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.

    Comunications problem

    I have a problem, when I fly over the vatsim network I can't hear anything, and the radios are on the correct frequency, but no communication, I can't hear the ATC, nor can they hear me, I've tried both radios and nothing... do you know how to solve this problem? Thank you and good flight

    This is not a case for PMDG but Vatsim. Check your settings in vPilot, under audio.

        Are your frequencies you actually need to use in the “Active” window of the Audio Control Panel?

          Hello Nameless,

          Please remember to include your full name on your posts. It is the first of the forum rules that you agreed to follow when you created your account (see the top of any page on the forums), and we would hate to see your posts disappear because you aren't following the rules.

          One other thing that you can double-check is that your radios are actually turned on in the aircraft. If they are on, check that the volume and transmitter selector knobs for the radio that you are using are set correctly (I forget off the top of my head what those are called).

          I already tried, the radios are on the right frequencies, on the active frequency, they are on, the sound knob is lit, but after a few seconds it changes the frequency to one that I don't even know where it comes from.. The copilot assist in msfs2020 is off , I don't know what it could be, I've tried everything.. The point is that all the other addons I use are working correctly and pmdg is the only one where I have communication problems, I can't hear anything...

            Which pilot client are you using, vPilot or Swift?

            Does the frequency you've tuned in within the aircraft show correctly on the pilot client's interface also?

            If you type .com1 <freq> in the pilot client, are you able to communicate with ATC or still have the issue?

              Hello, I use Vpilot, when I put the frequency on Com 1 it appears right in the Vpilot window, but there is no communication, until the frequency on the radio changes without any intervention from me to any other, the Msfs2020 co pilot is disabled , which makes the thing strange, on the A310 and on the Fbw A320 everything works ok

                I flew the 736 on Saturday, speaking to 3 different VATSIM controllers on a short hop using vPilot also with no issues.

                I have experienced the frequency change thing despite having all Assistance Options turned off (major PITA...) but have had that in all aircraft recently.

                When you tune a frequency, can you show us a screenshot of the radio panel to make sure there isn't something that's inadvertently "off". I'm also hoping to be on controlling later, possibly at Malta (after 2100z*) so if you want to connect on the ground there and do any radio checks, you're more than welcome...

                  Actually I am having a similar issue. While I do have comms with ATC using vPilot, when I change views in the sim( MSFS) the frequency I was communicating on has mysteriously changed to another random frequency. This happened multiple times when I finally had to disconnect due the controller not being able to contact me. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

                  Had to use the First Officer radio to communicate. The Capt radio continues to change frequencies randomly.

                    Hi
                    I HAD been suffering from active frequency changes too. I usually fly on Vatsim with VPilot. I discovered this seemed to happen when I used the keyboard for GSX related functions. I never use any assists at all and re-checked MSFS hadn't reactivated any. Also don't use F/O assistance or FSrealistic or anything else that might interfere other than SpadneXt as an interface.

                    I did establish that some keyboard keys (e.g. 1,2,3 on the main panel - not numeric panel), were related to ATC/radios, so I removed all such keyboard controls in MSFS itself and have not had any radio interference since. I have never previously had any keyboard interference. Not sure if this was the cause but I seem to have found a solution to something!!

                      I removed all the ATC Panel Choices which were bound to 1 through 0 on the keyboard. MSFS defaults to Control + 1 thru 0 for views around the cockpit. I did not altar those settings. I hope this is what you were referring to. Thanks Paul.

                        Hi David. Yes exactly right. Hope this may have fixed it for you. I certainly haven't had a repeat of frequency changes made since I deleted all these.
