Full screen CDU
Need help not to goof.
Just got my CDU. Pluged USB and S video.
Now I have to go from the virtual CDU on the computer screen to the real hardware, ie moving CDU display only on the little screen.
Any step by step instructions?

Push menu twice, and go to screen menu. Thats the place to get full screen with no frame, and the place you strech and adjust where you want the letterings to be positioned on the screen.
But you could always enter this manually in the cdu.ini file.
Here is what my look like now

ok here goes (even though it is for a competitors cdu )
in the CDU.ini look for the entry Full=
This should be on: full=on
you will get a second cdu display thats dragable and resizable on the lcd of the cdu using your computers video out.
I asume your video out on your computer is allready working ?
In your computers video properties you can see where this video out screen is positioned (left, right, above or under your main vga display). just set the correct resolution (use overscan if you can) and drag the new window you now have in PM there.
Again, i presume you use PM. Hope this helps...if not just yell.
Hope im not wrong....its been a long time since i had to follow this procedure.
Or do it from the menu as Ivar suggested we were typing at the same timewww.boeing737ng.com
