    PSXseecon on OC MCP V2 VS Digits not updating

    Hi,

    I am using the V2 MCP for PSX and all works great apart from the V/S output does not sync properly with the aircraft. If I use the dial to change the V/S the aircraft changes fine but the MCP numbers freeze and do not update, it normally stops at 1000. Is there anything that I need to change in the script for this to update?

    many thanks

    Keith

    Hi Keith,

    I have the same problem with my MCP for quite some time. I always thought it was a hardware problem, but now you are reporting the same, I'll have a closer look at the software.

    Test: if MCP VS is no longer synced with the PSX VS display, try to rotate the MCP Altitude knob one position... is MCP VS now synced?

    Regards,
    Nico

    Hi Nico,

    Yes I can confirm that it does sync if I turn the altitude knob as you suggest.

    thanks for the prompt reply

    So it does over here. It is very likely, imho, that there is a hardware problem in this v2 model. I've monitored the software but it is sending the right digits to the MCP VS, but only when you 'kick' the hardware by rotaring a knob, the last received digits are displayed...

    We cannot do much about it, I'm afraid.

    Rgrds,
    Nico
