Been wearing out my refresh button on this thread . . . my only connection to the "action".  The Live feed app has been on all morning with no sound. Then, with your post the sound suddenly appeared. No idea what happened. Sound almost inaudible even though the app's volume bar is WFO. Not complaining, I'm happy I can get anything but if anyone has a suggestion re sound volume, I'm all ears!   :-D

  I run with the app volume WFO and then use my laptop volume for up/down. I don't need to ever refresh

I refresh to keep this thread current. On my system it will not update automatically when a new post hits the server.
Problem solved! I have been listening on my laptop and had all the sound problems. I just checked my desktop computer and everything is Loud and clear! So the technical problems are at my end . . . sorry Slim.  Now if I could figure out how to carry my desktop around with me . . .  :-D

They didn't have a good run. "Only" 360 or so. Big motor going in now.
