As previously said, the latest version of JT-Alert will work fine, HOWEVER, you need to properly select the version used in the JT-Alert Logging settings.

I use HRD5.24 and have been using JTAlert for 2 or 3 years so the newest version and the last dozen or so will work with HRD5.

Mike - 

I'm using AnyDesk but the problem is local - remoting adds a latency to everything, but the 'buffering' issue I'm posting about doesn't change.

I see that Bill's performance was restored by unchecking HotKeys, mine hasn't and I'll look at Laurie's suggestions tomorrow.

Mike,

Try disabling the HotKeys in JTAlert. "Miscellaneous -> Hot Keys" section of the Settings window.
With multiple instances and a single shared JTAlert config to ensure the setting change is retained do the following..
  • Shutdown all JTAlert instances
  • Start a single instance
  • Disable HotKeys in the Settings window.
  • Start your other JTAlert instances.

Low-level HotKey code in JTAlert are handled by a third-party library. That library may be conflicting with your Flex software.

Laurie - 

Was excited to try this, until I remoted in and found HotKeys off (sadface). What does deactiving them do? Is the HotKey library still trapping but not firing an event? Is it possible to make a build without the HotKeys lib?

Thanks,

Mike Alexander

I'm trying to help an elderly friend of mine get his HRD logbook working with WSJT-X.  

He uses HRD version 5.24.0.38.   Which version of JTAlert will be compatible?  He uses one computer with Win7 Home Premium and another with Win7 Pro.

Hope someone can help.
Thanks

Hello Laurie-

I would be glad to test a new add-on. However, just for clarification
this slow down does not affect the Flex software.
It's just a slight annoyance if keyboarding when multiple JTA
instances are running.
So, please don't worry about it on my account.

Tnx Bill,

Good to hear.

As to the reason the hotkeys are causing a problem, I don't know at this time. I suspect something coded incorrectly within the 3rd party HotKey library used by JTAlert.

I could try and replace the library with an alternative, but that will require you to be a test guinea pig. I have been unable to reproduce the latency defect in testing so will require an affected user to perform the tests. Let me know if you want to go down that path.

OM,

Your WSJTX image shows that 9A2KS was not colored by JTAlert indicating that the callsigns did not generate any alerts. If the callsign did not display in the main JTAlert window it would be due to you having an Alert Filter active that stopped the display of the Callsign.

If you have a QSL Filter engaged that would stop 9A2KS from displaying as the callsign is not a known LoTW or eQSL member.

What Alert Filters do you have active?

Mike,

If HotKeys are disabled in JTAlert, the library code is never executed. The JTAlert HotKey assignment code is never run in this situation. You can confirm this by examining the "View" menu, there will be no shortcut keys listed if the HotKeys are disabled.
   

Bill W2PKY has reported that disabling the HotKeys fixed his latency issue.

I just made my very first FT8 mode QSO today with a F4CVO in on 10.136 and am running WSJT-X v2.2.2 through HRD(Ham Radio Deluxe) v.6.7.301 RELEASE 6.7.301 with HRD Logbook of the same version as HRD for rig control of my Yaesu FT-991A via the USB cable and it's built-in soundcard. I'm also running JT Alert WSJT-X-JTAlertX v2.16.13, all on a Dell Inspiron Model N7010 Laptop PC using the Windows 10 v10.0.19041 Build 19041 x-64 based operating system and got the pop-up error message on the screenshot below when I first started WSJT-X again earlier. I have to start WSJT-X before T Alert, right? I hadn't started JT Alert yet when the error message popped up. Does anyone know what I need to do to resolve this? Also, I just went and checked LoTW and eQSL and my log of the QSO with F4CVO did not upload to either of them, but it did upload to HRD Logbook with no problem. I set up the JT Alert to auto-upload my QSOs to HRD Logbook, LoTW, eQSL, QRZ, HamQTH, and ClubLog, but the only one it uploaded to was HRD Logbook! Why? I entered and saved all the usernames and passwords and browsed to the path to the TQSL v2.5.3 execution file. It's been uploading QSOs just fine from HRD Logbook when I right click an entry and then left click to tell it to upload to either LoTW, eQSL, or ClubLog.  I spent the entire day 2 days ago setting up WSJT-X v2.2.2 and JT Alert WSJT-X-JTAlertX v2.16.13 step-by-step, and have had 3 problems including this one. One was a seting in WSJT-X I needed to change. It seems like just when I get one issue resolved another one starts happening! Below is the text that's in my ADI log file I opened in Notepad that's in the C:\Users\owner\AppData\Local\WSJT-X folder: Mmmm, I wonder if it could be caused by a incorrect setting in WSJT-X instead. I suspect JT Alert since it controls the auto log uploads, but I am new at this so I really don't know. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. I'm brand spanking new on this software and mode. At least I'm making QSOs with it now, but getting the QSOs to auto upload is important to me. I'm not much of a paper chaser myself, but I do like to help those that are.
