PMDG 744 Issue

There are no callouts for V1, VR, and V2 even after programming the FMC. Also, I am on finals and actually touch down when the autothrottles cause the engines to spool up uncommanded.

For the callouts, make sure the Vspeeds are are displayed on the EADI along the speedtape. You'll need to press the corresponding R LSK next to each Vspeed in the FMC to activate it.Press F1 to idle the throttles after touchdown. N1 should maintain a high approach idle of around 32% on final.

Thanks for the info on V speeds. I now see what I was doing wrong. As for the A/T, I disable it at 200 ft to hand-fly the landing. I set the throttles to idle but for some reason, the engines spool up to take-off thrust uncommanded by me.

What was the FMA indicating?I'm thinking you might have accidentally initiated a GA, but even then I don't think that's possible under manual thrust control. On the next run when you turn off the A/P, turn off both F/D's as well to clear the FMA. Also I always press F1 to go to ground idle when flying manually as soon as the main gear trucks hit the tarmac.
