Another RXTX 6.3 Completed
- Good afternoon all,
Finished putting together an RXTX v6.3 this afternoon. All went well
until I went to hook it up to the computer. First, it seems that the
latest M-Audio Delta 44 drivers take away the settings needed to make
Rocky work. Or, maybe better said, I couldn't find a set of Delta 44
settings that matched my Delta 44 driver.
So I got the old driver installed and set the settings as many of the
online manual suggest. Bingo! Working well, but clearly, I'm getting
no image rejection. Rocky agreed with my conclusion, as the I/Q
auto-balance refused to work at all.
One of the nice things of the Delta 44 sound card is that effectively,
you have two inputs and two outputs. So I hooked the v6.3 into the
other input and immediately Rocky's I/Q auto-balance began working.
The culprit? A bad solder joint in my Delta 44 interface box.
Basically the right channel wasn't getting into the computer at all,
hence no image rejection.
So this is another thing to check - if you have no image rejection, the
problem may not be with the Softrock, but with the computer side of things!
thanks much and 73,
