DAX receive working normally.
Sort of a annoyance, to put it mildly.
Sure hope the guys in TX come up with a cure fast....
I 'think' I reinstalled v1.3 to fix it last time....
The last time it happened to me I worked everything I could in the various Windows Audio controls in terms of configuration, etc. I ended up using an image of my machine and reinstalling it (I use Acronis and do a incremental back-up every 3 days). I had added nothing, did no updates so the problem is as Dudley and Tim have said - something to do with the remuneration of the audio devices. I did not dig into the registry to see if anything changed there.
I know that Flex has this high on the radar screen as a variety of posts about this problem are showing "acknowledged".
In my case, my PC senses if speakers are plugged in and assigns them. I have no speakers installed so the "green check marks" show up on DAX TX and RX 8. If this happens again, I will plug in a dummy plug or speakers into the speaker jack and the same for a PC mic and see what that does.
My guess is we will see a fix come out before 1.4 for all of us DAX "junkies".
Since you seem to continually have this problem I would suggest the following
1. Take screen shots of every step you do
2. Write a detailed narrative of everything you do
Next time Read your notes
My guess as to your issue
Stop DAX completely
That usually fixes it
If not it's likely a windows issue where windows has re-enumerated the DAX line.
In which case go into ur windows audio settings and set it correctly.
Usually no need to reinstall drivers
BTW. You are probably best served by just leaving everything running all the time so u won't have startup issues
I do...I have been running remote for more than 4 weeks now. No issues with leaving it alone.
I have done all of your steps
But having DAX stop twice is not what I'd call having this problem continually. Frequently maybe.
It's two occasions, of some obvious fault.
As I'm not the only person suffering a loss of DAX.
I'm just making a guess, but possibly it's due to my diverse operating.
I do, cw, rtty, psk, JT65 and JT9, an occasional SSB qso. And I'm constantly switching back and forth between the modes.
Which on CW (which I've never lost) is the only non-DAX program.
The fact that it's TRANSMIT portion of DAX could be significant as basically the receive modes are similar.
That may not be relevant. I'm just guessing.
In the 10 to 14 days that transmit DAX was working, I made 139 qsos
Only 1 SSB
the rest were machine sent via CWX
Finger are a tad crooked due to arthritis and my fist reflects this.
Unfortunately...most of my operating requires two way communication. Hearing the stations is only half of the requirements for the Quixote Quest.
