11727RE: Is Stuck-Decode fixed yet?
- Sep 27, 2013
I often had the "stuck decode" syndrome with earlier betas, but not any longer with V1.2 r3563.

once WSJT-X has successfully decoded the first period.
I am not sure but I suspect the issue is related to a sound card
(audio) initialization as I can't remember seeing activity in the
waterfall (wide graph) when WSJT-X r3563 is "stuck in decode."
Unfortunately, I have developed the habit of starting JTAlert-x
which in turn launches WSJT-X when I start the computer but do
not generally look at it for some time. Since this is always a
"one off" condition - restarting WSJT-X clears the problem - it
is difficult to spot a trend.
