Having *major* probs with SmartSDR, but have opened a helpdesk ticket so won't bore you with those.

I noticed that DAX 'steals' my PC speaker's output. If I set the output to my speakers (in the panel that shows all the DAX ports) the change does not stick. I found myself disbling DAX port one after another as the next one along picked up my sound card's output. As I cannot use my 6300 at all at the moment, I uninstalled SmartSDR/DAX drivers and now have my speakers back. When I next install, how can I prevent the issue?

Win 7 x64, was using SmartSDR 1.3.0.

Hi, I had the same issue. However, if you right click on the little speaker icon on the task bar and select playback devices, you can select speakers and change it to default to get your speakers back.
