    Hello

    Hi Everybody,

    From the North East of England I am in the process of building a 737 cockpit, albeit not to the standards I've seen!

    My set up is
    Hardware
    Windows 7 with i7 processor with GeForce 570MDT card
    3 wrap around screens, a DVI screen (displaying flight instruments) plus a USB screen (dispalying EFB)
    VR Insight EFIS/MCP Boeing Panel
    Goflight GFTQ6 Throttle
    Saitek Proflight Rudder
    Saitek Proflight Yoke plus Throttle Quadrant (used for Landing Gear & Engines cut off / idle)
    Home made (not by me) overhead panel with USB Cards for switches and LED's

    Software
    FSX
    ifly 737NG
    Radar Contact
    Electronic Flight Bag
    FSUIPC

    At the moment I have all the switches working as they should, but now I'm struggling trying to incorporate LED's into the overhead panel.
    I have a Phidget LED card and installed FS2phidget5 but am struggling
    I guess the first problem may be -
    I'm following the manual and whilst the FSX box is green the FSUIPC box is blank
    In addition I can't get the screen shown on page 15 in the Manual - assigning FS Variables to components

    Any help or a point in the right direction would be really appreciated

    Many thanks

    Jeff

    Re: Hello

    Hi Jeff, great to see another Northerner here. And a 737 one too, bonus!

    I'm a 737 builder in Newcastle, there's a couple of others in the area too.

    Sorry I can't help with your phidget problem tho, I'm not using them. Hopefully someone else can chime in.

    Regards

    Sean

    Re: Hello

    Hi Jeff and welcome from another Northerner. I'm based near Richmond in N Yorkshire and fly mainly Ga.
    I can't help with your problem either as I use only BU0836X and KE72 for my inputs.
