Since updating to 1.3.8 I am experiencing some "Stuttering" in Dax RX that seems intermittent and perhaps related to throughput in the network. Here are some particulars:
Running Flex 6300 usually with one panadaptor and 1 slice.
Quad core intel chip and motherboard SSD and PCIE Video HDMI to Monitor.
Uninstalled old version of SSDR, Dax, And CAT. Rebooted and confirmed removal.
Installed 1.3.8 with new Dax and Cat. Updated wireless card from a 54 mb to a 350 mb wireless card, dual band. No issues with previous version of SSDR or Dax or Cat. New Version I have noticed a bit of a "Stuttering" in the Dax Audio RX which has been coming and going, sometimes correcting itself and sometimes been correctable by clicking Dax off then back on from the Dax Console. It seems also to be related to the network throughput because it happens a Lot less at 300 mb than when I first ran the new version with the 54 mb card. Any Thoughts? tnx in advance.
This sounds like the same thing I have been experiencing and has caused me to drop back to 1.3.0, which does not have this problem. (Digital apps would not decode well with the repetitive stuttering.)
My DAX RX audio stuttering sometimes corrected itself, but mostly I had to toggle the blue channel enable button on the DAX panel to correct it.
I have already sent an email with a sample mp3 file to Steve, but have not heard anything back.
It would be interesting to hear how many others are having this problem.
Update to my earlier reply. I went to the Windows Control Panel, Sound setup, Recording tab, Selected DAX Audio RX1 properties, Selected Listen tab, Checked Listen to this device. When I see the distortion in the WSJT-x waterfall I hear the DAX audio being interrupted or pulsing about 3-4 times a second. This can also be heard on the audio of all signals (SSB CW RTTY PSK) whether selecting DIGU or USB modes AGC set to OFF. When cycling off/on the blue DAX 1 button, all audio on DAX RX1 is clear and uninterrupted until next distortion period begins. Good news is this DAX problem does not affect the transmit audio. I have listened to the DAX transmit audio and it is appears to be clean.
I have audio recordings (.wma format) of this DAX problem. If Flex needs these recordings contact me through my email address I will provide them.
It seems that I can do a full install then run the older version from its directory.
