  1. Sorry, but there is no such item. I believe you are talking about "Cockpit Voice Recorder". This is the button GND CTL on the RCDR section of the OVH which have to be switched on during the Cockpit Preparation CL.... Regards, Rolf
  2. #1: There are a lot of conditions to start the APPR CL based on the various possibilites, but the main conditions are that you are below transition altitude, less than 5 NM before the DECEL point and the distance to the airport is less than 25 NM ....... #2: You are writing that you use GSX. In connection with GSX I have another idea what could have caused your problem. Please do not use for GSX the keyboard numbers 1 or 2 to make certain selections in GSX because this disables the CL (1) and the Copilot (2) - if you enabled HOTKEYS in the MCDU3 OPTIONS CHECKLISTS....... Regards, Rolf
  3. Shom, please about which CL you are talking? And I need more details like in which CL and after which previous item this happens ....... because I cannot find any call named "Flight Recorder"....... Regards, Rolf
  4. 1. If you use DIR TO and thereby bypass the DECEL point then there is according to my knowledge no way to trigger the APPR CL ......... Suggestion: Use DIR TO only after the APPR CL is available on the INFO BAR 2. The AFTER ENGINE START CL automatically starts when the PB has been completed (using GSX or the internal feature) and after a certain period during which WAIT is displayed on the INFOBAR. So I assume that something was "missing" during those phases..... p.e. setting the parking brakes? Regards, Rolf
  5. Solution will be included in the next hotfix / update...... Regards, Rolf

  8. Sorry but this was already dicussed previously. If you use the CL /Copilot and want to use the PB function (without having GSX installed) then you have to disable GSX in the MCDU3 OPTION menu. Then the PB menu will automatically come up at the right time and you do not have to select the separate one. This one is only for users who do not use the complete CL and Copilot function but just want to use the PB function alone..... Regards, Rolf

  11. Jov, your are right e. g. there is a problem if you manually set "pitch trim". The reason seem to be that the "tolerances" we currently use are too small....... If you slowly use the trim wheel (click after click) with the mouse wheel through all the possible trim wheel settings for p. e. UP0.3 then you will find the right position..... for the CL to accept the setting. We have a look into this and try to find a solution. Regards, Rolf
  12. Wolfgang, that is not correct. Try to enter in the MCDU p.e. 1/UP0.3 and it should work......... Regards, Rolf

  14. Sorry but those settings are based on proposals from two RL pilots flying for a big europaen airline...... so I believe those are correct....... Regards, Rolf
  15. The set pitch trim is checked with the value in the MCDU PERF TAKEOFF page (next to the flaps setting). Standard is UP0.8. But if you use "Generate Loadsheet" and in the MCDU 3 LOAD FUEL page as well INIT then the UP0.5 from the Fuel Planner is imported into the Airbus..... Then also automatically the MCDU PERF TAKEOFF page is updated with UP0.5........ Regards, Rolf
  16. After updating to 1.8.3 (and I checked the .exe is 1.8.3.) every time I start SimStarter NG I get the message that I should update to 1.8.8 ....... Regards, Rolf
  17. Hi Peter, OK, as I have no problem with it...... Regards, Rolf
  18. In the Cockpit Preparation CL there are two WXR sections. The first one is POWER SUPPLY and PREDICTIVE WINDSHEAR. Both settings should be OFF. As this is the case when loading the aircraft state TURNAROUND nothing has to be done - it is just a check....... The second WXR section is GAIN and MODE. GAIN has to be at CAL and MODE at WX+T. As this is also the case when loading the aircraft state TURNAROUND nothing has to be done - it is also just a check... I just tried to reproduce and everything worked well. So even if you do not use the Copilot just wait and the PF will confirm the settings and then pass on. There is no need to use SKIP ITEM........ Regards, Rolf
  19. There are two important steps you have to do to work with the CL and the Copilot. First you have to selct one of the 4 predefined aircraft states and then start the CL and the Copilot. In this case one of the CL becomes "orange" e. g. it is avaibale. You can start it pushing the resp. LSK or if the hotkeys are enabled with "1". If the CL item is blinking and you hear nothing then you should check your sound settings....... One additional tip: If you enabled the hotkeys = 1 and 2 then you should not use those keys for other programs...... p. e. GSX because using "2" means switching the Copilot OFF..... Hope this explanations help to solve your issue.... Regards, Rolf
  20. Shom, could please explain this a little bit more in detail. Exactly at which point - passing the 10.000 feet? Regards, Rolf
  21. Hi Peter, I have no issues with that, but just looking through the settings I recognized those "old" values, which I cannot change. Today I deinstalled SimStarter NG (using the windows function) and manually deleted the remains in the installation folder. Then I reinstalled SimStarter NG and the splash screen settings till show the "old" values. So I do not know from where are you getting this information. The Prepar3D,cfg shows: [MAIN] User Objects=Airplane, Helicopter, Submersible, ExternalSim, Avatar LabelsSupported=Airplane, Helicopter ShowInfoText=1 Location=0,0,3840,2160,\\.\DISPLAY1 Maximized=1 HideMenuNormal=0 LocationFullScreen=0,0,3840,2160,\\.\DISPLAY1 HideMenuFullscreen=1 Regards, Rolf
  22. Die 3. Registrierkarte gibt es nicht in der "Professional" Version. Leider wurde der Screenshot im Handbuch nicht angepasst...... LG Rolf
  23. Benutze SHIFT (HOCH) + L und die MCDU 3 ist beleuchtet..... LG Rolf
  24. 1. All the EXT LIGHTS settings are based on RL procedures - nose (to TAXI) and runway lights are set on before or during taxi.... Those precedures may vary between airlines but we used the procedure of a mayjor european airline. In the BEFORE TAKEOFF CL only the landing lights are switched on. Nose lights stay on TAXI because using the TO position could blind when flying through clouds. 2. This is also done in RL e. g. just after rotation the nose and runway lights are switched off. In the AFTER TO CL there is only a check ...... 3. Setting the autobrake before passing 10.000 feet is also RL procedure..... 4. This is also valid for cabing signs e. g. those are set to on after passing 10.000 feet..... Remember the CL is just a check and it does not mean that all settings are made during the CL .... Regards, Rolf
  25. Please get me the value you are working with e.g. the one displayed in the MCDU 3 after INIT LOADSHEET as well as the one in the MCDU 1 PERF page - (obviously both values should be the same...) Then I will try to reproduce...... Regards, Rolf
