Got a request to help a neighbor and left the shack with the rig on, and just monitoring.
Came back about an hour later to find the computer had shut down.
(Normally it runs 24/7)
Restarted everything to find that my previous problem of no DAX Transmit had returned.
Nothing I could do would get DAX to transmit (receive as always was fine).
I hate restore points but as a last resort, I reverted to a restore point I had made the very same morning.
Everything restored as normal, all my programs, wsjt worked perfectly IN RECEIVE mode but still no DAX transmit.
All the Blue Dax buttons are enabled
Correct Dax channels are selected
Dax Control Panel is on the screen and correctly deflecting with in accordance with signals in the passband.
But just like the previous event, there is no audio output when attempting to transmit.
Same thing with rtty, psk, rig goes into xmit mode, but it doesn't seem that DAX is sending the audio needed for transmission
CW works properly, but that doesn't employ DAX (as far as I know)
So has anyone have any idea, why receive DAX is working but Transmit DAX does not?
And why does it just stop on it's own?
My experience has been that the reason for no transmit is due to no CAT connection. I use HRD v6.2 and that is my sure indication of the problem; since it would not start, although you receive is normal.
Just make sure that you see the IP address slides above the taskbar or click on DAX that will also wake up the DAX and CAT connection. Or delete DAX and restart it from Windows All Programs.
Check that WSJT is seeing the right DAX TX audio not some random default.
Check that the TX box is check in DAX control Panel, DAX is lit in the side panel, TX is enabled for the slice
Finally if none of those work, then exit DAX and restart DAX.
One of the above will fix it
Is there anyway to reinstall just DAX.
I really hate to do a complete reinstall of SSDR.
As far as I can see, Dax is not a separate piece that can be deleted and reinstalled.
I'm primarily CW and Digital, don't do much SSB.
right now all I can do is CW :-(((
So I went even a step farther. Shut down all software normally,
Shut down the rig by the button, when that finished I pulled the power and waited 20 minutes.
Repowered and started radio normally.
I was really holding out hope
but alas...same issue, can receive signals, see the 'red' in Dax Slice A RX Gain but no joy in the TX Gain.
Quiet as a churchmouse.
and obviously the wattmeter showed no output either.
Oh I did want to say, as I had the cabinet open, I could see the 6K button go red, so it did go into xmit mode, just no audio to send.
I've tried other slices, with the same result. Or more correctly more of the same, nothing!
It's going into xmit mode but there is no signal out, as there is no audio to drive it.
I've shut down DAX from the TASK MANAGER
It was installed into the default c:Program Files;FlexRadio System/SmartSDR v1.3.0/DAX
and Sure enough the icon and DAX is there Date of 2014-08-18 3:30PM Application 274 KB
Does that agree with your installs?
If someone would be willing to zip it, and email your copy of DAX to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
It's really the only thing I can think of left.
none of the TX side of any of the choices is working.
I find I still have
4 of each type of DAX
4 DAX Audio TX
4 DAX Reserved IQ RX
4 DAX Reserved Audio RX
Way back when DAX first came out, Those of us who used WinWarbler had to delete four of each DAX as WinWarbler could only handle 10 sound devices of each type and we needed VAC back then
I still have 4 VAC which I saved to use on my Flex5K
Need a guru to tell if that is having some deletrious effect on my system.
But the system worked well till v1.3.0 came along.
That's when I started loosing transmit.
Can any of you gurus make sense out of this?
Or is this just not connected?
The rest of the time it was a setting that I over looked such as activating the Dax channel, activating the Dax button, wrong cat channel for PTT or even more common not setting an active TX slice
Most every time was something I did I and freaked out and couldn't see the solution. Take a deep breath relax and run through the list. I bet it's there somewhere and not equipment
