  1. Hey Dave, On the ATC Sounds config page, at the bottom, you have the area where you can add radio background static. I assume this is suppose to mix your WAV file of static with the TTS voices coming out of your headset during transmissions? I have your radio-static.wav file loaded but when I do radio check calls the static wav doesn't play with the TTS controller talking to me. I tried with Cerproc, Ivona 2 and Microsoft voices and can't get the static to play. Is this what this feature was designed to do? Did I miss a step? I read through the manual and the instructions look pretty straight forward.
  2. Hi I'm new on this forum. I have : -- P3D v3.4. -- LINDA 2.8.8. -- saitek radio panel -- saitek multi panel 1. I have a message error in P3d when I "reload LUA engine" --> "Saitek Multi panel is DETECTED but couldn't be opended. I don't know how to resolve this error. 2. When LINDA is open, the radio panel always show the "COM1" frenquency and erase information on the multi panel. Thanks for your help. Noel :smile:
  3. P3D crashes when these Saitek panels are installed and powered. Does not crash with panels off
  4. Hi all, I tried a forum search on this in addition to looking through the manuals but could not locate an answer. For an unknown reason, I can't get NAV1 radio to operate. Whether I input a VOR station frequency or an ILS frequency - it is not responding / working. NAV 2 is fine. Anyone have a clue as to what's going on? I've looked at the Radio Stack and the Overhead Panel and all looks ok.....I'm obviously missing something. Appreciate any assistance.
  5. Hi all, I have an issue where after a computer restart, my Saitek Radio Panel works as expected when running SPAD. However, if I quit FSX (or P3D for that matter), the display won't work again until a computer restart. That said, it's still being read, as it still changes radio frequencies (at least in the SPAD utility.) Anyone know how to fix? Thanks
  6. Hello, Please I need your help: Since some days the radios vhf1 and vhf2 of my loved MD-11 don´t work correctly. I cannot enter the frequency using the inner knob. It shows f.expl. 123,000 but I cannot enter 123,125 or 123,500. Strangeley wise vhf 3 works well. I tried already a new instalation - but no success. Thank´s for your help Peter
  7. Hello! Just one question. Does NGX support automatic radio tuning. Because many airlines have that option. I can't find a button for enabling it from my CDU. Thanks!
  8. Hi All I'm new to FSX and I think I'm misunderstanding how the sim works. I like to use the GPS systems and fly VFR at this early stage and I can't get the radios to work as advertised. The problem arises when I attempt to contact the tower of my destination airport anywhere from 20-40 miles out. Like the instructions say, I can use the Waypoint page of the GPS to look up the tower frequency. When I select it with Enter it does update the Com1 channel on the GPS itself but when I swap it to active, only the Com1 field on the GPS changes. The radio in the radio stack doesn't update to the new channel so what was the point? Even if I manually set the channel on Com1 in the radio stack (then swap it to active), the ATC menu doesn't reflect the new channel or bring up the menu for the tower, so what was the point of setting the Com1 radio if I can't talk to the tower anyway? Are there 'sync' steps I'm missing that push the com channel to the radio stack and to the ATC menu? Or to make the ATC menu actually update to match the new COM1 channel I've just set in the radio stack? It's a real challenge (and rather clunky) to have to chase down the tower in the ATC "nearest airport" menu when its beyond 2 pages down and there's a lot of airports in the area that make the airport list jump around alot. you can't pause the sim to freeze the ATC airport list because then the ATC menu becomes unresponsive. :( I'm guessing the answer here is going to be very obvious because I haven't found any other posts asking about tuning the radios. It's just me :) ThanksClark
  9. Each time I start with default aircraft, after I start the engine radios turns on and that happens: COM1 is selected (It's normal) and MRK Button is selected (I do not want this)... How can I settle radio stack defaults? Can you change the default radio frequencies? I don't want my MRK button selected after I open the avionics master switch, I'd appreciate for quick responses. thanks.
