Finally bought the Logitech Saitek Multi Panel and Radio panel, however I cannot get it to work with the PMDG aircraft. Someone mentioned that this is possible. Would be grateful for any feedback or links.

Thanks

Thank you Jorge, it looks very daunting, thought perhaps it would be easier but looks as if I'm going to have to do some reading and more learning.

Once you understand the basics, easy...there are already profiles for the PMDG AC that you can download and install automagically.....

Agree to aeronauta. Learning was a bit steep in the beginning of development indeed, but this doesn't apply anymore. There are quite a number of plane profiles ready to use today. Plus. there is an Assistant guiding you through configuration which is called during the first start and can be rerun later.

I drive all my Saitek Panels, 9 FIPs and the controls (Yoke, TPM etc.) via a networked SPAD.neXt installation freeing resources on the main machine, for Prepar3d as well as X-Plane, btw. I never would return to the Saitek drivers.

Kind regards, Michael

Hi Michael,

I am trying to run all Saitek panels and 9 FIPs, and having power problems. Can't get all of them to fire up at any one time; reboot and some will work, others not; reboot again and different ones will work. Maybe i have a power problem? Using 4 Belkin powered hubs; 850w ps. Can you share any ideas on how i can get stuff to all work? I have SPAD, Win7, FSX.

I am not an expert in this field, but I think a 850w power supply should be sufficient. Here are three things I would try:

- Different combinations between HUBs and PC UBS ports (maybe you already tried this).

- Connecting the devices in groups, i.e. beginning with the/a few FIPs or alternatively the panels, to one HUB, to ísolate the issue.

- Switching off the Windows USB power management. I don't recall exactly the details as this is one is one of the initial steps I did on the laptop my Saitek gear is connected to only once. I think, the present versions of SPAD.neXt give a message at startup if USB power management interferes and an option to switch if off. So you may look out for this one. Otherwise, there is a (quite old) file somewhere on the SPAD.neXt forums which does the work (i.e. registry settings) for you.

If this doesn't help, I would suggest asking at the SPAD.neXt forum under

http://www.spadnext.com/forum/

Fínally, the author of SPAD.neXt is very responsive, thus you can submit at ticket here

https://www.spadnext.com/support/

or directly from within SPAD.neXt.

Kind regards, Michael
