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.

        What happens if you toggle the 110.50 to the bottom?

          Nothing, neither by trying to swap them, nor by pressing the little arrows at the bottom, (ILS, GLS, etc).

          When I press CLR and I try to enter other values, the same phenomenon happens when I click on the arrows of the swap .

                    That's the left side where you have already entered 110.90. You're currently trying to change the NAV2 receiver.

                    I notice that on the left side the standby window has a decimal point between 110 and 50, there is none on the right side where it says ERR. I can't help you further since I haven't used the new device yet and don't know how it works.

                      I just tried it and here are my results. Are you within range of the ILS 110.9? If not this is correct.

                        Thank you for your attention, I will continue this flight and see if this error disappears near the arrival.

                          I can set the ILS Freqs in both radios, hundreds of miles from the arrival airport. When I set the ILS freq, the VOR display for VOR 1 and 2 are both blank.

                            When I finished the flight started above to the destination airport with the B737_800 BDSF, DHL (N737KT 2020 by PMDG), (KPHX/07L N0447F380 QUAKY1 GCN DCT WINEN DCT ELY DCT PDT CHINS5 KBFI/32L​), the error described was still present and I could not activate the ILS on arrival. .


                            In fact, the problem described above does not seem to exist with the 737-700 (same flight). I can perfectly set both ILS values on both NAV receivers remotely from the arrival airport.

                              If I were having this problem, I would reinstall the 737-800

                                This has come up at least twice here since the MMR was introduced. The key is to note that the decimal point is missing. Do not attempt to enter a frequency with a missing decimal point. Do not enter a frequency until you see the decimal point.

                                This problem arises when the standby mode is set to GLS instead of ILS or VOR, and the user accidently starts entering a frequency. Now the radio is locked in the ERR mode, which will happen when any channel is entered for GLS (GLS does not use frequencies but rather channels). Now the ERR has to be cleared and a mode change made to ILS or VOR with the decimal point showing. Only when you see the decimal point has the ERR been cleared.

                                  Thank you for your answer; the problem is that I never managed to erase ERR.
                                  Reinstall the B800 or start another flight with the same aircraft?​

                                    Yeah, it took me a couple of minutes to get the decimal to appear. You can go the the Airplane Equipment options and deselect MMR and reselect it. Maybe that will reset the ERR condition.

                                      Yes, waiting for the comma to appear and selecting/deselecting MMR solved the problem. You saved me a reinstallation, thank you very much !
