Saitek Multi Panel + PDMG 737 -> No value changes at panel

WalterG
Hi,

my configuration:

Windows 7
FSX SP2
PDMG 737 SP1
SPAD 0.51
FSUIPC 4.928 (registered)

my problem:
I can change the mcp values using the panel buttons, but the values on my panel are not changing. I never installed the saitek driver.

Any ideas what to do?

Regards Walter

PS: This is the content of my  737NGX_Options.ini:

[IRS.0]
LastPosValid=0
[IRS.1]
LastPosValid=0
[FMC]
LastPosLatLon=N5003.0E00834.5
[SDK]  
EnableDataBroadcast=1

Hi Jan,

yes I also tried this (see image below). When I generate a new profile without selecting the special mod pdmg, the panel changes the values, but not the MCP in FSX :-(

SPAD in the same drive as FSX?
Have a look in the dll.xml if the statements are there pointing to the correct location

This post was updated on .
...to make it a little bit easier, I've made a short video which should show every setting of spad.

PS: The panel works with the fsx standard airplanes using the default profile. So it must be a problem in combination with the pdmg 737.

Hello there,

I have exactly the same problem WalterG and I do not know how to solve this problem. It's very annoying! Do WaltherG managed to find a solution?

Thank you for your help.
