After two hours of experiment... resolved.
The culprit was a setting in MixW.
Unchecked the "PTT via CAT Command" and activated the VOX function on the Kenwood TS-480 resolved.
It's very strange because the only purpose of this setting is to key the Radio.

Thank you for your help.

Hi Mitch and thank you for your answer.
Before starting this post i did all the test on the "sound chain" (MixW -> Windows Audio -> speaker out and Mic/Aux IN at the RRig Control unit).
Hardware (cables) and software.

With an headphone and some converters i checked the entire audio chain so i'm 99,99 % sure that the PSK signal generated by MixW arrives at the Mic/Aux IN at the RRig Control unit.

I also did some tests with differents Mike Gain value (TS-480) and sound volume exit (Windows and MixW).
At a first sight i had your same idea (something broken in the audio chain).
To be sure i've changed the MiniJack stereo cable with a mono one but without luck and several RJ-45 plugs.

Tomorrow i'll try to change the Audio Codec using a better one (Codec N. 1 o 2).

For now HNY.

First of all HNY

I operate with RRig since 2010. So i have some experience with this fantastic Black-Box.
I have a setup based on RRC-1258 MKII v5 on both side (the radio is TS-480). Latest FW 2.91 on board.
All is working fine about SSB, CW and RTTY. No problem to control my TS-480 with several SW (DXLab, MixW, ecc)

Now I'm trying to use MixW to make PSK qsos.

I'm using the internal sound card of my Intel i5 Windows 10 Pro LapTop  connected with the 2 connectors (mic, speakers) of the RRC via 2 audio cables, the audio is OK. I built a cable that connect the Aux/Mic port (RJ-45 pin 3 and 4 as for RRig Manual) to a minijack stereo from speakers output on the PC.
Mix W controls the PTT via CAT.

The problem is that no audio arrives to the other side (RRig Radio Side). in USB mode (PSK31) there is no power out from TS-480. Mix W keys the radio so i'm sure it is in TX.

I've checked and re-checked the cable and the configurations and all is OK. If i connect the TS-480 handy mike to my cable (with some adapters) my voice arrives at the radio without problem with a good modulation (and power out).
It would seem that there is a band pass filter that prevents audio to go from RRig Control to RRig Radio side.

So before changing my setup i'm wondering if is there a solution for this problem.
Maybe the problem is due to poor audio quality settings?

I would like to know which parameters to set in order to operate with PSK.

Just for your information my parameters are:
Audio Codec: 0 - Alaw 8 Khz (i have bandwith problems)
Codec inp HPF Hz: 163
RTP tx mode: Continuous


Thank you in advance.

Hi and Merry Christmas to all.
I own a couple of Remoterigs MKII (V. 4, HW 5) with Software 2.80 that i use with a Kenwood TS-480. This setup is working flawlessly.

As i'd like to update my RRigs to the latest 2.91 version I'm wondering if i have to make every single update in sequence (2.81 -> 2.83 -> 2.83 ... 2.91) or jump directly from 2.80 to 2.91

Another question: Is it worth updating?

Many thanks.

73, IZ4MJP

Thanks Jan.
I supposed that.
I'll proceede with an update.

Just the last info: do you suggest to jump installing directly v. 2.72 or step by step (ex 2.65 restart, then 2.66 restart and so on)?

Might seems a trivial question but for me is not.

I use 2 sets of RemoteRig to control a TS-2000 and a TS-480 SAT.

After months of setup i've found the right balance and stability (i pilot an Expert 1K, a Dinamic antenna, a Rotor, CAT, ecc).

The 4 units use software 2.62.

I see on the RemoteRig website that software reached version 2.72.

None of the new features are of my interest (at first sight) and so i'm wondering if worth to update from 2.62 to 2.72 (taking the risks to experience some problems) or is better remain on 2.62.
What i do not undestand is if new FW/SW better improves other function of the R.R. System (not mentioned in the FW release).

Many thanks.

Hi Dennis,
good suggestion. I'll give a try as soon as possible.

Many tnx.

Franco, I had the same problem.  The minimum signal from the Ctrl RR was too high a level for the soundboard I was using, and I was using the Line Input on the soundboard.  I went in and changed the "Radio Settings-Codec Out Gain" from the default 255 to
a value of 230.  Now the sound board isn't overdriven by RTTY signals.  I also put my headphones on the output of the soundboard, so I still have plenty of audio for CW and SSB.

Hello Mitch.
Tnx for your comment.
As a Mac addicted (i work for Apple since 1982) i use two MacBook AIR with BootCamp (with Windows 7 native S.O., no emulator).
MacBook AIR has not an Audio IN (only headphone out) so i use a USB Audio interface that grant me a Mike Audio IN.

I've tried some products and the LinQ model seems works better than others.

I use Win 7 Pro and i've adjusted the Line IN level from the Audio Control Panel on Windows 7 (there is a slidebar and you can set from 0 to 99).

I'd like to test the Griifin iMic Interface (that has a Line level IN port) but it's rather expensive for my "sporadic" use of RTTY.

Maybe you are right: the problem could reside in the Windows side.

I misread your note and thought you were using the speaker output on the TS-480 panel, sorry.
This usually works just fine, and should not require a volume adjustment.

Are you using the line-in or microphone input on the computer? It looks to me more that the problem is on the
computer side if you are having this problem. Line-in is far better than mic. Which control have you adjusted to 1?

I'm experiencing audio volume problem when using the RTTY audio signal.
I'm using a TS-480 SAT and MMTTY.
I get the audio from the SP jack on the front side on the RRC Ctr and i keep the audio level at the minimum level.
I've also set at "1" the Audio level in the Windows 7 audio panel.

With this setup i often receive "garbages" on my screen probably due for the saturated signal.
So i'm wondering if there is a way to have a like "Line Signal" from TTL connector (not depending from  the volume knob).

Vy tnx Mike.

Fine Business.

This is another evidence of the high engineering work done on this product.

Hi

if the RTP stream which includes the mic-audio is missing the PTT is released after a few seconds. In CW, key down can never be more than 2 sec. So it should not be any risk of hangup with PTT on

General discussion forum / What happens if ADSL fails?
« on: 2013-02-12, 20:42:11 »
I mainly use my TS-480 via Remote RIG when i'm abroad for works.

Yesterday there was a blackout at my home (fortunately the RemoteRIG was not in use because i was at work).

What could happen if the ADSL connection fails (go down) during a QSO when i'm on TX?

I'm wondering if the Remote RIG MK 1258 MKII (Radio Side) has an "emergency procedure" in the firmware that switch off TX if this event happens.

Hello Nicola.

Today i did the test.
No problem at all with version Micro PC Client and SW 1.6.2 on Win XP SP3 and TS-480.
I worked two station on different bands. Frequency has been steady all the time.

On the Radio Side a have a RRig 1258 MKII with FW 2.62.

I hope you can solve the problem.

Hello Nicola.
I have your same setup and i use it with 2 radios (TS-2000 and TS-480).

With a TS-2000 i have no problem with 1.6.2 (using ARCP-2000 + RRC Client).

Tomorrow (or in the week end) ill' try with the TS-480 and ARCP-480 and i let you know.

My PC is a Dual Core Duo with Win XP SP3.

Any one try new firmware?
I use: OS XP SP3, TS 480
I can  change all the set (slide control, Pre, Att, ecc) at exception of the frequency! It seems to change after 1 sec came back at preview.
I tried on 2 different computer(OS XP SP3), same problem
Any suggestion?
My best regard IZ7ANL