  10. Hi, just purchased and installed the Cj2 P3dV4. No Mods (yet) Can start - and fly . Everything is working except the comm/nav/adf/tpdr stack. Have tried uninstall and reinstall but no change Win 10. Any ideas? Scott
  11. Is there any documentation of the VRInsight MCP II Radio Commands? I can view the diagram in the MCP II Documentation but there is no explanation of the function. E.G is Comm a select of the comm? Where in the Radio function is Comm2 selected. When one looks at the Linda Window, there is no assignment to the Comm buttons. For example, the MCP II documentation shows Swap (<-->), AUX and Lights. What are these used for (I know swap switches primary and secondary frequencies, but how are they displayed? I can't seem to find any documentation on this section in either Linda or VRInsight documentation. Please help.
  12. I have been content with saitek drivers till now.. they have worked for me but I notice that when I switch the radio panel from com1 to com2 the BIP tiles dont switch to reflect that (same with Nav1 and Nav2). The BIP only responds to the Com and Nav buttons in the 2D and 3D cockpit (Baron 58 and variations) Does anyone who has SPAD running their panels have the same issue or does SPAD enable the BIP to interract with the radio panel settings.
  13. Is it possible to use a touch screen to tune the radios on the 737NGX? I have an Android tablet and Air Display and would like to put the pedestal on the tablet so that I can tune the radios on that tablet. Is it possible to tune using gestures such as sliding a finger vertically and horizontally? Thanks Dave
  14. I am running X-PLane 11 and the 10 day P2A trial. Everything was working yesterday, but tonight I was unable to change the COM frequency. Clicking in the NAV area brings up the 'change NAV frequency' dialog, but not for the COM radio. I have tried clicking everywhere but to no avail. I can click and switch between the active and standby frequencies, but can not get the COM frequency dialog to appear. I was also having trouble getting the SayIt dropdowns to open. I tried selecting "Always On Top" and that fixed the dropdown problem, but I still can not active the COM frequency dialog. Just as background, I have been flight simming for decades with MSFS but am brand new to both XP11 and P2A. Any ideas?
  15. When I use the EFIS radio gauge with simplugins or FSUIPC plugin I get this display COM1 Active is displaying COM2 Active COM2 Active is displaying 118.75 all the time Can someone confirm that it is problem or give me a clue on how to fix that Thanks
  16. Does anybody know how to get com1 and com2 working at the same time so they overlap so I can pick up atis info. PMDG737 P3D Dillon L.
  17. Hi, I first tried the solution found here, but was not happy with it for several reasons: The solution does not work all the time you start it. It looks like there is like a stochastic behavior (and I don't like that ) The CPU load on my system reach 6%, and more strange the CPU load stays @ 6% aven after the end of TTS sentences from P2A. I was unable to tune my radio sound as I wanted to with Voxal Voice Changer So I spend some time over Internet to find an alternative solution, and discovered the world of VST Audio plugins. Many freeware VST plugins can be found over Internet, but you first need a VST host. I've chosen Minihost Modular because it's powerful, light, propose x86 or x64, and I like the graphical editing, wiring from a module to another with mouse. Then I looked for a VST filter which could change the TTS voices to radio like and finally kept Izotope Vinyl module which doing a great job. But to modify ONLY the TTS voices coming from P2A, you need a virtual cable - see below the download link. So here is quick list to build your own: Install Virtual Cable Install Izotope Vinyl VST filter Install Minihost Modular Start P2A, in Speech settings, change the Speech output device to CABLE Input (VB-Audio virtual cable) Start Minihost Modular In Preferences, set Audio Device Type to DirectSound, set Input to CABLE Output (VB-Audio virtual cable) In Preferences, Plugin tab, you have to Scan & verify to list available VST plugin before to use it (check where the Vinyl plugin is installed and if needed add the new folder before scanning. Close Preference dialog In the main interface, right click->Add plugin->iZotope Vinyl With mouse, add a wire between left yellow AudioIn pin to left input pin of Vinyl box, and add another wire between Vinyl output pin to Audio Out pin of Minihost Modular Double click on Vinyl box to adjust you settings, you can play TTS from P2A to test them on the fly. Once you are satisfied, save your graph, you are done. Here is a view when it's ready: On Vinyl plugin I only play with the following settings: And the good thing is my CPU load is around 2%, but now only during TTS sentences. Download links: >>> Link to download the Virtual Cable from VB Audio Software >>> Link to download the Minihost Modular >>> Link to download the izotope Vynil filter Notice that those components are freeware, but for the 2 last you need to register before download. If some of you want to try and have some problem, I can give some help. Hope you will like it :smile:

    Freq. problem

    When starting the T777 with engines off, with Ivap and starting up the radio is Always on 136.97 in the Ivap panel the same happen with Vatsim using V-pilot. I can not change the radio to another freq. it automatic turns back to 136.97. When i starting up with running engines i dont have these problems. Hope somebody can help me with this. Thanks for the reply Dick.
