No audio from Windows DVSwitch dashboard

Something appears to be causing log lines to be lost (at least as seen in Thunderbird here), so here's the message again this time with the log extract attached.

Steve,

Thanks for that suggestion. Two extracts below - the first seems to
have a backwards time step, but it's from a couple of months back.

The second shows yesterday's tests (apparently using a server started an
March-19) and apparently sending data (audio packets, I guess)
correctly. Judging by the times in the log it seems that audio was
being sent, and that my Web browser wasn't receiving or processing it
until I ran the Python client once.

Unfortunately I didn't keep a careful note of the times! Oh, well!

First log was missing? It /was/ in the outgoing e-mail, though.

Check the webproxy log in /var/log/dvswitch.

David,
Here are a couple of things to check:
In /opt/Analog_Bridge/Analog_Bridge.ini

[GENERAL]
pcmPort = 2222                          ; UDP port to send to the WebProxy

In /lib/systemd/system/webproxy.service

[Service]
ExecStart=/usr/bin/node /opt/Web_Proxy/proxy.js 8080 2222

Thanks, Steve.  Both checked and correct.  I tried using an iPad in case something in Windows was blocking the audio, but no joy there either. No restart attempted.

So I thought I would confirm that the Python client still worked - and it did - and then trying the RX Monitor again it started working.  Not sure I can explain that - somehow a path was opened.  I then tried the iPad and it was producing audio as well, although the button was briefly red, and the received audio was several seconds behind that from a hotpot.

At least I may have a work-round.

I'm a beginner with DVswitch, but I have it installed on a Raspberry Pi (on top of a working OS, I didn't use the .img), and it's working correctly both from a phone and from the Python program on a Windows PC.

However, when I press the RX Monitor button on the dashboard on this same Windows PC, the button turns green, but no audio appears.  Using the same Firefox audio from the BBC Radio service is fine.  I am using Firefox, but no audio with Chrome or MS Edge either.

I've attached the Analog Bridge status in case that helps.  I'm stuck on knowing how to chase this further.

Thanks,
David
