Nice job Nigel! I feel your pain as far as slow progress..
I see you have what look to be the encoders and knobs from the guy on ebay... I bought that same lot. I tested these last night with Leo's new card, and running the little program that let's you hook up the encoders. It worked great, very smooth tuning on the radios with them. If these are the same ones I have they didn't work with the OC mastercard. They work smoothly with the Bodnar card though, so did the dual encoder I purchased from cockpitsonicusa.

a good start....
but you mention that you will add the 7-segments still to it. In another post you also mentioned that you are using wilco airbus.
We tried to explain that it will not be possible (as far as I know) to drive those 7segments
from wilco airbus since this addon does not keep his values for the fcu in memory where peter dowson (FSUIPC) can read. So these values are not available for reading by opencockpits software, hence not on the hardware.
In order to fill your fcu digits, opencockpits can only base itself on values present in fsuipc offsets or on values derived from values in fsuipc offsets. The standard FS autopilot has his values in fsuipc. Therefor you need an addon which writes his internal values in fsuipc offsets, like project magenta, AST for airbus. PSS does not so that, wilco most probably also not.
The exception here is the 767 by level-d. This one allows software to read his internal values and then Niko Kaan wrote the software to read them and put it in fsuipc offsets. This however is not supported anymore by Niko (I think) since his more recent software will not write the data to fsuipc but directly to the opencockpits hardware with an intermediate step via SIOC.
Hopes this clarifies somehow ... and sorry to tell you this ...
The only way an addon like PSS and wilco is usefull is for inputs via keystrokes and the mouse trapping. Output from the addons can only via the screens which can be undocked and moved around.
