New VA MPC owner seeks help!

Recommended Posts

This isn't the most active of forums but I'm not sure where else to find the support I'm looking for so nothing ventured...

In short I've bought a second hand VA MCP and have successfully got it working with the default 737 in X Plane. So far so good but I suspect that the MCP could also be used with other default aircraft in XP like the 747 but I can't figure out how to get it working fully. Some features work but I don't seem to be able to engage or disengage the a/p using the mcp switches, they have no effect. 

In my efforts to find a solution I ended up at Spadnext and it would appear that using spadnext instead of VA software, I can not only get the MCP working with any aircraft in X Plane but also with the new MSFS2020. I have tried installing some of the online x plane profiles for default planes but the MCP just sits there, turning dials doesn't do anything even though spadnext is confirming its connected etc.

As you can tell I'm a complete novice so if anyone out there would be kind enough to confirm if what I'm trying to do is even possible, and if so, where to start, I'd be very grateful.

Thanks
