SmartSDR graphics slow down on transmit

When I transmit with or without power the SmartSDR pan adapter and other graphics movement within the software such as level meter will slow to a crawl. This slowness isn't there when receiving, only transmit. It also happens if the microphone picks up my voice and I have the Enable Level Meter During Receive selected. My transmitted signal is still getting out, as I can monitor myself on a separate radio. This did not happen previous to installing 1.5.1. I've tried re-install of SmartSDR 1.5.1 but no change. Anyone else experience this? (Flex-6500, Win 7, SmartSDR 1.5.1). Should I reset the 6500 and if so what are the steps for a factory reset? Thanks!

I remembered that I had made changes to my AMD Catalyst Control Center settings a week ago to see if I could improve performance on my gaming software. I selected "Override Application Settings" for "Anti-Aliasing" and "Anisotropic Filtering". It helped my gaming software, but appears to hinder SmartSDR. I reset the AMD Catalyst Control Center to use the application settings, and now it looks great again!
