Are you using plug and play modules?
I use the PSXseecon to control the radios using inputs and outputs and display card without problems.

I do not have the plug and play modules. I am making my own modules from scratch so am using only scripting to get them to work.
Have you used the OCM program? Based on the OCM manual info the unit should work with VHF_L or VHF_R and the first unit detected is setup as RCP_L initially.
Maybe Nico can advise further....

Hey Noo,
I have have same problem trying to run OC modules with 64bit PSXseecon, IE, blank displays.
Can you advise me of exactly what to change, in what file?
"Var 9010 name DecBCD2 link SUBRUTINE"

Hello Greg, copy this with the note pad. Put this in the folder SIOC.
After run SIOC , open Multiple Scripts (below) and found your script and select in the list on the left side , after Load Script and Save & Exit.

Hi Noo, I have Opencockpits plug and play NAV1, NAV2 and ADF radios. I know you got the COM radios working, did you ever have any success in making these one's work with PSXSeecon?

Hi Wardie.

Since the NAV1, NAV2 and ADF radios are tuned by the MCDU, I don't think there's a way to get them to work. The 747-400 doesn't have these radios in the pedestal anyway so you don't really need them - just an MCDU (can get software versions for iPad or Android tablet for this - iPad version at  https://apps.apple.com/us/app/psx-remote/id917931055).

Cheers,

Roger.

Hi Roger,

Thanks for your reply, that must be it. I already have the Nav and ADF radios configured for the B737-800 and was using this setup for PSX with PSXSeecon which all works well. Having the radios anyway, I wondered if they could be made to work, but you have summed it up! It would have been nice but it seems not to be.......

Thanks for the tip regarding the MCDU, much appreciated!

All the best,

Brian

Wardie, it's not possible nav and adf modules for psx  ;)
That's not true, NAV module it is possible.

Please tell me how to make it work Nico, please. If you give me the script I know how to compile it..... I would be so grateful!

Wardie - I have a couple of encoders and a button rigged up to change the freq of RCP Left at the moment. Work well through PSXeecon.

I intend to expand the use of these to control RCP right in the near future by having a selector switch which determines which freq gets changed depending on its position.

I'll have a look at controlling the NAV radios through this - not sure about how this might work.

In the MCDU, one can override the automatic frequency tuning by simply typing the appropriate data into the scratchpad e.g. 110.90/258 and then hitting LSK 4 while on the NAV RAD page. So I know the frequency can be set automatically, and then overridden by typing in the data.

An assumption to work from would be that this can be arranged using external units and PSXeecon. Whether or not this can be achieved with a Plug and Play like the OC Modules is another matter. If I get the chance in the next couple of days I'll see if the NAV freq. can be changed manually using external hardware and get back to you.

Of course, someone else reading may be able to confirm this out of their experience.

Cheers,

Roger.

EDIT: Not possible to use my encoders to change NAV freg=qs because they're not available as a PSXeecon variable (at least, I can't _see_ them?).

I have however managed to get my setup to act a bit like the old OC Multiradio - using a rotary selector switch I can now use the same two encoders and button to change RcpL, RcpC and RcpR values. With the roary switch in position 1, it affects the RcpL, position 2 = RcpR and position 3 = RcpC.
