    What Software For TQ ?

    I had posted a similiar thread with no replies so I figured I'd try again. I am using an unknown manufactured 737 TQ. You can see it on you-tube under davemckee1. It was working under the FS2Phidgets software but I can't use that anymore, so my son sent me another software program called "DIATX" or something like that. Everything works with this program EXCEPT for the thrust reversers. On my TQ there is a microswitch (on-off) inside tto operate the thrust reversers. The unit (TQ) is using a Phidgets 8/8/8 card. Can anyone direct me to a program that will work on my TQ, I don't care whether it's a homemade software, just so it works. I am limited to long runway airports. Many Thanks Dave McKee ps "MERRY CHRISTMAS to all

    FSUIPC does not recognize or see the Phidgets 8/8/8 card. Dave

    Reversers do work with DVATX for both pots and microswitches. If you are using a microswitch you need to specify it in the digital input section (requires manual editing of the ini file). eg

    [DIGITAL_INPUT_0]
    OFFSET=089A
    OFFSET2=0932
    LENGTH=2
    ONVALUE=-4094


    Cheers

    Re: What Software For TQ ?

    OK I tried your manual editing and it works...sort of.....when I pull up on the thrust reversers they go to the off position, when I put the handles down they activate the thrust reversers...in other words...BACKWARDS from the way they are suppose to work. Any suggestions as to how to correct this? Regards Dave

    Re: What Software For TQ ?

    Since I can't seem to make contact with Diego, does anyone use his program to operate their TQ and could you check out my ini file and see if you could help me get my TQ to work? Everything is working except the thrust reversers, they operate backwards, that is..when reverse handles are down they go into reverse, when handles are pulled up they go to normal. ANY help will be MUCH appreciated. Merry Christmas to all. Dave
