I'm no expert, but everywhere I read about setup, your sound should be 16 bit, 48000Hz (DVD Quality) both audio input and output.  73 Herb WB8ASI

OK, I was fiddling around and fixed my problem.  I did several things and I am not sure which did the trick but here is what I did:


  1. I disabled the CODEC microphone device and then re-enabled it.
  2. In the sound control panel recording tab I accessed the properties and under the advanced tab on the properties page I set the sample rate and bit depth to 1 channel, 16 bit, 16000Hz
  3. Also on the advanced properties page I unchecked the “Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device”


I am decoding signals again!

My windows 10 computer just did an update.  I was operating FT8 just fine before the update this morning.  After the update I found that the CODEC names I had given to the TS990 were no longer present.  I fixed that and I can now get tones to the rig but I get the “Error in Sound Input” dialog with the message: “An error opening the audio input device has occurred”


The update was “2020-05 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1909 for x64 based Systems (KB556799)”


I have verified that WSJTX should have access to the “microphone”


I am running WSJTX 2.0.1 just in case anything related to the audio may have changed in the more recent versions.


Any ideas?

I use Kenwood TS-890S with Ham Radio Deluxe. When I installed HRD a month or so ago everything worked great regarding WSJT-X. How it has stopped receiving. The vertical receive scale on the left hand side of WSJT-X shows no signal at all. I have not changed anything. Any ideas?  I have the Codec USB selected in WSJT-X and in HRD.
