CW Skimmer no longer tracking frequency after update to 1.6.21, Does not change frequency display if radio changes band or or frequency in a band?? 

see signals in window but frequency stays the same even if I change bands. Can not click on a signal and have radio frequency change. Appears to not being talking between 6300 and CW Skimmer anymore.

Any help would be great!!!...Ed

Ed, how are you connecting CW Skimmer to SmartSDR?

Hi Ed,
Are you using SDR-Bridge?  

Frequency display and tracking problems are often incorrect Telnet settings. 

Some more notes about SDR-Bridge and CWS setup here:

Resolved by after many tries to get it working I used the slash and burn method. Deleted SDR-Bridge and CW Skimmer then reinstalled with new copies. Now up and running. Hopefully will not come back...Thank You...Ed

I noticed a few oddities but was able to get them fixed when it happened by grabbing the pan adapter with the mouse and shaking it back and forth for a short second and all come back in line.

Most notably what I was noticing was the pan adapter and the water fall didn't line up.

Running latest flex update, sdr bridge and skimmer.

Didn't think much of it but when I saw this thought it was worth mentioning.

My workflow for CW Skimmer:

1. Start one of my WinKeyer profiles, which has DAX I/Q set at 96k
2. Start my ZLP electronics CW Keyer
3. Start HRD Digital Master CW-WinKeyer
4. Start SDRBridge with CW Skimmer set at 96k
5. Tune once to a preset frequency from CW Skimmer

Signal is spot on, you can cklick-tune frome all three programs now
(SSDR,DM,CWS)
