    -8 How to bring in winds?

    I’ve never needed one before on the -400 or 777.

    -8 How to bring in winds?

    Thanks. Through experimentation I discovered that after I do what's describe din the article I have to go BACK to CDU 1. However, when I do and try this it doesn't work. Here's what I did: FMC COM CDU 1 - LSK 5L WIND - LSK6R REQUEST - SEND - SENDING - WIND DATA UPLINK READY - LSK 6R - LOAD - EXEC - Do not see winds. And when I try the same with the DES FORECAST UPLINK READY I get "invalid Forecast Uplink" So I have to try to figure out what I'm doing wrong.

    Also, I really have to understand the relationship between the left and center CDU’s. Still learning so I apologize if I seem like a dunce. I can’t access any other pages on the center CDU. Must be normal?

    I just did all this at 38K ft. I see the DLINK ACT* but no way to load it. No request send.

    -8 How to bring in winds?

    Thanks I’ll have a look. I was wondering if it is a sim connect problem
  6. I can bring in a PFPX COROUTE no problem but I cannot get the winds in like I could in the -400. Don’t I go to FMC COMM then LSK 5L <WIND or LSK 6L <DES FORECAST? But on both screens I see DATA LINK NO COMM. Can anyone give me an idea what I’m doing wrong? I use AS4 for weather as does PFPX. Thanks

    747-8 Power cart will not go away.

    Will do Dan. Thanks.

    747-8 Power cart will not go away.

    I can’t reproduce it unfortunately. It was my initial thoughts that it was the incorrect sequence of pulling chicks before pulling power.

    Hi Michael, I think I got it to happen in this sequence. I pulled the chocks before pulling the power cord.
  10. I have no idea why this happened, maybe I did something out of sequence but I could not get the power cart to go away. As a test I even took off with it connected. It kept saying Disconnecting the whole time with Avail lights on the overhead.

    Fixed it Keven. When it installed it said, “Detected and fixed a corruption in P3D.”

    Keven, do I uninstall it through the Windows control panel?

    How do I reinstall? it’s been ages since I last did it
  15. Latest update all my outside cameras no longer working on all aircraft. I get one view where it's showing a cutaway view. All outside cameras are doing this. I can't even use the camera control to adjust cameras. It won't do anything when I move the camera controls.
