all of a sudden I get this error message when using CWSkimmer and SDRBridge.....




lots of looking but I can't find a solution.....Flex 6500 and Win 10 Pro

Realtek HD Audio output is my default audio....things had been working well but now I'm at a lose in my attempts to fix this problem...should also mention I've tried DDutil & SDRBridge but no joy either way.....also Realtek HD Audio is working well in all other apps.

Thanks for any help/suggestions...

Alex ...what I've found is that if something else is using Realtek Audio out, you'll get the error message....turns out Skype is set on my machine to autostart when I boot up.....it uses Realtek audio out....I found this out because I got a call on Skype while Skimmer was running and Skype gave me an error message.....

I switched to ur approach of using SPDIF out and all seems to be fine....skimmer and skype both working....wonder if this is a Win 10 issue? What OS are u using.

If I learn any more, I'll let you know.
