NO ILS AUTOTUNE AFTER UPDATE

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have updated to the latest T7 200/300 updates and now both types don't auto tune the ILS frequencies when the ILS Approach is selected on the arrivals page. By the way, this all worked as advertised before the last update.

 

I have removed the previous installation of both T7 versions as per instructions via the CP for a clean install. Just "PARK" is now displayed where the ils freq/with a small park would normally be on the NAVRAD page. Needless to say I am at a loss - no idea why it suddenly does not work. The locations checked so far is OMDB (FlyTampa) and OTHH (TaxiToGate). I always load the Long panel state when prepping for a flight. I have the latest scenery files and AIRAC data installed in all products.

 

Any ideas?

Miguel,

 

Thanks for your input but I don't think it is Navigraph. The FMC shows the correct Nav Cycle 1602 - all other aircraft including the NGX has no issues with the latest AIRAC.

 

Done my second clean install with no success. Have re downloaded the updates and will give it another go. Very weird indeed in my instance, considering everything worked perfectly, prior to me performing the latest updates for the T7. Am I again the subject of the dreaded "Ghost in the Machine" event that nobody else experience.

 

So be it - lets start the delete and install process again. :Hmmmph:

 

Cheers,

Well after  doing  a second  reinstall   and  still didn't  work  and  your thinking of  doing  a  third, what makes  you think  doing  a third  re install will work , maybe  3rd time  lucky. as  Kyle  has mentioned  a few  times  already  doing  re installs  will unlikely  fix  the issue  and  most likely  cause  more  issues, best bet is  to put  in a support  ticket  in

Hi, Don

 

First, a question:  Are you starting directly from the Long Panel State, or are you starting with  your own previously saved flight (that may have been started from the Long Panel State)?  If so, your saved situation-with-panel-state may have been corrupted.  So try starting with an unmodified, PMDG-supplied panel state (such as Long Panel State).

 

Second, a suggestion:  Since the problem happens with the 777 but not the NGX, try backing up and deleting ARPT_RWY.dat in FSX/PMDG/Navdata folder.  It is used by the 777 but not the NGX.  It is not part of the Airac.  It will rebuild when you reload the 777.

AIRAC 1602 first download was corrupt . NAVIGRAPH released a 2nd file. I had to do a total clean reinstall and applied the new 1602 pacakage , and everything works perfectly now.

You can confirm this visiting their forum. You must be logged.

 

Best.

Mike777, thanks mate, I have tried that and it didn't work.

 

Miquel, that is good news! Hopefully that fixes my problem too.

Miguel,

 

Where did you find the updated AIRAC 1602 for PMDG. An updated version should read Rev 2 but I can't seem to find a Rev 2 for the PMDG AIRAC. I did log into Navigraph.

 

Cheers,

Don, the AIRAC package was corrupt. It´s not a new revision. Just re- download the AIRAC.

Have you read the Navigraph forum?

 

Best.

Yeah I did. And re-downloading and installing the AIRAC did not fix my problem. I still get no ILS at NZCH for instance (T7 300 No Auto tune).

Running the program as an admin?

Anyone:

If you have some steps for us to try, let us know. However, if something was working prior to an AIRAC update, and then it stopped after it, even the most basic of scientific method would point to the AIRAC.

Ok,

 

Just finished a test flight YSSY to NZCH and the ILS auto tuned. Don't know what fixed it - I re-installed the T7, Navigraph AIRAC 1602 and deleted that RWY file in the NavData Folder. Something must have worked.

 

Thanks for all the advice - really appreciate it!

Do you all mean to re-install my T7 200/300 and re-install the AIRAC1602?

 

Same problem also happen to 747, not test 737 yet~

 

Thanks

Could someone please confirm that there is NO NEED to reinstall THE WHOLE 777 in order to have the ILS autotune back, but only the correct Nav database? I don't see the point in reinstalling the whole airplane!

Thanks.

Correct.

 

Everyone, repeat after me:

The solution to my problems is not a reinstall.

The solution to my problems is not a reinstall.

The solution to my problems is not a reinstall.

 

Seriously. I know I say it a lot, but it's true. You all won't believe how many times I hear "I tried to reinstall, but the problem is still here!" Most of the time, reinstalls do nothing for you other than waste your time, and open you up to the possibility that the reinstall causes other problems.

The problem is when I install AIRAC1601 back

 

The problem still exists

 

If it is because 1602, then it should be normal when I return to 1601, but the answer is not

Full names - first and last - in the forum, please.

 

Delete the APT_RWY.dat in the [sim folder] > PMDG > NAVDATA folder. It will rebuild with the updated navdata on the next sim run.

I have tried this method as well

 

Same problem, showing PARK at NAVRAD page

 

But I will try again, hopefully return normal

 

Or I should wait 1603?

All airports or just a couple? If it's random, have you updated the scenery at those airports? If not, keep in mind that the default airport data is over a decade old now.

I have tried in VHHH mostly, but also try ROAH

 

From your suggestion, base on 1601 or 1602?

 

Thanks

Doesn't matter if it's 1602 or 1601. If the sim data doesn't match your Navigraph data, then the 777 isn't going to pick up the signal. In other words, if the sim is broadcasting on 110.1, but the nav data is telling it to watch for 111.3, then it'll never pick it up.

Copy, I will try at other airport

 

Because I try it on 737 and 777

 

The 737 giving me the wrong freq on that ILS

 

So I expect there are some fault on 1602

 

Thanks

On the INIT REF > APPROACH REF page? If so, that's your nav data. By "wrong" do you mean "not matching a current chart" or what?

For 737, at the INIT REF page, the ILS given from it was not match the current freq

 

For 777, I just tried on other airport, still showing PARK in NAVRAD page for ILS

 

Thanks
