Hi guys, I recently tried to get my VRinsight equipment up and running again. Unfortunately the CDU II is not displaying (the screen) anything, not windows or FSX in the sim. The odd thing is, the VRsim program (that connects the hardware to the sim) shows the CDU II as a usable device and I tested the CDU II with the NGX and the buttons on the physical CDU hardware, interface fine and work with the FMC display in game, so I know that the keyboard/USB portion of the CDU II is still functioning. Whats left is the display is black, as in the monitor won't show any video. So I have tried a few things: I thought maybe the VGA cable was the issue, so I borrowed a friends VGA cable, no luck. I thought the graphics card was the issue, updated all the drivers, rolled back. no luck With my main monitor, I took out the DVI cable, and connected the main monitor (an HP) to my GPU with the same VGA cable. Monitor worked fine with the VGA cable, so the cable is good. Tried to connect the CDU VGA cable to the DVI input in my GPU (with the VGA-DVI converter) and no luck. The CDU's power cable: I have tested it with my VRinsight MCP, and the power cable provided power to the MCP panel. Power cable is fine. (the CDU and MCP cables have the same voltage) Also, the CDU II is recognized as an "analog" display. The computer recognizes the monitor, but for some reason no video shows on the physical CDU II screen. I had this working last year, and installed it the same way this time, and followed the VRinsight CDU II manual to the letter. No luck. I should add: This CDU worked 100% on my previous graphics card, my GTX 560, last year. I recently downgraded to a GT 730 (560 fried), so I am not sure how that would affect the video portion of it. Switched to windows 10 a few weeks ago. The CDU worked great on windows 7. Also not sure what affect that would have. All other PC hardware from last year to now = no change. My biggest fear is that the monitor/screen on the CDU II is somehow broken. Sorry for the long post, and thanks to anyone who can provide any input of some kind. I really do appreciate it. Kind Regards Chris Kennedy
Hello all. I'm new to forums so I hope I am following etiquette. I have an Asus G53J with a GeForce GTX 460m graphics card with an HDMI and a VGA port. When I fly FSX I like to connect the HDMI to my LCD TV with Virtual Cockpit and drag a 2D panel onto my laptop screen for a better view of instruments. I am somewhat versed in the windows setup of multiple monitors. My problem is this. I dragged out a not-so-old monitor that connects with a VGA hoping to use this for my 2D panel instead of the laptop because it is larger. I had read on the internet that my computer could not use both HDMI and VGA at the same time for whatever reason. I played around in the screen setup of the computer hoping that I could send the signal that my laptop would normally display to the older monitor and the VC picture to my TV. Pretty much I was hoping that I could "turn off" the laptop display so the computer could display on the older monitor and the TV. Kind of trick it into thinking it was only supporting two signals or whatever. I'm no computer genius, so the closest I managed was to get my desktop on my TV and a background on the older monitor while my laptop screen went black. Thinking that this had worked I entered FSX and was in "windowed mode" or whatever its called so I could drag undocked panels to other screen. Of course, for some reason the panel would not drag to the other monitor. I have had no problems with this when doing it with just the laptop and TV. Maybe my card just isn't capable of this? If anyone has any input it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, and good flying! Again, if I posted the wrong way or in the wrong area please let me know. Like I said this is my very first forum.
My GTX560Ti almost out of warranty so I sold it (yeah, out of warranty = less money and hard to sell) and look for a better one. From what I know the 650Ti is not as powerful as 560Ti. The 660Ti and the new GTX760 is faster and more powerful. I'm changing to FSX now so it will be my main sim. Should I get the 660Ti / 760? Does the difference noticeable (comparing to GTX560Ti)? When I use my GTX560Ti, my system didn't handle well FSX. I don't know if it's the CPU or the VGA that needs upgrading. Thanks all!
