Locked Re: WSJT-X suddenly deaf?

Turning off update is NOT the answer. You will be sad about this when you miss something critical ,especially a security thing. Find out what the real -problem is. I have ZERO problems with audio after update.

Ted - did your Windows 'update'?  (Never update Windows!)


Win10 updates have a nasty habit of screwing up your audio mixer & your codec settings!


Recheck those & TURN OFF Win10 update; by going into the windows icon in bottom left corner - type ser(vices); which brings up a list; go down to Windows update & disable it!  NOTE: you have to check it on a regular basis because update will turn itself back on... (stupid windows & microsoft) (seriously, we need to all file a class action lawsuit against MS to force them to provide a permanently turn off windows/stop "forced" updates!)

I've been using the software on FT8 with a Tigertronics SignalLink, but suddenly a few days ago it has gone deaf.  Nothing appears in Band Activity, and the Receiving nomograph stays at zero, which is odd because normally in the past even when the USB connection from the SignalLink hardware was not attached, the Receiving field is jumping around. For instance, right now I am not at the radio and on another computer, and when I run WSJT here with no audio input, that Receiving window acts as if there are signals present.


I*'ve been through everything. I am able to transmit OK.


Any suggestions? Everything worked fine til very recently.
