    Project Magenta Engravity CDU refresh problems

    Hi folks !

    I'm new on that forum - building a 737NG cockpit since four years now. I just received the CDU hardware from Engravity and I'm currently performing some tests.

    I use project magenta on a networked configuration with FS9. The CDU software is running on a dedicated machine and doing fine when used with the LCD display connected on that computer.

    Here the problem: when toggling between some pages, the Engravity CDU is unable to refresh correctly what lies below the "dashed" line - especially for the RTE and HOLD pages. It looks like a communication problem between project magenta sofware and Engravity hardware.

    Did anybody experience the same situation ?

    Thanks in advance for your support,

    Stéphane

    ================
    PROBLEM IS SOLVED !
    ================

    here is what I did - this may help others having the same difficulties:

    1/ Motherboard drivers update - especially USB
    2/ BIOS update (latest version)
    3/ BIOS configuration (enable ACPI/USB buffers and ACPI/S3 handling)

    The refresh rate is improved and the lower part of the display is now consistent with the software representation.

    I hope it helps anybody ...

    the FLAP numbers (25 30 40) are missing, but the speed numbers are visible.
