New 6500 out of the box yesterday, lovin it! Got DM780 working even.
I am looking for the adjustment to lower the audio input level to the xmtr, such as one would do on Digital modes (i.e. psk31) to prevent overdrive and drawing ALC.

On page 124 of the 6000 series software users guide, bullet item that says Audio Input drop down. It discusses the DAX selection vs MIC, BAL, or Line. When I look for DAX within that drop down DAX does not appear.  Should it?

On the Same panel where you select MIC,BAL,LINE, and ACCY, Look to the right, there are 2 buttons +ACC, and DAX, To enable using DAX as the audio source click the DAX button and turn it blue. I'm assuming you have also found the DAX control panel icon in the desktop tray. Double click that icon and you can adjust the TX and RX levels of the DAX connections.

The drop down menu selects whichever hardware connection your using. The DAX button overrides the menu selection, and switches to DAX.

You adjust the level of a hardware input with the slider next to the menu. and adjust the levels of the software DAX connections on the DAX control panel.
