both JTDX progs are exactly the same as in SmartSDR...I'm guessing it's a W10 thing but haven't been able to find it......yet ;)

Sounds like you need to reinstall Dax Drivers on the failed PC. There is a link posted last week about reinstalling Dax drivers. I will post again here when I stop driving

I used this guide

when I had this problem on one of my PC:s - after some figuring out what names to rename and to what I got it working.

Well I finally solved the issue !First un-installed SmartSDR using Revo uninstaller and updated the mobo audio driver , re-installed SmartSDR , checked for ghost audio devices...so far all ok BUT still no go.Finally discovered I had to change the privacy settings of the PC microphone and allow apps to use the mic...THAT did the trick !Thank you Mickey Soft for making this so complicated ....ugh.
