locked JTAlert not logging to DXKeeper

Ed Ireland
 

I have not been able to get JTAlert to log to DXKeeper after moving to a new computer.  There are no error messages but QSO's are not logged.  Any suggestions are appreciated.

GridTracker may be something to look at. It will run on Linux or windows. It doesn't have to be on the same computer as wsjtx.

OM,

If you can't access  the JTAlert Settings due to missing menus, the fix is simple, start JTAlert using the "Alt Layout" shortcut with the green musical note icon.

Try using the alternate layout - Start with the Green musical note instead of the red musical note.

I will attempt to recreate the workaround described by pointing the UDP output from WSJT-X (running on the rpi) to my desktop and also running a WSJT-X instance locally on my desktop to trick JTAlert into starting. I'll report back. 
Thanks for the help, everyone.

That's not the problem. Of course JTAlert will run on a different computer over a network using VNC etc. I use Anydesk to run WSJT-X + JTAlert from work, from my smartphone, etc. The problem is JTAlert will not run on the Raspberry Pi because it's only a Windows program for now.

That said, I'm not sure if having JT-Alert running on a local computer running VNC would work, unless the computer were on the same network as the Pi.

Sorry for the lack of details. Frozen meant that I could not access the program through the menus and that I could not close the program with the X in the upper right corner.
As was suggested the solution was to use the ALT menu version. Not sure why it cropped up now. I am running a different motherboard and CPU maybe the real problem.
Thanks to all who responded and especially to the creator and maintainer of this wonderful program, Laurie VK3AMA.

Richard Williams <mouser@...>
 

I could only find one reference in this forum to running JTAlert on a different computer than WSJT-X. The response was that it would not be supported in v2 but would be in v3, and that v3 was "months away" from release. It has been 5 months, any updates on a release timeframe for v3? 

I would very much like to use JTAlert, but due to constraints on my setup I can't sit where my radio is. The rig and WSJT-X are running off a raspberry pi which I VNC into from where I sit. I'm really looking forward to JTAlert v3. 

Thanks for all your hard work,

Another option for a single sound device PC is to set JTAlert to use that device name (and disable all JTAlert sounds) and set WSJT-X to use the "Default" input & output devices. JTAlert will see the WSJT-X output device as different from its device and will not present the startup warning about both JTAlert & WSJT-X are using the same device even though they are, the names are different and that is all JTAlert checks, it is a simple string comparison.

As of JTAlert 2.15.4, the use of the Default Windows device is no longer supported, a named sound device is required. See the release notes (reproduced below).

If you run Windows, WSJT-X & JTAlert on a single sound device PC you run a very high risk of playing Windows sounds or JTAlert sounds on-air. Listen to 20 or 40m and it wont be long before you hear these sounds being played, it is very common.

I suggest installing a cheap usb sound dongle (
usually $5 or less), they are very common and readily available. If that is not an option, install one of the free virtual audio devices and set JTAlert to use that audio device, while it wont play alerts, it will prevent JTAlert sound device warnings. I have used the free VB-Audio cable software. https://www.vb-audio.com/Cable/

de Laurie VK3AMA

2.15.4 Release Notes (partial)

  Changes:

    - The Windows Default Sound Device is NO longer supported as one of the
       selected audio devices. A specific named device must be set.
       JTAlert will now present a dialog to change the device whenever it
       encounters (at startup) the last used named device is no longer found
       or was never set (ie was using the Windows default).
       Reason for change:
       In the past JTAlert would default to using the Windows default if the
       previously used device is no longer found or was never set. This worked,
       but in some cases had the undesirable affect that sounds were getting
       played on-air if the users sound devices had been reassigned (usually
       after a Windows update) such that the Windows default was now the WSJT-X
       rig audio device. By eliminating the use of the Windows Default Device,
       provided the user doesn't set the JTAlert audio device matching the Rig
       audio device JTAlert sounds will never be played on-air.

Tom,

have you tried disabling the JTAlert sound yourself using the titlebar control (or, I assume, menu option on the alt layout).
