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.

    Random Loss of cockpit sounds

    Wondering if anyone has had this issue or knows how to fix it. Randomly noticed that many cockpit sounds randomly disappeared. No click sounds with switches, flaps, speed brake. No notification chimes, no sound for warnings. Still have the ambient cockpit and engine sounds though. Ive checked my P3D and windows headset settings and all seems fine. Also all sounds work on the 737 and 747 so the issue seems to be only with the triple. Any possible solutions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Did you by chance click on another window. In the FMC, go to the sound settings, and make sure in background is set to yes. That way, if you change windows, this won't happen.

      Zack no you're not alone

      After the latest 777 update I have had this randomly, where the sound starts at normal level and then goes quiet - not totally silent but as if someone turned the monitor volume down 80%+

      Change to the 747 and it doesn't happen

      Am away on a trip, so have not had time to investigate further

      You might want to submit a ticket

        I had the same issue where the sound would just randomly decrease just like you explained. I did some investigating and found that it was something to do with my realtek sound driver, reinstalling the sound driver fixed the issue for me.

      Hey guys this is happening to me as well.
      Did someone submitted the ticket? All cockpit sounds gone after some time into the flight, no buttons clicks, etc. All gone.

          Did you update your Nvidia Driver to the lastest version,ive read a few posts on other flight sim forums saying that updating the driver has caused sound issues.

            In my case I haven't upgraded drivers in a while and it happens only on the 777. No problem with the 747 and the 737.

            Already opened a ticket with PMDG.

                I'm going to wait. The next to last update caused constant crashes on startup. The last update is working fine.

                  When installing a new Nvidia driver do you select Custom install and just install the Graphics Driver and no other Nvidia optional items e.g., like the HD Sound driver?
