CW Skimmer Problems

I am trying to get CW skimmer running and it appears to work fine when going to slice A but not other slices. I am using skimmer V2.0 and sdrbridge v1.5.1. Slice A is running in one panadapter and slice b in a second panadapter. The slice A pa is configured to dax iq1 and the slice B pa is configured to dax iq2. Skimmer is configuredĀ  to port 7310 for A slice and 7320 for B slice. DAX shows both iq channels are streaming and set to 96K. I can bring up skimmer just fine on slice A but when I enable slice B no data is transferred to skimmer. Any help as to what I might be doing wrong would be most welcome....

Thanks and 73's,
Harry

Well the problem has been solved after lots of fooling around. I finally discovered that I had duplicate DAX playback devices. So I used the scripts provided by Flex to uninstall the DAX drivers. Then I went into windows and looked at the list of playback devices and found I still had a number of DAX devices. So I highlighted each one, right clicked, and clicked on disable which got rid of it. I then rebooted the machine and checked again and all was well so then I went back in and ran the manual install scripts. Brought DAX back up and played with skimmer and now am able to run skimmer ok in multiple panadapters. Don't know how I ended up with duplicates but it was relatively easy to get rid of them.

Thanks,
Harry
