Re: newbie trouble

That is the same issue I was having. Send it in to NW Digital and have them check it out.
They found the chip to be defective and simply replaced it.

Thanks for the replies guys. Operator error here.  I had the right com port (thumbtest worked remember) but I filled it in the wrong box on the setup.
Now the problem I have is that while I hear the "over-beeps" and connect/disconnect "boop" I don't get any audio when people are talking.
Or I get little random noises.  I could record them if that would help.
But, in any case, I am not getting voice out of my PC speakers. And when I click the PTT ("on the air" slider) it is seen to transmit for only about 1 second (as viewed from the receiving end).

The other thing I noticed is that sometimes I have to unplug and re-plug the device to get it to talk to the program (after a setup change for example).

I am wondering if the inability to make and decode audio might mean I have a bad device?

Full disclosure: I also run a Freestar homebrew repeater here on the same network, so there may be some port conflict issues ... although ... I have run the OpenSpot device here without problems on all three of its modes.  I have an internal reflector (does not go through the firewall) and I figured if I connect to that then no port conflicts should happen.
