I'm still trying to get N1MM+ working. RX, TX, decoding, radio control, etc all seemed to be working OK.
But now some how I have lost the MMTTY and 2 Tone Decode Windows and have not found anyway to get them back. When I go to the Main Entry window and select the "Window" Tab then select the "Digital Interface" Tab, nothing happens. It originally gave me a whole Table of selections,now no new windows show up, no error messages, nothing changes at all. Trying to read all the manuals but so far nothing helps. Anybody have any ideas.

Hi Al,

Just ruling out the obvious here, but are you setup for a RTTY or digital contest? If you're not setup for one you won't get the DI window open. 

You can try this - File > open log in database (or new log in database) and then select "DX" as the contest. Make sure the mode is set to "RTTY". It should pop up the DI window when you press OK.

Been there done that.  Do what Ria is suggesting.  If you have N1MM running and close the MMTTY windows, MMTTY will not be called the next time N1MM is run even if it has a RTTY log open.   If you close N1MM with MMTTY running, both apps will then boot up together as expected.

You have to start N1MM, then go to it's "FILE" drop down, then start a RTTY log from there, either an existing  or a new one.  That will cause N1MM to call the MMTTY application.  You should have the RTTY sound card and Engine windows back and operating.  That is of course if you have not changed the settings from where you first got the two apps running together.

I spent several hours over a span of two days thrashing around in the china closet trying to get the MMTTY windows back running.  I broke more stuff than I fixed in those two days.

A little trick that usually works, if you close the dig window, providing that you are setup properly in the digital tab try simply typing RTTY in the log callsign window.  usually they will open right back up.

Thanks Ria, Gayle and Chris
 Tried everything and No Joy at all. But I took another Picture of what shows up on my screen. This also shows that I am set up  (I think) for the CQ WPX RTTY contest. I think I will have to start over with a complete uninstall and reload. Thanks again for trying to help.

Al... what make/model of monitor do you use? How is it working for you? I'm looking for a large monitor to replace 3 separate monitors (eventually).

Hi Kevin
The Monitor is really a TV set. Its a Vizio model E48u-DO and is being driven by a HP I7 desktop computer with a Nividia GT 745 set for 4096 X 2160 resolution over one HDMI line. I have had it since early last summer and I am very pleased with the setup. After some trial and errors I got it all running and have had no problems since. I believe it cost just short of $450.00 at Costco. I took another screenshot of it with my 6700 shown full witdth (41" wide (48" diagonal)) with N1MM+, and Logic 9. Plus Flex DAX, Flex CAT and Flex Profile controls Be glad to answer any thing else you may think of.

Amazing Al. I have been asking around about using a TV as a monitor but I got no good replies (various other forums). I currently have a 34" 21:9 4K monitor that cost me over $1K. On either side of that are 27" 16:9 4K monitors. Total cost... way to much! Real estate, not bad but it's still separate monitors so not a clean look and feel.



I'll be looking for a good TV.

Thanks,
Kev

OK Kevin, I replaced three monitors myself and I know that this is much better. Especially chasing the mouse cursor around over the three screens. The cost was good compared to the HiDef monitors and if you don't like the result (I doubt it) put it in the living room. I know the Vizio E48u-DO will work very well at 4096 X 2160. (I had to use MS Paint to reduce the screenshot
from 4096 X 2160 down to 2200 X 1160 to get it below 2 MB so I could upload it). As they say on TV "Try it, you'll like it".
Good Luck,
Al, N4AB

This is most likely not related to the flex, and the best bet would be to bounce it by the N1MM logger plus yahoo group.  Its a great resource
N1MMLoggerplus@yahoogroups.com
I am sure you will figure it out.
