locked Audio Out when attaching headsets to computer #AudioIssues


Kenneth Williams
 

WSJT-X Version 2.4.0
Machine: Dell Optiplex 780 runningWindows 7-64bit
Rig: Kenwood TS0570S
Audio connection: Integrated audio from computer to accessory port on rig

When I attach a USB headset to my computer while WSJT-X is running, the audio out is changed to be sent to my headset instead of from the integrated audio device.
If I look at the audio setting of WSJT-X (Settings... -> Audio -> Output:), there appears to be no change in the output setting and the setting shows the output going through integrated audio device.
If I then 'change' the output from the integrated output to the integrated output (i.e. no change except going through a no-op motion), the audio reverts to the integrated audio and all is well.
There appears to be no affect on the audio input.

This is not urgent for me since I now know what to do and I am reluctant to update at this time since I have seen other bugs come through that might be more troublesome.

You've not provided important technical information such as your operating system but this is normal and expected behaviour for windows.
