Re: Flex 5000a Front Panel Headphone Volume Very Low

I would try a doing a Setup->Factory Defaults It will save a copy of your current database as a backup to your desktop before it returns you back to the saved EEPROM calibrations and factory defaults. See what happens? You can always do a setup->import, to go back to your database if that does not s...

Re: V2.8.0.300 6M 6m Band Label Text

Well, my code skills are lacking when it comes to portability and readability.
I'm usually writing code on the fly, just trying to make it function, with no clue where I will end up. :)

Re: Issues after new installation

If a Windows PC Sound device was selected in either VAC1 or 2, and is now no longer present, you will get a crash because the device is not found. (need to work on that) Example: If you had a USB headset with a MIC plugged in originally but currently unplugged, then plug it back in, run PowerSDR, an...

Re: Flex 5000/CWSkimmer CAT Communication Inconsistancy

And just one more note for anyone using CW Skimmer (or any program using a VAC "IQ" stream): You cannot use the PowerSDR "PAN scrolling" feature I recently added, with CW Skimmer. This is because CW Skimmer uses the VAC IQ stream as opposed to a normal "Bandpass" VAC au...

Re: Firewire Adapter for USB-C

Yes, if you click on the left side FireWire link on my website, open it up and scroll down, you will see the photos of the entire chain of adapters. Its unfortunate that Apple stopped making the adapter. I know it will work with Thunderbolt 2 or 3(with a 3 to 2 cable) but I dont know about Thunderbo...

Re: Firewire Adapter for USB-C

FireWire only comes in PCI slot(obsolete), PCMCIA slot (obsolete laptop PCI), Expresscard slot (PCIe found on the outside of older laptops), Thunderbolt (which is PCIe over cable), "MINI PCIe" slot (found inside some laptops), and the original desktop PCIe Slot x1 through x16. If your USB-...

Re: BSOD again newer Computer

I am sorry for all the troubles your having. I am out of of things to try. go and download PowerSDR v2.7.2 and install (it will not touch the v2.8.0 install) https://www.flexradio.com/software/powersdr_v2-7-2_installer/ You may have better luck with the v2.7.2 (which is the last version before my co...

Re: BSOD New Computer

Any computer that comes with Win7 installed probably means its a very old PC with only a few CPU cores. Installing Win7 means finding an old copy of Win7 Ultimate (which didnt need a key) and doing a fresh install. At home I run a AMD Ryzen CPU with a motherboard running a AMD B350 chipset and Win11...

Re: BSOD New Computer

OK on the 2nd FireWire card, on the Win11 FireWire drivers and on the no anti-virus. Just to confirm, when you uninstalled PowerSDR, did you uninstall the Flexradio.exe program as well? If you went in Windows control panel->programs and features, it would be listed as "Flexradio 4.1.3.17357&quo...

Not sure what you mean by Turbo Mode? That usually a BIOS tweak to overclock the PC. I would not do that as that can lead to instability Just make sure the Control Panel "Power Options" is set to "High Performance" and that any BIOS feature that is used to save power (which just ...

4m band activation?

In PowerSDR ke9ns v2.8.0.300 I have activated possible transmit on the 4m band (70mhz) for the Flex-5000 In experimenting with the VU5K module (extending the Receive range of 2m and 70cm), it appeared that the Upper Receive limit on the Flex-5000 was possibly 75mhz? I assume this is really pushing i...

8m band 40mhz activated

In PowerSDR ke9ns v2.8.0.300 I have opened up the 8m band (40mhz) for transmit. This uses the 6m calibrations for the PA (since the Calibration routines do not have any 8m info) And there is no 8m LPF and hopefully the radios firmware should be using the 6m LPF for the 8m band. It appears to transmi...

Re: V2.8.0.300 6M 6m Band Label Text

Make sure to hit the Setup->General->Options->update BandText Although it doesnt mean much to us in the USA, I not only added the 8m band, I added 4m as well (if you have a Flex-5000). A couple of years ago Apache labs offered me a Radio to port over my code, but I dont have as much time as I once h...

Re: BSOD New Computer

Have you tried running just the normal FireWire drivers (not the legacy drivers)? When I moved to a AMD Ryzen CPU and motherboard, I run only the standard TI Firewire driver. You can try moving the FireWire card to any other PCIe slot (no matter how large the slot is). Some PCIe slots are actually s...

Re: BSOD New Computer

I am assuming your running a Flex-3000 or Flex-5000 and so have a 1394 FireWire card in your PC? DPC latency issues are usually seen as a freeze that occurs on your Pan Display, not a crash. For latency you can run the FlexRadio.exe program (for FireWire) and change the FireWire operating mode to Sa...
