    There is some information in the user manual for installation and chart viewing. I believe the issue is to ensure Adobe Reader must be the default application for PDF documents. I find that Windows 10 often resets to Edge browser.
  2. There is a topic already that describes something that you may be interested in using. Topic: Another method to downgrade TTS voices to radio quality with low cpu load.
  3. I do think you have to be connected to the aircraft and the frequency changes must be happening. When you first connect you should receive ATIS with CLRDEL in the standby. Then swap frequency and (on mine there can be a lengthy hang). If the PTT button isn't going green then this is the hang. Just give it some time. Maybe up to a minute. Known bug but unknown cause at this point. If it doesn't change in the plane then ensure the PWR button on the lower left is green. If not that you will likely need to enable Avionics and Battery switch in Config/P2A Setup. What plane are you flying? Picking one of the stock like Baron 58 is a good place as the interface with Pilot2atc is not an issue. Once you get to a controller frequency you should be good to go. I reviewed the instructions for sound. I hope you don't have a controllers/controllers/... situation going on. Step by step and you will solve it. Once you do you will definitely love this addition.
  4. I don't specify the sound path and all works. Learned this from Dave. It sucks that pictures cannot be posted in the forum as this is worth a thousand words. Copied instructions from another post. Just inform Dave what the problem is and attach your log file. I am sure he will have a strong idea or find a new bug. You should include information about what you are running this software upon. Just thought of this possibility. Is the frequency changing in the plane? I know may be dumb question but I fly FF 777 a lot and this happens to me all the time. I have to enable Pilot2atc to control the radio. Please email the P2A log file for this flight to admin@pilot2atc.com. Log files are located in: C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\P2A_200\Logs where <UserName> is your PC user name A new one is created each time you start Pilot2ATC, so if you take the most recent one when you have the error, you should have the correct one. This is the best place to see what is going wrong. It is a bit cryptic but easy to read. It is easy to do something wrong at the beginning with this software. For the longest time I couldn't get ATC Chatter the old long file versions to work.
  5. One thing I noticed was the path to pilot2atc. Mine is named Pilot2ATC_2016_x64. Of course it can be changed during install. You don't need to specify the path for the sound files. This can eliminate a possible error not that you have just easier. I will assume that there are a 10 sub folders in controllers each with sound files. Maybe volume turned down. Click on COM1 standby like you were going to enter a frequency. Click on the UP button which controls sound volume. Everything you describe sounds correct.
  6. Is there a chance that the path to Pilot2ATC is incorrect? With the upgrade to 64 bit, Dave changed the name of the directory for P2A. I myself made this mistake the first time a cycle updated. I am using P2A with NavDataPro with no problem but I did update the pathing.
  7. Upgrading to 2.4.0.4 will certainly help many of the problems being experienced.
  8. I am running 24.04 and using Saitek Yoke Pro. I like the left button under my index finger and for me it is button zero. I select the yoke, and click the desired button which changes the button to zero. When I go back it is setup but not enabled. I must enable the button for it to work. I also believe that it must not be assigned in X plane. If you have the resources for the 64bit version this will be far superior to the 32bit especially if you are interested in adding voices to your system.
  9. You must have caught it just as it was being added to the website. I just attempted to download full and update and the save as dialogue came up so I think just give it another try.
  10. Dave posted in here somewhere about the double ATIS voices. Yes, I thought the same thing with ATC unchecked. Radio volume works great. If you aren't 2404 then I suggest upgrade. What are you using for weather in Pilot2ATC? If using NOAA with a flight plan loaded normal connect time is 17 seconds. If in the minute range then something is likely running in the background like MS updates, virus scan, file history etc. I have never flown VFR, the last time I tried Pilot2ATC just would return to IFR and haven't tried since. Using SIM Pilot2ATC weather is the fastest connect time under 10 seconds. However, you MUST have X plane up running with plane loaded other Pilot2ATC will reconfigure for NOAA. I know once you flown with Pilot2ATC I can't even be bothered getting in a plane except for cold start procedure training. Add to this the support for voices for the controllers and the ATC Chatter it feels like the real thing and just keeps getting better. Dave how about adding some humor to the communication once in a while? While listening to the ATC Chatter I find the communication much less formal than Pilot2ATC.
  11. I am glad to hear this. I hope you have updated to R3 of 2403 via update as there are some very annoying problems connecting to sim using SIM weather in Pilot2atc. I use button 2 as I am left handed. Happy flying
  12. The two voices occurs if X-plane sound for radio is turned up and Pilot2ATC option to provide ATIS is enabled. I like to have Pilot2ATC read it to me using my purchased voices. The solution is to go into X plane settings, sound tab and set radio volume slider to the left at 0. Now you will only hear one voice. I don't know what Revo and I really doubt it is needed since Pilot2ATC I don't believe uses any registry entries same as X plane. I highly recommend using the website full installer to get to 2403 and then the update to raise it to 2403r3. This latest release resolves a lot of problems with connecting to the simulator due to issues with weather. It is the best place to start the hunt for new problems.
  13. Upgrade to 2403r3 may address all of these problems.
  14. I am using a Saitek pro yoke and no problems with the PTT button. I seem to recall that I had to make sure this button is no assigned in X plane anywhere. X plane and Pilot2ATC do not know anything about each other. In X plane I think it should be set to Do nothing. Same thing for any other keys or buttons that you would like to use.
  15. Well, the update won't replace the Taximaint database. If you aren't doing this activity then no impact. If you have a subscription to Navigraph or NavDataPro for airac cycles, then the update won't downgrade your airac cycle otherwise you will have to run the appropriate cycle updating software.
