locked High CPU load affects FT8 decode

Jim Cooper
 

I am running WSJT-X and JTalert for FT8 on a somewhat
limited resource Win 10 PC and tonight I noticed that the
waterfall was a bit 'jumpy' ... it would display, then pause
momentarily, then display ... on those cycles there usually
was no decode at the end. (even though I have the priority
for wsjtx.exe set to HIGH, using the Task Manager).

Checking the CPU usage, it was showing over 90% all the
time.  The highest user was WmiPrvSE.exe task, but that
was never more than about 45%.

Doing some 'google research' I found that this is not
an uncommon situation.  The reasons are a bit tecky.
I found a page where the author claims to have solved
the problem --

https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-other_settings/wmi-provider-host-high-cpu-usage-and-laptop/44cb3953-a883-404a-a94f-ee4f363d3a4b

[don't you love those short URLs? !!]

Following his steps my Event Viewer did not show
anything like the log he was targeting.

Reading some of the tecky stuff about WMI Provider Host,
it warns that if you suspend the task there might be problems with trying to start programs.

Feeling daring, I took the challenge and 'suspended'
WmiPrvSE.exe in Task Manager.  The CPU usage
immediately dropped to around 35% to 45% and the
waterfall stepped smoothly, and decodes displayed just
about every cycle.  None of the open programs seemed to
be affected otherwise.

I don't recommend messing with this fix if
you don't feel comfortable using Task Manager
and the Performance Monitor, but it certainly
made a difference in my FT8/FT4 decoding.

locked Multiple HDSDR to multiple RSP1A

Mark, WD4ELG
 

How do I tell which instance of HDSDR is connected to which RSP1A?  I see the serial numbers on the RSP1A units, but I can’t see in HDSDR to tell which unit is assigned to each instance of software.

 

Thanks.

What was missing was the audio coming back.
Have you checked Windows Privacy settings to confirm that the
microphone is enabled?

PC Settings -> Privacy -> microphone -> "Allow Apps to access
your microphone" and "Allow desktop apps to access your microphone"

Windows 10 will default to blocking the mic unless it is specifically
permitted.

Also make sure the TS-2000 menu is set to: 50C *at least* 5 and the
RX control on the front of Signalink is set to *at least* 12:00.

Hi Joe,
Windows was configured so that the default sound devices (in/out) were NOT the signal link.WSJT-X was configured to use the signallink for Input and output. The problem was getting the audio into the pc back from the rig through the signallink. PTT was able to be tripped using either VOX or CAT. The fact that I was able to get the rig to transmit using VOX tells me that audio was going from the PC through the signallink to the rig.What was missing was the audio coming back.
If I am not mistaken, and Georgina can correct me if I am wrong, Georgina mentioned in one of her previous replies that she hooked up headphones to the back of the signallink but could not hear any audio either.If that is the case, then either the rig itself has a technical issue, or the problem resides with either a bad cable of a faulty signallink.

Hello,
This is most helpful and appreciated. I had set the default sounds before FT8 had been attempted. I don't know if an update or something has undone  my settings. As I have been leaving it for Sam to set up via team viewer I have not needed speech. Just to read team viewer password then I unload it. It is something I know needs addressing. The laptop is purely for FT8 so I don't use it any other time. While Sam is working on audio I don't want to go messing about with any settings.
My concern is to know where audio from the radio can be found. Especially, as I could get the faulty parts replaced, should that be my problem. So the quicker I can confirm that these new parts are all right the quicker I will get using FT8. I really appreciate you translating the diagrams for me. Please could you tell me what does N / C mean?
Thank you.

I hoped I would know how to check the RJ45 side. could someone tell

Being a screen reader user as soon as I plug the SL USB's cable into
the laptop, my screen reader uses the SL and I cannot get any screen
reader to stop using the SL as it's sound card.
This is an indication that you have not configured Windows 10 as
specified in the Signalink Windows 10 Manual (page 6).  You *MUST*
configure Windows 10 so that the "Default Device" for audio playback
is the soundcard in your computer and the "Default Device" for

Hi Sam,
use VOX. The TS-2000 must be keyed via the ACC socket to pick up audio from the same socket and mute the mic input, let the SignaLink USB do the PTT. This assumes the correct configuration board wiring is set up in the SignaLink USB.

Hi Bill,

I changed the radio to TS2000 and made sure that CAT was working.
Baud rate is set to 9600 which I believe is the correct setting for the SignalLink.
OI also tried setting Mode to USB then tried Data/Pkt, no audio.
A friend of mine had his TS2000 working with WSJT-X and signallink so I know that it should work
Unfortunately , he no longer has the TS2000 hooked up so he can't check the settings.
There might be a problem in the cable connection to the TS2000 but there is no way that I can test for that on my end.

We are running into a problem with the signal link connection.
It seems that there is no audio coming through the signal link.
If there is anyone out there that is using the TS2000 with WSJT-X could
you forward me the all the appropriate menu settings in the TS2000.
The appropriate Audio In/Out are already set in WSJT-X.
We have menus 50b and 50c set to 8 and still no audio out and no

If I switch audio in to the internal mike, WSJT-X does decode via the

You need to do that or you can buy a plug in module for that rig.

