  1. Yep, I just moved back another foot to test at 4 foot, and I did have to tilt it up some to recenter.
  2. Standard hat clip. Sensor sits on top, angled down slightly to get everything in the center.
  3. I'm using TrackIR right now on a Samsung 43" 4K TV from 36 inches away and it works just fine.
  4. I run a 1080 on a 43" 4k Samsung TV and it works just fine for P3d, X-plane, DCS and every other game I have. Using 4k, you can usually turn your anti aliasing options down since there are more pixels to render the shimmering is nowhere near as bad as at 1080p.
  5. I have the same problem. I don't have to restart TrackIR, just have to restart ChasePlane. I noticed too that in the top left corner, when I start it says something like ChasePlane + TrackIR but after 5-10 minutes, it just changes to ChasePlane and TrackIR no longer works. Again, restarting ChasePlane gets it working again.
  6. I can give you my reasoning which was the lack of font scaling on my 43" 4K monitor. In v10, I would have to get within a few inches of the screen and squint just to read menus and notices etc. With v11, I can read the menus in 4k but there are a few items which are still to small to be readable such as the data outputs like the FPS counter.

    GTN Checklist for Lear 35

    Ok, I was kind of close on the versions in my original post. Had most of the right numbers just in the wrong order. The GTN update tool available for download is 1.17, but even after installing, my GTN Update Tool shows I have 1.07 installed and that it is the current version. This tool version display seems weird so I'm not really sure what version I was running originally before reinstalling. Regardless, I had to uninstall both and reinstall using the latest installer from the Flight1 website and then it worked. The 1.17 version is where they added support for it.

    GTN Checklist for Lear 35

    MrSpeaker, I had the same problem. I'm not at home where i can check for sure, but it turned out that I had an older version of the GTN, v1.4 I think, and there was a newer version available, 1.7?, available from the website. For some reasons the auto-updater showed that I was on the current version but yet there was a newer version available from the web. I think I had to uninstall both the GTN and the Garmin software and then run the new installer even though it installed the same version of the Garmin software.
  9. Here are a couple pics of my rig. I included on showing the desktop with and one from my flight sim. To the right you can see my tiny 17" laptop screen. The only disadvantage to a TV vs monitor I see is that it won't auto turn on/off with the PC and the response rates are supposedly slower for which I don't even notice.
  10. I would suggest you look at moving to a larger 4K TV instead to save some money and if you have the room. I just moved from a 27" 1080p monitor to 40" Samsung 4K TV using a 970 and the difference is night and day. Even on a 40" screen, I have my DPI set to 150% in order to see icons and read text. I can't imagine having that resolution shrunk down to a 27" inch display as I would think it would be way to difficult to read. As for the GTX 970, it drives the 4K just fine, my only problem now in moving to that resolution is my CPU is now overheating when playing Fallout 4. To fix that I'm going to try some good thermal paste first and if the problem still occurs then I guess its time to add water cooling to my rig.
  11. I guess TechGuy beat me too it. BTW, I'm trying a flight right now using 30 Hz but I'm not really noticing any difference vs 60. I will probably go back to 60.
  12. I just bought a new Samsung 40" UHD TV last night (UN40KU6300FXZA) and its running P3d 3.3.5 like a dream right now at 60Hz. I went from a 27" ViewSonic 1080p monitor to this and it is like night and day. I use a single GTX 970 with an older I7-2600K 3.4 GHz overclocked to 4.2. Right now in cruise in the NGX, with ASN etc, I'm running at about 45 to 50 fps. TrackIR is very smooth, in fact after upgrading the monitor and turning off 4xSGSS, I get a better FPS and smoother experience at 4K then I ever did at 1080p. If anyone else out there is unsure of going to 4K and using a TV instead of a monitor for flight simming, don't be. It is an incredible improvement to the experience.
  13. I'm glad that this issue is being addressed. I've given up using the Citation X due to numerous CTD's with the FMC. I've gotten them near the first waypoint after takeoff at some airports and I also get them when using AP in HDG during take off, then trying to use the DTO function to navigate to the first waypoint.
