I don't recall earlier versions doing this,  I have latest 3.17 now.

I can select RX eq OR TX eq but not both.

What am I missing?

EQ has two parts. There are no changes at EQ here with 3.16. You can switch between RX and TX and it shows you what is the status and what value are valid if you have switch  ON the visible EQ

You are not the first person to be confused by the equalizer interface. RX and TX are independent. When the RX button is blue, the ON/OFF button controls whether the RX equalizer is on or off and the gain sliders adjust RX eq.
However, when the TX button is blue, the ON/OFF button and the sliders control the TX eq, completely independently from RX eq.
Try setting up both with clearly different settings and toggle back and forth between RX and TX and the light will come on!

I fully understand each can be controlled, just want some indication they both can be used automatically.

Maybe they can be used both but display is misleading to me.

Seems to me like if while your transmitting and you have tx eq on it should maybe turn green to indicate its active and show the settings.

Ok heres what I get, again running 3.17

In the eq I can slect rx and on, then tx and on, each time I select tx or rx the other goes off.

they have very different settings, when I key up the eq window shows zero change.

I select rx and its on, I select tx and its on.....

I just did the deed and went on to 3.1.7.  Same treatment on the EQ.  I am assuming the indicator button tx and rx only light up to show the one you are adjusting and the off/on turns on the eq for both, at least thats the way it appears to me.  Been running two PC sessions on the 6500 and that seems to be working fine.  In the morning I will fire up the Maestro and try the "Control" mode and see how that goes.  Mike

They both can be used separately and saved in your Profiles.
