locked Re: Missing Audio Output Choice

AA5UN, Marty

Funny that mine just did it again.  Typically happens when the laptop goes to sleep.  I had to unplug the 705 USB and plug it back in.  Then restarted the program and it worked fine.  I really think you need to not allow the computer to powersave or go to sleep.

Marty, I did try several reboots without luck.


Bill, I tried rc3 without luck although the behavior was slightly different. In the drop down boxes I no longer have Windows default device as an option, the only option listed is the specific device that happens to be the Windows default device. I did first uninstall 2.2 and also removed the WSJT folders from the Appdev\<username>\WSJTX directory.  I also tried going into the Windows advanced sound settings where it allows you to set the devices for specific applications. I was able to select the correct devices there, but WSJT-X did not honor them.

Hi Kelly,


can you try WSJT-X v2.3.0 RC3 from here: https://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/K1JT/wsjtx.html or from here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/wsjt/files/wsjtx-2.3.0-rc3/ and report back if it works better for you please?

Yes I did try removing the devices and letting them reinstall, it did not make a difference. I also disabled power management on all USB root bridges in device manager. In terms of devices, I have the built-in speakers and microphone in the laptop, the speakers and microphone from an external USB webcam and the speakers and microphone from the rig. All 3 sets of devices are available for use in DM 780, Fldigi and Winlink. Only in WSJT-X do I only have the choice of the default device.

Hi Kelly,

if rebooting your PC does not resolve this issue then try deleting the
audio devices that are not behaving correctly in Windows Device Manager,
then reboot again to allow them to re-install automatically.
