... ok, GOOD LUCK with that...

You're gonna need it!

(Not trying to be snide, but you should really read about all the crap tha MS has pulled, and how much damage to so many pc's caused by their ignorant, untested updates for years... AND ESPECIALLY THE PAST SEVERAL MONTHS!!!)

p.s. I"ve been dealing with MS garbage for nearly 4 decades! If it wern't for the fact that some of the best ham programs & other general use programs run only on windows, I'd dump it altogether; in favor of android, chrome, etc.

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.
