    Problem with home made MCP

    I built a B747-400 MCP using Open Cockpits displays and encoders. When I turn the IAS/MAC encoder the V/S display blinks and sometimes changes, the IAS/MAC display doesn't want to increase unless I turn it very slowly. I changed my Mastercard and Display card but apparently that wasn't the problem. I checked continuity on my cables. There must be something in my SIOC code causing the problem but I can't find it. Could someone check my code and see if there is a problem? I copied this file from Manlol Velez and changed the input/output numbers to match mine.

    Re: Problem with home made MCP

    There are some errors in your arguments for the iocard_display functions - you have two entries for digit 0. More importantly, are you using Project Magenta software?

    EDIT

    I see from an earlier post that you are using PM - always best to ask the simple questions first

    Are you using the OC encoders in your MCP, if so, I suggest you change your code to "acceleration 1" and see what happens

    You also need to recheck your code - a quick scan shows that you have two entries for Output 22

    Thanks for the quick reply. I have to leave for a couple of hours but I'll let you know what happens.

    Re: Problem with home made MCP

    I discovered that my IAS encoder is turning on a couple of outputs so I must have some wires crossed or touching something they shouldn't.
