    Problem with 4th Mastercard

    I added a 4th Mastercard for my Homemade B747-400 Overhead Panel. When I enabled it in my ini file, started the SIOC Monitor and clicked on ALL ON I got this error message and none of the digital outputs were activated: "Access violation at address 0046A1FD in module 'siocmonitor.exe'. Read of address 0000200C." I tried another mastercard and the same thing happened. Could it be a bad chip on my USB Espansion Card and if so how do I figure out which one?

    Re: Problem with 4th Mastercard

    Just checking the obvious Jerry,

    You are supplying enough current at 5 volts to J5 on the USB card?

    J5 = REGLET 2 PINS 5V+ POWER OUTPUT

    If not, you may have been dragging enough current through the computer's USB socket to power/control three MC cards but not enough when you added the last one?

    Re: Problem with 4th Mastercard

    Made sure - 5.17V. Each mastercard is connected to a separate 5V feed from a 300W power supply.

    Re: Problem with 4th Mastercard

    Okay, I swapped USB Card with one that was working for my MCP/Radios. Still got the error. Unplugged inputs & outputs on the 4th card-error. Unplugged 4th card from USB Card. The only way I can get the error message to stop is to disable the 4th card in my ini file. Oh, I'm using SIOC ver 4.4B1

    Here is my ini file:

    Re: Problem with 4th Mastercard

    Yes, I have to set the 2nd USB Card to 3 Mastercards to keep from getting the error message.

    MASTER=0,4,3,23
    MASTER=1,4,3,25

    Re: Problem with 4th Mastercard

    Jerry,
    What happens if you only turn on a few outputs for this card?. Don't turn them all on as I suspect what David says is correct. If you can turn on some and then it happens try running the last card from its own p/s.

    Re: Problem with 4th Mastercard

    I replied yesterday but I'm not sure what happened. It disappeared. As I said before, I can disconnect my output cable from the 4th Mastercard J2 and I still get the error message. I can even unplug the Mastercard from the Expansion card and still get the error. The only way to stop it is to change from 4 to 3 cards in the ini file. I'm using 8 conductors of a 10 conductor 24ga. cable to feed the 5v to the 4 cards. I wonder if that could be causing a problem. Maybe the conductors need to be separated. Is it okay to use twisted pair? One other question. I bought a couple of 120VAC - 5VDC adapters but I was afraid to use them on my Mastercards because the actual output voltage was 8.3VDC. I read somewhere that more than 5v could burn the Mastercard. Is that right?

    Re: Problem with 4th Mastercard

    Jerry

    A wild shot, but to me it sounds like a problem with the SIOC Monitor itself.
    I expect you are running version 1.2. Can you try the previous version
    which I believe should be 1,0c or even go back to 1.0.

    BTW - Manuel is working on an update of 1.4 version (part of SIOC 4.5B1) as that
    one seems to fail on certain systems. It could be part of the same problem.

    Have you asked on the OC forum? (Yes, I know they are "slow" answering or not at all )

    Re: Problem with 4th Mastercard

    Jerry,
    I agree with Per-Erik, it sounds like a problem with sioc and not with hardware.
    Good suggestion By Per-Erik.

    Re: Problem with 4th Mastercard

    Yes, I'm running ver1.2 of the Sioc Monitor. I'll try switching back to 1,0c. Still would like some input on the AC adapter though.
