SYNTHETIC VISION SYSTEM

Recommended Posts

So I've just spent $42 plus Australian dollars for the SVS and the only G1000 plane I have is the Phenom 100. So now this bloody $42 investment crashes the sim every time I load the Phenom, not happy at all. Yes I've made exceptions in the firewall and Bitdefender virus protection etc etc etc. Uninstalled both the plane and the SVS and still it crashes the sim. I would have thought these issues would have been sorted by Carenado.

If your using P3d, try uninstall the client and reinstalling it. It worked for me. also uninstall ezca2 and remove the Carenavigraph.dll entries and the file itself. Made a world of difference for me.

I'm reviving this thread in hopes of a solution (for FSX-Steam)

1. Bought the Phenom 100

2. Bought SVS

3. Both are the latest versions

4. Installed SVS but it won't show on the G 1000. (no mods installed).

5. Firewall exceptions etc. all fine

6. I only see the "Terr Err" on the PFD

7. I do see the Carenado logo with SVS started in my Systray

8. Furthermore, loading the default trike, then switching to the Phenom 100 crashes FSX-Steam. It only works if I load the Phenom 100 directly.

Finally, how do I uninstall SVS?

Thanks!

Ricardo

You need to learn how to edit you panel.cfg file. There is an entry that goes there. If you use SVS successfuly you can copy that code from one of the ones that works from its panel.cfg.  Im using it on the Phenom 300.  Same code.

Sounds like a simconnect problem to me?

What do you mean by an "entry that goes there"? What entry am I missing? I've opened up a "support ticket" with Carenado. I suspect I'll here back in a couple of weeks, if at all.

In your panel.cfg for the 100  Add the following in the [Vcockpit01}  section -

gauge09=Carenado_G1000_SVS\WebSimSVS!WebSimSVS,1,1,1,1,C_G1000.ini
 

Add it as the last entry fo that section.  Should work after that. Provided that you bought a legal copy of SVS from Carenado. An yeah, they're support is and always been terrible. But so has most other Flightsim products.  You get used to it.

I already have this entry in this section:

gauge05=Carenado_G1000_SVS\WebSimSVS!WebSimSVS,1,1,1,1,C_G1000.ini
 

I added your entry but still no luck. ....

Then there is something installed incorrectly somewhere. I would try to re-download SVS from your carenado account and re-install it. Pirated copies will also exhibit this problem.

Could you kindly stop insinuating that I have a "pirated copy"?

I already redownloaded SVs and reinstalled it, same result, the problem being that there isn't even an "uninstall" option anywhere. Anyways, I'll see what Carenado support has to say.

Not insinuating anything. Just trying to help.  I will leave you to it. Good luck with Carenado . . .  I didnt realize you are using FSX.  Im using P3d v4.5 here. FSX is 32 bit and too antiquated for me.

SVS not displaying on my installation of the Phenom 100 - Status: Resolved!

E-mailed Carenado support on Sunday, had a reply Tuesday, they sent me two replacement .dll files. This did the trick and SVS is now working. 

(I'm using FSX-Steam)

Nope, worked once, then it stopped working.

Status: not resolved. Giving up. Too much waste of time. 

I did some more fiddling around and discovered that SVS only works on my system if the plane is loaded with all systems initialized and SVS displaying on the PFD. Then, turning everything off via shift-7, then starting the plane. SVS displays correctly. 

Loading the plane in a cold and dark state leads to the "Terr Err" message.

There was definitely insinuation of theft there :(

IF you can't help just say so.

 

BTW I'm having the same issue with the SR22 v2.1 for Prepar3d v4.  Just bought SVS and the darn thing wont work.  I tried reinstalling both SVS as well as the SR22 and still no joy.  I also tried manually clicking on start.bat and all I get is a pop up "Could not start the server - check log file".

This company is probably making a few hundred thousand dollars from good paying customers - and all I see across forums is complaint after complaint.  Way too many bugs - the evidence of a good programmer that does not bother to beta test a product.

and we should not have to do all this d$m tweaking! :(

SOLVED:

1. A "COMPLETE" uninstall of ALL Carenado files and folders.

2. Restart Computer

3. Installed Carenado SVS first.

4. Installed Carenado SR22 second.

5. Restart Computer (Prepar3d v4 crashed without the restart.

6. Launched Prepard3d v4 and selected SR22 and the SVS works.

1. Bought the Phenom 100, CT182T Skylane G1000 HD and Carenado TBM 850 HD SERIES from Carenado site

2. Bought SVS

3. All are the latest versions

4. Tried to Install SVS with its serial number (after connecting to the server)

5.  SVS won't show on the G 1000 of any carenado plane

6. Read several times the instruction for use. They are confusing...

7, De-installed SVS several times and reinstalled it trying to find the correct installation process.....no luck

8. now when SVS installation process connect with the  server it says  403 Error; the number of installs for this serial number has been exceded.

9. To Carenado support: what is the next step as nothing in your QA mention this outcome?. Thanks