  19. Tonight is not my night. So I'm just trying to learn how to properly check in with Tower using the G1000 and radios somewhat "realistically" and I can't get them to work as describe in the Lesson pages. This time I'm trying to manually tune the radio as described in the lessons. What is supposed to happen: look up the tower frequency in the WPT tab of the G1000 (check), highlight the tower frequency (check), press ENT to move the frequency into the Com1 input field (doesn't work), or press 'c' and manually enter the frequency into the Com 1 input field then swap the freq into the active field (check), open ATC and see the menu options for Tower there (doesn't work; the ATC menu is stuck at some Approach comm for a nearby airport and "back" takes me only to "select nearest airport" menu). I can't seem to get much radio/Garmin stuff to work as described tonight. Do the manual tuning/ATC menus work for the rest of you all? Is there something obvious I'm missing here? If I manually tune Com1 to a weather station I'll hear the broadcast, but if I tune to a Tower the ATC menu won't recognize it... ThanksClark
  20. I am building an external app that reads the COM1/2 standby and active frequencies using SimConnect. It works fine, I get the value in BCD and I know how to decode it. The problem I have is with the new 8.33 kHz variation introduced in MSFS, which causes the last digit to be unknown. The BCD result is coded on 16 bits, for 4 decimal digits, and 5 are needed. Example: When a value of 10128 is returned, that is un binary: 0010 0111 1001 0000, it codes the following decimal digits: 2 - 7 - 9 - 0, so you can easily reconstruct the frequency: 127.90 (the trailing 1 is always there). The problem is that if you increment it, it changes to 127.905 and the result returned by SimConnect is still 10128. The same BCD result for 2 different frequencies makes it impossible to use... Any comment/help is greatly welcome. Eric
  21. In a comment on my Tutorial Part 2. Flight preparation, Chris Smart has asked whether pilots flying over remote areas tune a comms radio to the distress frequency 121.5 as a matter of procedure. I do not know the answer to this. If you feel that you can help Chris, you can add your comment to the Comments section below the YouTube video. Many thanks.
  22. I cannot find any specific documentation on the AUX and Lights buttons. I have read that the base VRInsight MCP II product drives the radio section when Linda is used. But cannot find any specifics for the Lights and AUX buttons. They do not seem to work on my unit. Please HELP. I have another post dates April 27, 2016 that NO ONE has bothered to answer. Is LINDA no longer being supported. The basic VRInsisge documentation leaves much to be desired for detail.
  23. Hello. I just received the Saitek radio panel and in my hurry to see if it worked I forgot all about SPAD. I had read that some people just plugged it in and it worked without using the disk or any other drivers other than what might have install when plugging in the USB. I tried this and it didn't work so I used the provided disk. The radio worked great with all of my planes except the Flight1 King Air and the Majestic Dash 8. This makes sense considering that the other planes radios/gps run off of the FSX ones. And if I remember correctly it wouldn't tune the A2A ADF, but worked fine for everything else. I realize that I may not be able to use it with the Majestic because quite honestly I'm not even sure exactly how the communication/navigation work with such an advanced, complex aircraft. I did notice a com 1 little window in the center console and I did find a screen further back on the center console that looked like it was where you would set frequencies, but that type of aircraft is out of my league considering my current aviation knowledge. Will it just simply not work with this aircraft? The King Air is a little different. For about every 15 "clicks" of the knob the frequency might change once. And I know it won't swap frequencies at all. With this planes G1000 it should be able to do this in my mind. Is there any chance that if I delete the Saitek drivers and use SPAD drivers that these issues would clear up? Thank you for any help.
