locked HOW do i "seed" JTAlert adi database from existing WSJT-X ?

bob
 

how can i get JTAlert to use an existing WSJT-X .adi to "seed"  its own adiff file for logging? 

want to read in all contacts already made with WSJT-x into the JTAlert adiff file.

primary reason, update of JTAlert deleted my adiff logfile...   that is covered in another post elsewhere.

If you're seeing JTAlert instead of JTAlertV2.manager, the sound is
probably an error sound (Windows Error).  Acts like you do not have
JTAlert configured correctly for the proper sound card.  Go to Settings
-> Manage Settings -> Sound Card.  Select any sound card *except* your
Realtek [Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio)] then go back and
select Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio).  Set the Volume in
"Test Sound Card" at around 50% and click "Test Play".

Thanks Laurie.  I deleted the "decodes" files per your instructions, and the Fatal Error went away.  Just to clarify, my Decodes Window was populating just fine.  I got the Error when clicking on a CQ station to initiate a QSO.  I'll give the Beta a try.  The Audio Alerts are still getting their first half clipped off...even when testing the Alerts.  73 Herb WB8ASI

Laurie,
I've been adding a bit to my powershell email script and tried to add the Lotw variables.
But I'm not seeing any information in either JTAlert_Lotw or JTAlert_LotwDate they are always 0 length.

Hopefully this is a JTAlert bug :-)

Why the hesitation in upgrading? The upgrade had the fix for the problem you were experiencing. You statement has me somewhat confused.

That is a system generate sound initiated by JTAlert itself and sent to your Windows default device. All Alert sounds are generated by the JTAlertV2.Manager process which is not appearing in Mixer and that is the problem.

Sorry Mike, that is not going to happen.

I went down that path in the past when I implemented a form of sound stay-alive, periodically playing a zero-volume wav file in order to stop sound-devices going to sleep. The end result was numerous complaints of VOX triggered Rigs going to TX every few seconds because the user sound-devices got re-ordered by Windows and the JTAlert sound device was now the Windows default and the users had WSJT-X set to use the default device rather than a named device.

The Keep-Alive was initially introduced because of my Nvidia HDMI device going into a power-save mode after 5 secs of inactivity. This caused the first part of a new sound to be lost as the device came out of sleep. The Nvidia driver doesn't provide any user access to this power-saving mechanism so it can't be turned off or length adjusted except through direct Registry changes which seem to get reset after a few days. Ultimately I solved my Nvidia problem by using the Microsoft High-Definition audio driver, replacing the Nvidia driver.

John,

OK, the non-initialized Audio module is not the problem.

Lets focus on one PC only now that I know it is not a multiple instance issue.

Choose one of your PCs, Run JTAlert as normal. All the following tests can be performed from the Sound menu, there is no need to open the Settings window.
  • Wait for 30 seconds after JTAlert startup then check the list of sound devices under the "Sound -> Select Output Device" menu, they should all be listed normally without any 32 character truncation of the device name.

  • Use the "Test Sound Output" menu 3 times, if there is no sound played, temporarily choose a different device (it doesn't need to produce sound) and repeat the "Test Sound Output" 3 times. Now switch back to the correct device and again perform the test 3 times. Does the sound now play?

  • If there is still no sound played after going through the test play -> switch device -> test play -> switch device back to original -> test play sequence use the "Help" (or "? ") -> "Contact Support" menu, on the main JTAlert window, to send me your JTAlert files for analysis.

First, yes I've upgraded. WSJT-X 2.2.1 and JTAlert 2.16.6 

Second NO display filters are set.

Computer i7-4770 desktop, 8gb ram

Calls that are decoded by WSJT-x are not displayed. Attached screen grab shows 7 decodes but only 4 displayed.

Also, at least once, while I was chasing North Dakota on 6 meters, the audio alert "New State" sounded but the call of the ND station (the only new one in that decode cycle) was NOT displayed in JTAlert.

OM,

Your image shows that JTAlert 2.16.6 lost the decodes received in the first decode pass of the Rx period. That was a defect within JTAlert that was corrected with the 2.16.7 rele3ase. From the release notes...
  Fixes:

    - WSJT-X 2.2.x FT8: Random loss of some early first-pass FT8 decodes received
       at the 11 second point of the Rx period.

I thought it would say JTAlertV2.manager
It should.

It will happen after I make a QSO and log it (in Log4OM.V!)

That would explain why it didn't show on mine until I switched audio devices and played a test sound.

I guess that's because the mixer doesn't know the app is running until it plays a sound.
Maybe Laurie could add a startup null play to enable the mixer entry.

John,

the JTAlert mixer slider in the Windows Volume Mixerwill only show while
sound is being played. Does it appear when you use the JTAlert sound
test facility, and what level is it at?

I assume it does work through the other Speakers device?

JTAlert Manager wasn't showing up on my mixer for my headset until I switched the sound device to another device and back again.
Mine is not RealTec.
