Rick,
Set your Windows sound output to your speakers using Windows Sound Settings.
Then, in WSJTX, set your Audio Soundcard Input and Output to the USB Audio Codecs .
That's all you need to do.

Do you only have one soundcard in your laptop? If so, PC sounds (bleeps, boops and any audio that comes out of your speakers) is also going out your transmitter (yikes!). Also some laptops have odd builtin soundcards.

My suggestion is to purchase a cheap USB sound dongle. They are less than $10. Set up WSJT to use that sound interface and then set the PC so that the builtin soundcard is the default.

Good Morning from the foothills in Western NC,

Recently I purchased a IC-7300 HF rig. After setting it up as well as the WSJT-X software I have noticed that my laptop is doing funny things.  When I start up my laptop and everything boots up, I sometimes I might start up either say Netflix or Amazon music and more the window so it moves over to my monitor (via HDMI Cable). So when those software are running on my monitor and click on the speaker icon in the bottom right hand Taskbar on my laptop it will show that the speaker is set for the monitor speaker. Great. So then I fire up my logging software (N3FJP) then click on the WSJT-X software then JT Alert.  They fire up and I notice a couple of things happening.

1.     My music gets muted a bit,
2.     The WSJT people calling CQ are real slow to respond. (Like they are not receiving the signal from the IC7300
3.     The JT Alert s cope is not right
4.     When I start to call CQ and ic-7300 starts to transmit I get the transmissions coming thru the laptop speakers
5.     When I click back on the speaker icon on the task bar it now shows the Codec as choice of speakers

So my question what have I done wrong in my settings? Any ideas or suggestions?

Rich,

the "Listen to device" option is only for microphone devices, the WSJT-X Tx uses a speaker device so it is not relevant.

I was hoping that was the ticket...it sounded promising. Unfortunately, it didn't change the behavior I'm observing. I went into the "Sound" Control Panel (the dialog with the Playback, Recording, Sounds and Communications tabs), and I set the regular speakers as the Default Device (i.e. right-click -> Set as Default Device). I double checked that WSJT-X's audio setting were configured for the IC-7300's "USB Audio Codec". The output from WSJT-X still comes from whatever device is selected via the Windows task bar speaker icon.

I had a similar issue helping a fellow HAM configure WSJT-X with IC-7300.

The issue was resolved by opening the Volume Mixer and muting WSJT-X output from reaching the speakers.

Right-click the speaker icon and select "Volume Control":

You can mute system sounds, but I would not recommend trying to run Netflix or any other music or movie app on the same computer that you're using for WSJT-X and related software. It's best to use another computer/device for that.

I used to have a perfectly working WSJT-X installation used for FT8.  I used in in conjunction with JTAlert and The DXlab suite.

I had a hard drive crash and was able to recover the AppData folder.  I can see the adi log file with all my contacts in it.
I also recovered the DXLab suite.
I was unable to recover the JTAlert directory and had to reinstall the app.

The problem is that I seem to have lost all my Worked Before data.  All QSOs seem to come up as new.
Is there any way to recover this data?

Sound card dongles can be had for less that $10. Much better to have a separate sound interface for WSJT-X to keep the computer bleeps off the air.

Hi Matt.

The IC-706MKIIG does not, if I recall correctly, have a built in sound card.  So I'm deducing that you have an external sound card.  It also sounds like you might be using that external card for both radios.

If that is the case, here's what you should do. If it is not, ignore the rest of this note.
1.  Unpug the external sound device from the PC (for your sanity for a while).
2.  Plug in the IC-7300 via the USB port on the radio to a USB port on the PC.  You need an A to B USB cable.
3.  Now look at your device manager and see what com port has been assigned to the IC-7300 USB Port.  This presumes that you downloaded the USB Drivers from Icom.  If not, do that first and install them.
4.  Set up WSJT-X for the IC-7300. I use these parameters:

Baud=115200, 
Word=8,
Stop Bit=1
Parity=None
DRT & RDS both off
Set the Audio in WSJT-X for the Audio Codex.  Since you unplugged the other sound card, it should be the only one available.
5.  Ensure that the default autio device is NOT the USB Codex from Icom.
6.  Test WSJT-X with this setup.

Now connect your  external sound card and setup a second instance of WSJT-X using the --rig-name=whatever (ie: --rig-name=IC706).
Follow the same steps but set the baud rate to 19.2.

73.

That suggests that perhaps the "Listen to this device" checkbox is checked for the USB Audio Codec input (Sound Control Panel, Recording devices, select the input you are using, click on Properties, Listen tab). If it is checked, try unchecking it. That should stop it from being heard via the default playback device.

Thanks for that tip, Phil. That would make it much clearer as to which device is which, especially since I have the computer's on-board audio card, a USB audio card connected to my 706MkIIG and the 7300's USB audio device!

Hi Kari.

Retired eh, lucky you!.

As you've probably seen, It's largely sorted now, thanks to Bill's and
your comments together.  Joining the dots etc.

Re Python on Windows.

If needed, it's an easy install (as you probably know) plus (to make
things easy for end users) you can crunch down a Python script to a sort
of "compiled executable" that runs well, just that you can't see/edit
the code.  (From what I gather, it runs as byte code in a VM of sorts.) 
Only experimented with that on Linux so far.

Have to say though, playing with Python on Linux, is a far more pleasant
experience (Using Geany as a sort of IDE) than doing the same on
Windows!  But for ease of getting started, Windows is probably the
better choice, as you do get a (crude but it works) IDE of sorts with
it.  (The Windows version of Geany, doesn't have the
oh-so-conveniant-and-useful embedded terminal session.)
