Have been an HRD user for years and configured software with FLEX 6300 and it works great. Now I thought I would give FL Digi a try and was able to get it to decode, and transmit with their xml software. This has probably been asked before...But I can't get the frequency display on FL Digi to sync with the FLEX as it does with HRD nor can I change bands as I do with HRD. Is this a legacy radio remnant of the software? Or am I missing something here?
If the VFO is not showing the same frequency as Slice A, then the CAT interface has not properly contented. The quick way to tell is if the QSY button in the bottom left hand corner is grayed out or not. If it is grayed out, Fldigi and SmartSDR CAT (the radio) are not properly communicating.
I am running Win7 but I will check the compatibility settings. The key to me is in the RigControl settings in the Configure menu. Currently, I have checked "Rig control via external program using xmlrpc remote calls." which seems to be the only option, of the three choices that works. When I say "works" that means I have PTT for sending digital content and PTT stops exactly when it should when the message has been sent. Is there another combination of choices that will also allow the frequency display and band selection function to work?
You may want to review these Fldigi how to articles on the setup. It could be something simple you missed in the setup
