I have the latest version of the SDR Bridge and the CW Skimmer.  When setting up the skimmer, which radio should I select?  On the settings screen for the radio, there is a LO freq box.  What frequency is entered there.  I had things working for a moment but then it all went bad :)  

Any direction would be great.

Pat, here is my setup for Skimmer&bridge:

LO Frequency is put there by SDR bridge.

Be sure to tune a few times using different frequencies and bands until bridge
and skimmer are synchronized. Now if you click twice on a CW Skimmer
waterfall signal, exactly this signal will be tuned to in the SmartSDR slice.

This shows LO frequency = SDR Bridge frequency = SmartSDR slice frequency.

Notice: I intentionally use a 48kHz stream for CW, you can set this in CW Skimmer, but
you must be sure to set the same stream width in DAX control:
