Forgive the stupid questions…

How are you connecting the SignaLink to the OVII? 

Are you using a serial cable with the Omni?

What OS and computer are you using? 

If I were to hazard a guess, I’d think you have a COM port issue courtesy of 
Microsoft and their device manager in Windows 10.  

I’m using SignaLink with my OVII and it works flawlessly.  I’m also using 
Windows 7 Pro and an ancient Dell 780 desktop. 

There is a FT8 group on groups.io, you might considering joint it and posting 
your questions.