This properly routes the audio from and to the radio.

Hi Sam,

use VOX. The TS-2000 must be keyed via the ACC socket to pick up audio from the same socket and mute the mic input, let the SignaLink USB do the PTT. This assumes the correct configuration board wiring is set up in the SignaLink USB.

Hi Bill,

I changed the radio to TS2000 and made sure that CAT was working.

Baud rate is set to 9600 which I believe is the correct setting for the SignalLink.

OI also tried setting Mode to USB then tried Data/Pkt, no audio.

A friend of mine had his TS2000 working with WSJT-X and signallink so I know that it should work
Unfortunately , he no longer has the TS2000 hooked up so he can't check the settings.

There might be a problem in the cable connection to the TS2000 but there is no way that I can test for that on my end.

Hi Joe,

Windows was configured so that the default sound devices (in/out) were NOT the signal link.
WSJT-X was configured to use the signallink for Input and output.
The problem was getting the audio into the pc back from the rig through the signallink. 
PTT was able to be tripped using either VOX or CAT. The fact that I was able to get the
rig to transmit using VOX tells me that audio was going from the PC through the signallink to the rig.
What was missing was the audio coming back. 

If I am not mistaken, and Georgina can correct me if I am wrong, Georgina mentioned in one of her previous replies that she hooked up headphones to the back of the signallink but could not hear any audio either.
If that is the case, then either the rig itself has a technical issue, or the problem resides with either a bad cable of a faulty signallink.

Sam W2JDB

Hello,

This is most helpful and appreciated. I had set the default sounds before FT8 had been attempted. I don't know if an update or something has undone  my settings. As I have been leaving it for Sam to set up via team viewer I have not needed speech. Just to read team viewer password then I unload it. It is something I know needs addressing. The laptop is purely for FT8 so I don't use it any other time. While Sam is working on audio I don't want to go messing about with any settings.

My concern is to know where audio from the radio can be found. Especially, as I could get the faulty parts replaced, should that be my problem. So the quicker I can confirm that these new parts are all right the quicker I will get using FT8. I really appreciate you translating the diagrams for me. Please could you tell me what does N / C mean?

Thank you.

If the op has not done so, I strongly suggest he go to Tigertronics web site and down load

the latest manual for the Signalink. It is 16 ages with pictures of settings along with

the printed instructions. He should  read it 2 or 3 times before trying to do the settings.

Hello Joe,
That's great. However, I hoped I would know how to check the RJ45 side. could someone tell me how Tigertronics instruct the jumpers without the module for the TS 2000? Then if there is a reading that way I can then check the module does indeed link as it should.
I see it is very tactile underneath and might be easier to test. Providing I reverse the order would that be sensible?
Having never seen such board markings, I know symbols are used but would a non experienced sighted person be able to describe letters to me like RX or are they symbols?
I much appreciated your description.
Thank you.

According to the original Signalink Manual (before the "modules")
the 16 pin "socket" pins are as followed (numbered according to
convention for a DIP socket)

1 - RJ45 pin 1
2 - RJ45 pin 2
3 - RJ45 pin 3
4 - RJ45 pin 4
5 - RJ45 pin 5
6 - RJ45 pin 6
7 - RJ45 pin 7
8 - RJ45 pin 8
9 - ground (common)
10 - ground (common)
11 - ground (common)
12 - no contact
13 - no contact
14 - PTT
15 - MIC (TX audio)
16 - SPK (RX audio)

With the front of the Signalink to your left, pins 9 - 16 will
be on the left side of the socket (numbered top to bottom). If
you have sighted help the pin functions are identified on the
circuit board.

Note transmit audio level is approximately 100 mV RMS (maximum)
for connection to a Kenwood ACC2 input.

Sam-

have the jumpers inside the signalink been set up for the TS2000?

You need to do that or you can buy a plug in module for that rig.

This properly routes the audio from and to the radio.

Hi Sam,

use VOX. The TS-2000 must be keyed via the ACC socket to pick up audio from the same socket and mute the mic input, let the SignaLink USB do the PTT. This assumes the correct configuration board wiring is set up in the SignaLink USB.

Hi Bill,

PTT is Cat and is working properly.
Initially she the radio settings to none and PTT to VOX.
Was able to key the radio, but did not have any audio coming back.
I changed the radio to TS2000 and made sure that CAT was working.

Baud rate is set to 9600 which I believe is the correct setting for the SignalLink.

OI also tried setting Mode to USB then tried Data/Pkt, no audio.

A friend of mine had his TS2000 working with WSJT-X and signallink so I know that it should work
Unfortunately , he no longer has the TS2000 hooked up so he can't check the settings.

There might be a problem in the cable connection to the TS2000 but there is no way that I can test for that on my end.

Hello,

I find your post offensive and a waste of bandwidth

If you have followed the thread you will know I have indeed purchased the Tigertronics parts. I have not attempted to save money. Being blind I have to spend money where sighted hams could just use the wires to set the jumpers. You are also ignorant enough to not notice that my name is Georgina. So to be clear she did buy the right parts and it doesn't work for her.

