    Unhappy SA-WXR weather radar broken with PFD Build 500

    Hi all,

    I was having a real problem yesterday trying to get a wx radar from SA-WXR to display in the ND of PFD Build 500.

    I'd changed every setting I could think of in the sa_wxr.cfg but to no avail. Overnight I decided that improbable though it seems the problem may lie with the PFD. So I reverted to 499F and it solved the problem.

    I'm in discussion with Enrico about whether to raise a new ticket or tag it on an existing one. In the meantime you might want to avoid build 500 - just the PFD.

    Will do Ruediger. Still waiting to hear from Enrico. Juan has already raised a ticket over a week ago so hopefully it will be fixed soon.

    Thanks for the info, btw, i think posting the issues in the forum is a better and fastest way to solve them than tickets, im glad we can use this one.

    Regards

    If you mean this forum Juan I'm not sure PM monitor it. Of course this is the only forum we can discuss PM since Enrico decided to close the PM one.

    We have no alternative but to raise tickets for software problems. I suppose you could email him directly but he probably wouldn't appreciate that.

    I have to say I'm far from impressed that having paid so much for PM software we are denied an official forum to discuss things and have to rely on this one. Looks to me like a case of shooting yourself in the foot.

    I never received any solution to my 2 tickets summited (first was a year ago, second last week), all the help for my software problems in the past were solved with the help of the members of the PM forum, i dont understand the reason for deleting the forum area at PM site.

    Any way, we have to deal with this or find another choice for better support, but i don't have the money to spend on a new software option (sim-avionics) as many friends have done.

    Best Regards

    So because there is no official PM forum owners cannot see what others are having problems with. Consequently, multiple tickets are raised for the same problem.

    I hope Enrico can see the flaw in his decision. It was stated on the PM website that we will eventually be able to see tickets raised by others. That would be no bad thing but what is really needed is the reinstatement of the forum.

    I can understand that people were creating messages when they should have been raising a ticket but all that was required is a statement saying there will be no response to messages. A ticket HAS to be raised. I don't have a problem with that. No-one here would either I guess.

    Gents,

    Enrico has released GC501A which fixes the SA-WXR radar problem.

    Ray, are you using fs9 or fsx?
