Re: No audio in/out with my FT-817, Pi4, and DRAWS

Hmm, I installed and ran DRAWS Manager from source, and set my ALSA settings using its presets. According to, the levels are tweaked a bit now but I’m still seeing the same barren field in my waterfall:

 ===== ALSA Controls for Radio Transmit =====
LO Driver Gain  L:[-6.00dB]     R:[-6.00dB]
PCM             L:[-16.50dB]    R:[-20.00dB]
DAC Playback PT L:[P3]  R:[P3]
LO Playback CM  [Full Chip]
 ===== ALSA Controls for Radio Receive =====
ADC Level       L:[-2.00dB]     R:[-2.00dB]
IN1             L:[Off]         R:[Off]
IN2             L:[10 kOhm]     R:[10 kOhm]
CM              L:[10 kOhm]     R:[10 kOhm]

I’m operating remotely at the moment, I’ll double-check everything when I get home. It’s got to be something hardware at this point but I’m out of ideas.
