Saitek Multi-Panel, no Autopilot Text Display

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I have the Saitek Multi-Panel Autopilot product, and thanks to the SPAD program, I've finally seemed to be able to get it to function, at least as far as the buttons and switches and concerned.

 

However, while the LED display does illuminate to a solid red color, I have yet to actually see any text display on the panel (heading, speed, altitude information, etc).

 

Does anyone know of a way to resolve this?

 

Thanks!

This is now apparently a common bug  in the saitek panel with Windows 10.. I have the same problem.. I put up with it. and deal with it by unpluging the USB cable and re-pluging, and the text displays.

Hmm windows 10 here no problems work every time you have to be hooked up to a powered hub either your powered yoke or a powered hub - using spad v0.50 - you need that also and go to your control panel in windows hardware and make sure all of your usb hubs under properties - power management tab - uncheck allow computer to turn off this device to save power   ---  do this for everyone listed that has the option to tick off - they are under universal serial bus controllers - done problem solved

Thanks! I think that fix did it. Seems to work now, but I'll let you know if I run into any other problems.

Which fix worked ?. The APM or manually unchecking power options under USB.

I am facing the same problem now under windows 10.
