No waterfall in WSJT -- help with setup?

Hi guys.  Trying to get WSJT-X set up and I'm getting there.  Problem is that I don't have a waterfall on that screen.  I pass the PTT and CAT tests, and I am sure I have the right audio selections for rx1 and tx1.  But no waterfall.  DAX shows RX stream for Slice A streaming and it shows audio.  But no waterfall activity in WSJT even though there are loud stations at 14074.  I have watched Mike's excellent video a bunch of times.  I'm sure I'm missing something obvious but can someone Elmer me here and help me out?  Using 6400M.

Be sure mode is DIGU with desired bandwidth, DAX selected in xmit.

Mode is DIGU -- by the way I have HRD/DM780 working perfectly so pretty sure the problem might be on the WSJT side?  Just no waterfall.  I am really stumped. When I hit "tune" on WSJT it transmits a carrier, so that's working.  When I go into the slice A menu DAX is set to "1".  That's right, right?  And Dax is blue and streaming and I have RX1 set in WSJT.  Pulling my hair out.

Is “Monitor” selected in the WSJTX window?

OK guys, I fooled around with settings and it just started working.  I THINK I'm there.  Had several QSOs anyway.  I have the spectrum display but no real waterfall.  But otherwise everything is working.  Thanks for the help.

Got the waterfall to appear by fooling around with the slider settings.  Everything is working with my 6400M/WSJT-X setup.  Thanks for putting up with me.

Just starting to try out WSJT-X and my 6600M... Question,,, WSJT  radio settings show the Flex 6XXX radio, but I recall that you dont want to use this, you want to use a Kenwood TS-2000 radio??? Is that still the case? I have version 1.9 installed..
