Is your DAX configured and switched on? I had the same thing happen a while back and found that DAX and CAT need to be properly configured and switched on.

I have the same problem occasionally.  I've found that on occasion it helps to reload the Rig Description File which [sometimes] causes the Flex and FLDigi to sync up and indicate proper frequency, other times it doesn't help at all.  Quite frustrating at times.  I'd like to find a solid solution to this.  Going back to an external sound card interface has crossed my mind.

Jim - I wanted to add, there are a few good video's on youtube about setting up FLDigi, and Flex DAX and CAT.  I've followed those instructions to the letter and most times everything works, but on occasion I still have frequency un-sync issues.

Sounds like CAT is not configured properly. There are extensive installation notes available (search the Community) and Tim's (W4TME) excellent Flex-specific config files for your operating pleasure.

James and all,

The current (for SSDR version 1.6 and later) Fldigi xml files are here:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/fldigi/files/xmls/flex/

Tim posted the new files to Sourceforge in January 2016, but the http://www.w1hkj.com/xmlarchives.html page has not been updated since August 2015.

73, Bob, N7ZO

Are you using the Fldigi companion program Flrig? I find it does much better rig control than hamlib or other options. 73 de Carl N8VZ
