Dear Erik,
Maybe good idea will be if you can send me your Msconfig > Services enabled or disabled?
On this way maybe I can easily disable unwanted services..

Thanks,

OK - I am not Windows 10 expert but I did reduce these porcesses with a Registry edit. Try the following:

1. Press WIN+R keys together to launch RUN dialog box. Now type regedit and press Enter. It’ll open Registry Editor.

2. Now go to following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control

3. In right-side pane, look for a DWORD SvcHostSplitThresholdInKB. Its value is set to 380000 by default.

Now you need to set its value equal or greater than the amount of RAM (in KB) installed in your computer. For example, if your computer has 8 GB of RAM, you’ll change the DWORD value to 8388608 in Decimal (do not use Hexadecimal).
8 GB = 8×1024 MB = 8x1024x1024 KB = 8388608 KB

So double-click on SvcHostSplitThresholdInKB DWORD and change its value to 8388608

If you have 16 Gb RAM the number to use is 16777216.

You will see a reduction in these processes after a reboot.

Now, unwanted services:
Create a .txt file called disable.txt in the Documents folder. Copy all of below and paste it in to the blank text file. Save it as disable.reg - so you are changing the extension from .txt to .reg here. You may be asked if you want to do this so say yes. Then create a restore point in Windows so that should there be something from this that you do not like, you can go back to how your system is now. Then right click on this file and click Merge. Reboot and a large number of unnecessary services will be stopped.

Nothing is ever easy, is it? Ok so Gordon what can be the problem..... it could be a permissions issue, probably UAC.

But let's try something simple first. Right click on your disable.reg file and select 'Open with' (this is further down the right click list). Then select registry editor. This will probably give you a warning but click Yes. Does that do it?

If not, it might be due to the way you created it. It should be a .txt file in documents (in other words it must be made with Notepad), renamed to disable.reg

Another possibility would be to turn of UAC, if it is on, and try it.

Let me know.

press ok

If you have problems still, please email me. We must take this issue off the Forum as there are many messages that nobody else has any interest in. I tried to email you (info on qrz.com) but the email bounces.

I have the solution but it means sending you a small app to run the reg file.

Erik.

Dear Erik,
I manually adjusted the parameters in Regedit so now it's ok ... :yahoo:

Wow, you are the man! Well done Gordon.

I see the processor speed is only 1.29GHz so something is wrong. It should be 3.39GHz. Check BIOS settings.

Passmark is useless. You will never influence the score. I just loaded it on my MB1 which has 16GB RAM - score is a little higher than yours but not much. Do not be concerned.

16GB will help in practical situations, example when caching a lot of data as with WSJTx and JTDX, plus with general computer work. RAM is currently cheap but will become expensive as supply dwindles due to low manufacturing levels, a consequence of Covid. If you can do so, move up to 16GB.

If you use JTDX, test it now with 2 decoding cycles and sensitivity on subpass, QSO RX sensitivity high, autosequence on 3. It should transmit with about a 1 second lag. If more, it will be due to having only 8GB RAM.

I must end this conversation to prevent complaints. If you need more advice, you are welcome to email.

73 de Erik.

Hi Erik,
Are there advantages to using an external computer top run the MB1? I'm tempted to build up a machine if there is......is it hard to connect to the MB1? My main concern is faster graphics.
Thanks,
Greg

Hello Greg

I have been running my MB1 with an external computer for a long time now. This was to facilitate JTDX with maximum decode cycles without delays to the start of TXing. I could not achieve that with the MB1 even with the upgraded CPU, RAM and SSD.

The external computer is Ryzen 5800X with a Radeon 5600XT graphics card which, as you may do, I built myself.

PROS: The difference in computer speed is enormous. Graphics, your main concern, is not noticeably visually different but of course it is not taking CPU resources as it does with the on-board chip in the MB1. There are no lags, visual glitches in ESDR2 or noise artefacts in the MB1 on SSB and CW. It is easy to connect the MB1 - just use an ethernet cable and set the computer ethernet port IP accordingly.

CONS: The eCoder is useful because the front panel functions of the MB1 are lost in this configuration. Therefore without it, you would go from SDR with knobs to SDR without knobs and have to use the software exclusively. Of course you can do that, it is no different to having the SunSDR DX for example but a bit of a waste for the MB1.

I daresay each individual's liking or otherwise to using the MB1 with an external computer will vary. If you will want to build up a machine regardless, I would say to try it. Personally, I would not now revert to using JTDX on the MB1 - what was high spec in 2016 cannot cope with the digital mode and software advances of the past 3 years if you want to be DXing and need the ultimate performance. For casual digital operating, the MB1 on its own is adequate. Operating CW split pile up working, for me anyway, took some getting used to without the convenience of the MB1 front panel controls at my disposal.

Erik.

Erik,
I remember you saying that you did that. So, let's just say hypothetically that I had another SDR. Would I be able to connect the MB1's computer to that other radio and use it by just connecting the MB1 computer to the other radio's ethernet port?

For example using a Flexradio and instead of having to purchase another computer I could use the MB1's computer with proper flexradio software to operate the Flexradio as long as I connected the computer to the other radio's ethernet port?

Mark,

I use my MB1 PC for my Flex 6600 all the time. Works great!
