    TextLed question

    I have the new text LED phidget and have a question on set-up. My radio displays the freq. like this 1210.5 I want 121.05 Tried several different methods in the "format" box and still had no success in moving the decimal point.
    Thanks,
    Rob

    Hi Rob,

    I will emulate what you are attempting.
    Are you using the 5 character TextLED ?
    What variable are you playing with ? NAV1 ? COM1 ?

    Regards,
    Rob.

    Rob,

    The easiest would be to zip up all your ini files and email to
    groundcrew@coconutair
    I can then use your exact settings.

    Regards,
    Alan.

    I'm using Com1 and Com1_Standby on the 6digit Text LED I ask myself, "why did they use 6digit display"???? Sure makes mounting them really a PITA!

    Don't forget to zip-and-mail the FS2Phidget INI files.

    Rob,

    There are 2 known bugs with PhidgetTextLED cards that were reported by another builder and myself on the Flight Sim forum.

    (a) 122.95 displays on 6 character Text LED as 1229.5
    (b) "7" is displayed as "Z".

    Assumed you knew about that and were reporting something else.
    My apologies.

    Regards,
    Alan.

    I missed that. No problem.

    Is it a fix on the phidget side or our side? just curious.

    The folks at Phidgets are working on it as we speak.

    Rob,

    Heard thru another builder that current beta on Phidgets.com fixes TextLED bugs in this thread.

    Regards,
