FreeDV - The desktop app doesn't show SN bar. It is blue and never moves? FreeDV works fine otherwise.

Installed FreeDV and the FreeDV waveform without issue.  I've had a few QSO's, which were fine.  However, the FDV applet is supposed to show S/N in a green bar.  I see a blue bar, which is not annotated and never moves.  Text is being decoded in the text box.

Seems that for now that is all we get.

Also the waveform version is not ready to bands that use LSB or for the upgraded 1600 version of FreeDV is seems.

Not certain what the update /upgrade process is , or even who is doing it.

That feature is currently not available in the FreeDV GUI.  We have this on the list to address in the future.

This is a problem with putting out an experimental Waveform for a mode that is being rapidly developed.  It calls out for active maintenance -- which we really can't expect for now, or can we?

Has anyone worked with the full FreeDV PC client and the Flex 6000 as opposed to the Waveform?  That would be the way to get the most current version, I expect. It should run like Fldigi or wsjtx, but it would be a pain unless you're set up to run audio through your PC (mic and speakers/phones).

The full app works fine through your PC audio and DAX.
