Right-click your Realtek speakers and make them the Default Communications Device too.

There should be no green icons on your rig audio.

Then remember every time you plug in a USB device (like your rig) it will become the default for both.

I am having the same problem here. I tried Chrome and Edge. Both say virus detected. No way around it.

I also have started having blocked download problem lately.  After investigation I find that Comcast/Xfinity has recently added xFi Advanced Security to our service.  Thus your router is now blocking things.  You need to turn off this xFi Advanced Security long enough to make the download.  You can access it thru your Account, but it wasn't easy to find.  Here's the path to take you where you can disable/enable.    https://internet.xfinity.com/more/my-services/my-services-disabling  Good luck.

Read carefully please....you NEVER want to set your rig to any "default" device in Windows.  Yes...it will work....until you run some program that wants to use the Default Communications Device to talk at which point that program will use your rig.
There's no need at all to set your rig as the default comm device...it does nothing for your ham operations but risks messing up your ham operations.

Making your rig the default will cause programs to use it instead of your speakers for output.     You may think you made sure all programs are not using the default, but sure as Murphy has a law, something that can go wrong, will.

Hummm, it was already checked and set for a threshold  of 1.5.  I changed the colors and left it turned on   I also turned off the parameter directly below it: Highlight Signal dB Level.

Neil and Mike are correct - Windows will route audio, especially OS event sounds and audio without a secure binding to the default audio device. A stable Windows ecosystem should, aside from updates, keep audio bindings (device assignments) stable indefinitely and having to make a radio interface the default device is an indicator of an issue, such as an unstable driver.

Since installing this version, all decodes are coming up as "Worked B4". I tried clearing the WB4 cache, which works, but as the calls get decoded they revert back to Worked B4.

I believe it means that the callsign is online right now and ready for text message.  What's your call and we can test? 73, Herb

Does it mean that the user of that callsign will receive a pop-up text message sent by me or other JTAlert users? (specifically, "Settings|WIndow|Text Messages| Receive messages from other JT Alert users" is checked?).

Or does it just mean that the user of that callsign is simply running the JT Alert program at present?
