Could you please explain what you mean (to a non-Duo owner)? What I see in the screenshot in the TX DSP panel is tones at nearly 100% amplitude and ALC at 100%+ so I would expect full power out. What was set at 50% in Windows and how would that affect the situation within SDRC when full level audio tones are reaching the TX audio input? Any chance of a screenshot of the relevant (incorrect) setting in Windows? Or is it something in the Duo software setup external to SDRC?
Should have explained the reason I am asking is that I continue to see very low level power out on my HL2 on SSB even if I whistle into the mic with ALC showing 100% I only see about 1.5W when I expect to see a full 5W. I wondered if it's related somehow?

The DUO uses a VAC (virtual audio cable) to send the transmit IQ and the default setting after installation has the Level at 50%, similar to my attachment.
Start a new thread for the HL2, we'll find the problem.
OK thanks Simon. I will make sure that I am actually not seeing a self-made problem before I post a new thread.
The bit I could not figure from Robert's screenshot was that in the TX DSP panel, it clearly shows ALC at 100% plus, and yet only 1W TX power. If ALC it "flatlining", does that not mean that max audio drive (via IQ) is begin applied inside SDRC? With Drive max, and ALC 100%, how can there still be low power? Or is the actual drive to the TX (IQ signal?) applied after where the ALC indicator is driven from?
I think I have a fundamental misunderstanding of what the TX DSP meters are actually showing and how the TX audio is processed inside SDRC.
Out of interest, did you happen to see this post by Nicolas F4INE a while back. I think it was when you had Covid so you might have missed it but would be interested in your comments, maybe best made on that thread?
