New to digital, but I’m having an issue on 40m only. There is a lot of signals on 7.077 on the waterfalls but nothing is decoding into the band activity box. Transmit also works fine.

This issue is only on 40m. I have made many contacts and the band activity fills up fast with station traffic. Crazy thing is that 40m is my strongest band with a quality ant. I’ve checked all of the filters and I’m listening 3K wide.
I think...
You should be on USB and dial 7074 kHz.
If your receiver is on 7077 LSB, WSJT-X will not decode but the waterfall will look 'normal'.
Your bandpass should be about 7074.2 through 7077 kHz.
IOW, your receiver should be passing audio tones from ~200 to ~3000 Hz to WSJT-X.

Hope this helps,