Hello Sam,

I came across this issue last year.

After further investigation and discussion, we concluded as follows:

- Using CAT to controll the TS2000X you can only have audio from the
frontpanel.

This is due to the stupid firmware commands of the TS2000x.

- You can use the CAT to control the TS2000x but you should use a
separate USB control for the PTT.

This control can be connected to the ACC plug, where 2 pins are
available to move the radio into TX mode.

One of them must be used to be able to have audio from and to the ACC
plug. ( I'm not in the shack, thus cannot tell you which of the two
is the correct one)

Hope this helps you out.

Hello Don,

I am sorry your posts make no sense to me. So how does a speaker tell me if the TS-2000is not sending audio down ACC2? How does a speaker tell me if the Tigertronics SL_CAB-13K lead is delivering the audio signal to the SL? How does the speaker test the audio is in the SL? I have already asked and stated that by putting headphones in either of the sockets I cannot hear any audio. Nor can Sam see any audio on the waterfall. So please tell me how to use a speaker to identify why my Tigertronics SignalLink USB with the Tigertronics jumper and lead is not working as advertised.

Being blind using a speaker would be ideal for me.

You set the deal that you would share the menu options when I have the Tigertronics parts. If you look through this thread I have stated time and time again. I do have the parts and pissed of that they don't work, faulty or my radio is faulty. A few people have been helpful and offered menu settings and you are quite welcome to join them as Sam has put a lot of time in helping me. Only to be fraught by no audio coming into the computer. So if you have anything constructive please feel free to offer it. If you have any suggestions what I could do as a blind but not stupid ham please offer them.

Thank you.

HI All,

I am trying to help a blind lady ham in the UK connect her TS2000 to WSJT-X.
I have CAT control working without a problem.

We are running into a problem with the signal link connection.
It seems that there is no audio coming through the signal link.
If there is anyone out there that is using the TS2000 with WSJT-X could
you forward me the all the appropriate menu settings in the TS2000.

The appropriate Audio In/Out are already set in WSJT-X.

We have menus 50b and 50c set to 8 and still no audio out and no
signals on the waterfall

If I switch audio in to the internal mike, WSJT-X does decode via the
audio from the radio speaker so I know that WSJT-X is working properly.

Any help would be appreciated

Hi Sam,
what do you have checked for "Settings->Radio->PTT Method"?

Hello Dan,

I guess so, I am sure Sam will confirm. Being a screen reader user as soon as I plug the SL USB's cable into the laptop, my screen reader uses the SL and I cannot get any screen reader to stop using the SL as it's sound card. NVDA and Narrater just try to use the SL, I have tried using the 3.5mm sockets on the back to hear my screen reader to reconfigure them to use the laptop speakers but this doesn't seem to work. So I need to unload my screen reader to start QLog which is self voicing. 

So I am sure that Windows 10 is loading the right drivers for the SL. I'll have to ask if any other blind SL users have been able to hear their screen reader through the  SL. I think even Sam couldn't stop NVDA from using the SL as its sound card.

have you confirmed that the Signalink is showing in Device Manager, Audio devices? It is usually "USB CODEC", both as microphone and speakers.

Since you have the Signalink prewired jumper thing I don't think you need to tear apart the signalink before you know the PC is seeing it as a sound card.  

be sure the USB is plugged in at pc and SL.

I see it is very tactile underneath and might be easier to test. Providing I reverse the order would that be sensible?

Having never seen such board markings, I know symbols are used but would a non experienced sighted person be able to describe letters to me like RX or are they symbols?

  2. Increase the computational capability of my CPU to the top by: Norton Utilities Premium – Ultra Performance. Maximizes system performance by engaging all CPU cores at full clock speed.
  3. Set all the 4 instances of WSJT-X to 14.074Mhz for maximum FT8 input rate. Input rate was greater than 36 decodes per cycle as measured by JTAlert on each instance.
  4. All 4 JTAlert instances did crash after about 2 hours. Maximum temperature did reach 100 Celsius.
  5. This evening at 19:50 I did restart the  4x JTAlert and put all WSJT-X to 7.074MHz. Decode rate is 33-36 per 15 Sec cycle. CPU frequency is 4240Mhz. Max temp is 89 Celcius. One JTALert instance did crash at 20:10 and I did restart it. 20:13 another instant did crash at 91 Celsius. At 22:20 another 2 instances did crash an 91 C.

Hi Sam,

use VOX. The TS-2000 must be keyed via the ACC socket to pick up audio from the same socket and mute the mic input, let the SignaLink USB do the PTT. This assumes the correct configuration board wiring is set up in the SignaLink USB.

Baud rate is set to 9600 which I believe is the correct setting for the SignalLink.

OI also tried setting Mode to USB then tried Data/Pkt, no audio.

A friend of mine had his TS2000 working with WSJT-X and signallink so I know that it should work
Unfortunately , he no longer has the TS2000 hooked up so he can't check the settings.

There might be a problem in the cable connection to the TS2000 but there is no way that I can test for that on my end.
