Hi,no sorry. I mean the serosoft australia MCP747 www.mcp747.com. On this site you can read that only the lagals have to be signed with PMDG. But that a long time since an update was made....greetingsMark

Yes I believe Lefteris has been working on this with Andrew at Aerosoft, as per the statement on the MCP747 website:"For existing customers wishing to use the MCP747 with PMDG's 737 the software interface has been developed and will be made available for download when legal documents have been signed with PMDG."I believe that the last word was that the software was completed and the agreement with PMDG had to be finalized prior to release. And I think that PMDG said in a forum that they would hold up on this to release concurrently with the 800/900 package. So hopefully soon.Aerosoft is no longer making this unit because of the financials and the currency exchange (which is unfortunate, because it is an outstanding piece of hardware and has given me many hours of enjoyment with PIC in FS2002...), but I hope that the compatibility upgrades for existing customers continues, and with PMDG 737NG now far and away the top of the line for jet add-ons for FS2004, this will be an outstanding combination.I'm assuming that the software upgrade would be offered when available on the mcp747 site, since that has been the procedure in the past? Or over at PMDG? At any rate, it appears Aerosoft has taken down their forum so I couldn't get any updated info there.regards,

Gents-good news. The agreement has been signed, so all that remains is a final test of the software, in its final form. I'd expect that, once Andrew sends me the final version for checking, I'll give him the go-ahead in a day or two at the most.Thanks for waiting!

Yes, the EFIS worked perfectly on my test flight with all of the ND functions.I had the same problem with the MCP going dark after I installed the firmware. I ended up playing with the MCP menu (I think checking the Reset Factory Defaults menu item cleared it up for me). I also had to install the firmware twice. Also, make sure you delete the old files and uninstall the MCP program before you upgrade.If none of that works I'd probably drop Andrew a note.regards,

Do a "Reset to Factory defaults", then unplug the power from the MCP and plug it back on... it should work then.

The bad news is that I tried that already. The good news is that it worked this time!Maybe it needed some of Lefteris magic ;-)Thanks!Ilan

Guys, anybody happen to know if the THR button on the 747MCP is supposed to set T/O power in the PMDG737 or is that function confined to the PIC767? I tried it tonight but nothing happened.Also, does the right CMD button have a function?RegardsJohn Cavanna

John-the 747MCP is simply a hardware vehicle to carry out anything that would occur in the 737NG software MCP panel. In other words, any functionality that occurs in the software can occur using the hardware.Best,

Too bad they discontinued the MCP production...Ah well, a better unit can be self-made, it just takes a bit of effort.Tero

Hi Tero,I think I will be working on one. Have been investigating components for it. Wonder how much interest there would be if something like this could be made available as a kit ?Regards,Siggy

It's worth the wait.Chris,Please verify that you have the following functionality via the Aerosoft MCP h/w (as they are not working with my setup):1. VOR R/ADF R toggle functions properly2. BARO press sets standard pressure or toggles between IN and hPa3. MTRS press toggles between ft and meters for altitude readoutEverything else is working fine ...-michael
