In addition to CAT I also have a SignaLink USB connected to my computer for another radio.  Even though the SignaLink is VOX PTT activated and doesn't use a COM port somehow CAT 1.6.17 keys both the SignaLink and the Flex PTT at the same time.  To avoid this I had to turn off the all of the Auto Switch TX Slice options for all the COM ports in CAT.

Is your application set up to use CAT as the PTT method?

No.  WSJT-X is set to use COM port PTT.  The SignaLink even has it own built in sound device which is mentioned no where in my settings.  Not sure how it could be keyed by CAT.  There's no ghost com ports either.

Try setting it to VOX.

Hexadecimal with it.  I changed WSJT over to use CAT and TS-2000 as the rig type and got it to work right.  (from the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fV0kDWdFswc)    I couldn't get WSJT to use Flex 6xxx as the rig type.  That's why I was using COM port PTT to begin with.
