PMDG Forum Rules

1) SIGN YOUR POSTS. Since 1997, we have asked users to sign their real name, first and last, to all posts in the PMDG forum. We do this in order to keep conversations personal and familiar. You took the time to be here, we want to get to know you. This is one of the few rigid rules that we enforce regularly. We do so because we feel that forums in which users must engage one another personally are generally warmer, more collegial and friendly. Posts that are unsigned will be quietly removed without comment by the moderators, so to make your life easy- we recommend enabling your forum signature so that you never need to remember. Do this by clicking the username pull-down at the top right, then selecting "User Settings." You will find the signature editor on the ACCOUNT tab, about half way down the page. Look for "Edit Post Signature." Be sure to click the "Show Signatures" box.

2) BE NICE. We are all simmers here and no matter our differences of opinion, we share a common love of aviation, computing and simulation. Treat everyone else in the forum with respect even when you disagree. If someone frustrates you, walk away from the conversation or ask for a moderator to get involved. Speaking of Moderators, they prefer not to be treated as "The Thought Police" but if any behavior infringes on the enjoyment of another user or is otherwise considered to be unacceptable in the moderator's judgment, it will be addressed in keeping with our view of ensuring that this forum remains a healthy environment for all simmers.

3) BE LAWFUL: Any behavior that infringes upon the law, such as discussion or solicitation of piracy, threats, intimidation or abuse will be handled unsympathetically by the moderators. Threats and intimidation may, at the moderator's discretion, be provided to law enforcement for handling.

4) BE FACTUAL: When you post, always be factual. Moderators will remove posts that are determined not to be factually accurate.

5) RESPECT COPYRIGHTS: Posting of copyrighted material such as flight manuals owned by Boeing or various airlines is not allowed in this forum. If you have questions related to copyrighted material, please contact a forum moderator for clarification.

6) RESPECT PMDG: We love to hear what you like about our products. We also like to hear what you think can be improved, or what isn't working. Please do tell us and we will always treat your feedback with value. Just be sure to treat the team respectfully, as they do put a significant amount of effort into building and maintaining these great simulation products for you.

7) RESPECT PMDG DEVELOPERS: All of the developers will spend some time here. Given the ratio of developers-to-users, it simply isn't possible for us to answer every post and private message individually. Please know that we do try to read everything, but developer workload is simply too high to manage personal contact with tens-of-thousands of users simultaneously. In most cases, members of the development team will stick to conversations in the forum and will not answer private messages.

8) RESPECT OTHER DEVELOPERS: PMDG has always advocated for a strong development community and we have many friends within this community. Every developer offers something unique that helps to make the simming community larger and more vibrant. We insist that you treat our friends respectfully.

9) RESPECT MODERATORS: Moderators have a tough job, and none of them enjoy having to stomp out negativity. If a moderator has to weigh in to keep a thread peaceful, please respect that effort and refrain from giving the moderator any grief.

10) If you require official support for any of our products please open a support ticket through the support portal, https://support.precisionmanuals.com

11) This forum is designed primarily as a vehicle for the PMDG development team to interact with our customers, and for customers to interact with one another in a manner that is positive, supportive and assists in the general advancement of understanding the simulation and helping to make this and future simulations better. Any other use of this forum is not permitted, including but not limited to discussion of pricing policies, business practices, forum moderating policies, advertising of non-PMDG products, promotion of events, services or products that are not approved in advance by PMDG or any other topic deemed unacceptable by any forum administrator

12) HAVE FUN: This is the whole point of it all.

    aviaserver CDU blank since 3.0.24 update

    Been running this great add-on since the release of the 737 with no issues. With today's update, my ipads CDU is blank. 737_Options.ini file has the data in:
    [SDK]
    EnableDataBroadcast=1
    EnableCDUBroadcast.0=1
    EnableCDUBroadcast.1=1

    Don't know what else could be wrong.
    Any tips/fix would be welcomed. Have already emailed aviaserver support, waiting for now. Thanks.

    I just found the same problem. Server says client connected and all looks right except the display is BLANK.

      Out of nowhere it just showed up. However I can't get the EXEC light to extinguish.

                Disappointed that AviaCDU will apparently be effectively useless until then.

                  Folks,

                  you are being heard and not being ignored. Neither here nor on 'my' forum.
                  This caught us all by surprise and considering our common goal to create a great simulation experience, I'm positive we'll find a solution.

                  Please standby, even if that is frustrating to accept in this situation - I can fully understand it.

                      There is no need for a ticket to us. This is known as I have written already in couple of places.

                        While waiting for a solution, and if you own AAO's , the web based FMC is working just fine.

                            Folks,

                            thanks to the very quick help from our friends over at PMDG, here is a preliminary version you can test:

                            http://www.aviaworx.com/files/not_re...-22-004226.zip

                            Note - it hasn't been fully tested, especially not in FSX/P3D and might break things there. Nonetheless, it should work in MSFS (both aviaCDU and aviaOverhead).

                            Please have a go at it and feel free to report back either here or on AVSIM.

                            Happy flying!

                                  I installed the new zip and now it tells me 'no license found' when trying to use the keys on my tablet. I tried using my old key and it says it can only be used once. What do I do now?

                                    Thanks, Mark! Seems to be working great. I did have to re-enter my license code, and it took a second to authenticate, but it worked.

                                          For info, after installing the above update it solved for me the exec light remaining lit with aviaCDU but, for the very first time, ran into the flickering PFD issue. No idea if that was a coincidence or related to the update, sorry.

                                            Folks,

                                            version 18.3 of aviaServer has just been pushed out - so now this issue is fixed. As to the flickering PFD - I can't see how it relates to aviaCDU but I believe there is a different thread on that topic you might want to follow.

                                              So yeah, I never updated my PMDG to the latest version that has all these new issues but my AviaCDU automatically updated and now I have a blank screen. What is going on??? Does the latest version only work with the latest PMDG 737? I don't want to update the plane just yet as I've read of several issues and my current version is working just fine for me.

                                              Anyone?

                                                Peter-

                                                I think your question is likely directed to Mark- but I can't imagine the poor fellow trying to support customers in his own place and then having to the same here.

                                                Let me take a stab at helping you:

                                                I suspect you decideed not to update the 737 but you are now running an updated aviaWorx product, which means they cannot talk to one another.

                                                You'll need to get the airplane and the aviaWorx software both updated, then you should be fine.

                                                  Well, thanks to PMDG for not forcing updates automatically on us. I've emailed Marc about considered changing Avia software to not run updates automatically. It's really a disservice to the users to make updates happen automatically. Not all of us want to be beta testers....

                                                    For some reason it will only come on with the RH AFT fuel pump switched on. Most likely a small bug since the last update.

                                                        I'm happy to report that, even though I needed to upgrade the PMDG 737 since I wanted to do my flight today, I haven't had issues with the latest PMDG update and my AviaCDU worked normally once again. Actually had a great flight, very successful and by the book

                                                          Well, I downloaded the new version too, but the weird bug still remains (or is there a reason for these switches to function like this?). For the co-pilot CDU switch the RH AFT fuel pump, for the pilot CDU switch the LH FWD fuel pump.

                                                            I suspect you have one of your two pieces of software updated, but not the other. They should be talking to one another normally if you have them both updated.
