    Lighting button MCP from CPFlight

    Hi Enrico,

    Just installed the three last version of PM Boeing (gc, mcp and cdu).
    I also use the MCP and EFIS coming from CPFlight.
    When I engage the CMD A button,the lighting of this button becomes lighting
    (it's totally normal) but the light of the CMD B button becomes lighting
    too.
    What does it mean ? Normally we engage the CMD B button only for the ILS
    arrival for a landing Cat B or C.
    Many thanks in advance for your information.
    Best regards

    Marco

    Hi Marc,

    if you press CMD B, does CMD A go off or stay on? In the MCP
    software, is it set to 737? (press Esc for the Menu).

    Ciao

    Ok, my theory: you have the 777 selected.
