Hi Yvon,

the issue you describe is often due to MS Windows deciding to power down USB audio devices it thinks are not being used. You must disable the power management options for each USB Hub Device listed in Windows Device Manager under "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" (right-click device, select Properties, then Power Management, and uncheck the allow option).

You also must disable the USB Selective Suspend option in the Windows "Power Options->Change plans settings (on the current plan)->Change Advanced Power Settings" open "USB settings", then "USB selecting suspend setting", and click the "Plugged in" option to select Disabled.

As Bob, G8HGN, points out, there is another issue with HDMI monitor connections. HDMI connections include a USB audio connection which too can be unexpectedly powered down when a screen-saver or power-saver function activates. I don't know of any settings to stop that other than making sure graphics card/chip power management settings for the monitor and screen saver are disabled, YMMV.

The root problem is that USB devices are "hot-pluggable" and adding or removing a device, while the system is running, will cause all other devices to be re-enumerated, this can change device identities but Windows does not inform applications using them that they have been shuffled.

Note this issue affects audio devices but not virtual serial ports like those often used for CAT control, virtual serial ports over USB connections seem to be capable of blocking such power saving options, presumably because they are one-to-one connections and Windows can be sure when they are in use.

I suspect there is a simple way to do this a few menu steps down on either the radio or WSJT-X but I cannot find it.

Hi Doug,

if you have the "Settings->Radio->Mode->Data/Pkt" option checked then WSJT-X, via Hamlib, should be selecting USB-D (FIL 1) settings on you rig. Adjust the USB-D1 bandwidth on you rig to maximum. I am not sure if bandwidth settings are recalled per band, if they are then you may need to adjust FIL 1 in USB-D mode for each band you use.

Page 4-4 of the English Basic Manual for the IC-7610 seems to cover IF bandwidth setting. You can set the filters up to 3600 Hz wide in SSB modes like SSB-D

Hi Yvon,
 
There have been several threads on this type of problem. You just need to find the right keywords in search.
 
However, I had a similar problem a couple of years ago now and it turned out to be related to USB and a HDMI monitor. Apparently HDMI has an interaction with USB and can exhibit these smyptoms.
 
My cure was to never allow the monitor to sleep by altering the settings in windows(10). Since doing that I haven't had a re-occurance.
 
This may not be your issue but worth a try if your have HDMI. Otherwise you'll have to trawl the archives for other solutions.

Hi Frederick,

An alternative is not to use the Silab drivers.

With the changes Apple made to MacOS extensions with Catalina (or was it Mojave?), I de-installed the Silab drivers and now let MacOS use it's inbuilt drivers. I've not had a problem and can connect seamlessly to any of my Icoms ('7610, '9700 and 'R8600). I have a 2017 tbMBP with Big Sur.

I had not used my Mac (2.6 GHz 6 Core i-7, with 16 Gb of RAM, running Big Sur 11.4), with WSJT, in several months. I installed 2.4, got the shared memory error message - which I corrected. Downloaded the latest drivers, from the Silicon Labs website. Followed all the directions, both the drivers and WSJT. I wanted to use my Mac with my new IC 705. Set up WSJT, for the '705. Worked first time. Please note that on the "Radio" Tab, in the WSJT software, the port for the radio now reads: /dev/cu.usbmodem142201 - which is much different, the familar "slab" devices, that I previously saw in the dropbox.

I’m having a terrible time trying to get WSJTx going. The problem so far is with getting the CP210X driver installed correctly in my iMac computer.  The driver installs OK like it supposed to do in extensions and from what I’ve learned from others is that it needs to be listed in a utility terminal “ls /dev” for the WSJTx to recognize it. It is not. I’ve tried to load the  latest version of the driver for Mac from the SLab website and a legacy version that others have recommended to no avail. I’ve had many eMail conversations with SLab and Apple on the phone and Icom emails.. Has anyone ever had a similar problem and offer any advice on a solution to this issue?

locked Re: WSJT Sensitivity V MSHV #why ?

Chris, HB9DFG
 

Hello all

With interest I have read through this thread and I thought to myself: why shouldn't I test this as well with JTMS, since I assumed that all other
programmes concerning the FT8 decoder should actually react in the same way. I once compared an older Version of MSHV but it lost a lot
of decodes compared with WSJT-X so I did not tried anew since then.

Well, I now have tested JTDX 2.2.156 and WSJT-X 2.4.0c19d62 a short time (for about 30-40min) on a quiet 2m-band. The computer is still a
WIN7-machine with 8GB RAM and an onboard Realtek audiocard set to the 16bit 48000kHz DVD system. BKTIMESYNC is in use here als well.

WSJT-Xs decoder was set to "deep" and "AP", JTDXs decoder was set to: threats=auto, decoder cycles=1, decoder sensitivity=use low thesholds

Besides the good decodes on both programs (with big differences in the dB values), I took out 13 wave files where either WSJT-X or JTDX did not
decode something.

Results:

- All in all I have picked one periode where WSJT-X had 3 decodes (include one a1), and FTDX got 2 of them. Both programmes were able to read the
   corresponding other wave files of this periode where JTDX couldn't read the "a priori" decode.
- An other periode got 2 decodes on JTDX and one on WSJT-X
- Also one periode got 1 decode on WSJT-X and no decode on JTDX
- The rest of the periods (10) got 1 decode on JTDX and no decode on WSJT-X
- WSJT-X could read JTDXs only no-decode
- JTDX could read 5 of WSJT-Xs 10 no-decodes

Maybe if time permits I will try to make an other test with my other W10-computer with the "soundcard" of my IC-9700.

Bill Somerville wrote earlier:
"...the only way to analyze the issue you report is for you to provide a .WAV file recorded by WSJT-X along with a list of the messages that you think
should have been decoded. Anything else is simply subjective speculation."


Fine Bill, did you already got such files to investigate and did you found out something interesting? Or would you like to get my wav-files to investigate?
If yes, where can I sent them as zipped files?

Fred,

I do not understand what you are asking, can you clarify please? Log4OM is not compatabile with Hamlib AFAIK so you can use Hamlib to control your rig, or you can use Log4OM to control you rig. To have both involved would need a different arrangement.

Further investigation. The error window appears as the latest decodes are being posted to the left window. I have removed McAfee LiveSafe from the computer and am only using the windows 10 built in security. I have excluded the entire folder where the logs files exist in the appdata/local/WSJT-X folder. I am only running Version 2.3.1 without JT-Alert and ACLog. Sometimes the error windows are 18 screens deep.

Hi Jeff, and Jeremy,

you can get more certainty of audio device naming and selection on macOS by creating an aggregate audio device, then assign your rig's audio devices to it. You can name the aggregate device as to desire, and select that in WSJT-X. This is most useful when you have multiple rigs with in-built USB audio codecs, but can of course be used with a single radio as well.

Hi all,

I'm running into some rig control errors and I'm wondering if anyone
has successfully used rigctld and remote (localhost or network)
operation?

My rig is an FT-897D. WSJT-x works perfectly fine when I directly
connect to the rig over the serial port, but I get errors (ERR_IO, -6)
when running rigctld-wsjtx with the same parameters and set the
program to use HamLib NET 2. I've tried the 4.2 release, the
integration release as well as the master branch of the code, all with
the same results.

Most of the time, wsjt-x comes up and reads the VFO and everything
looks good, but as soon as I try to test the CAT or PTT it errors out.

I realize this may be more of a hamlib issue, but figured I'd start here first.

Thanks, Matt.
