  1. I presume we are referencing the Config Tool. I find no Keyboard or Joystick assignments that are involved with either Radio Xmit or VNAV but have deleted them all and will run a test. This appears to have solved the problem. Thank you.
  2. I see no assignments for either the xmit or FLC disconnect.
  3. My yoke has a button mapped as COM1 transmit. I have verified that there are no other functions mapped to this button. When I do xmit while in VNAV mode the VNAV function changes to FPA. Re-engaging VNAV button restores that function but it still changes every time I xmit.
  4. Thank you for the painstaking attention to detail- Amazing that you caught that. Sure enough, fixing the one error restored all the liveries. Most appreciative that you took the time to assist.
  5. Back story: I was having some flight issues with VNAV disengaging and it was suggested that I uninstall/reinstall my Ejets. I did that but when I went into the FSX Select Aircraft menu the only aircraft shown in my E175 stable of 5 liveries were the Embraer house version and Cirrus liveries. I went into the aircraft.cfg file and saw that the entries for the other texture options were missing. I went into those texture folders and copied and pasted the [Flightsim.xx] descriptor livery.ini files into the aircraft.cfg file. When they still did not appear in the menu I realized that some of the livery.ini files had the same flightsim.xx number as other liveries. I renumbered all of them and now all that appears in the aircraft menu is the Embraer house livery. Here are the relevant entries from the aircraft.cfg file. I am hoping someone will spot something I am overlooking to rectify the situation.

  6. I have been flying this product for a few years now with few problems. However, recently I have found that upon landing and decelerating I receive the voice callouts of "Speed alive" "80 kts" " V1" "rotate" in succession just as they are broadcast during takeoffs. I am not configuring anything differently than I have been all along and the callouts are more of an anomaly and nuisance than a true problem. Nonetheless, if I could make them go away that would not be a bad thing. Thank you.
  7. I do run the programs from my administrator account. I appreciate your assistance . I was looking at the Navigraph forum and checked a screenshot of someone else's feelthere directory path. My feelthere folder was missing a sub-folder 'navdata'. I added that folder and amended the Navigraph install path. I then ran a Navigraph update for the feelthere Embraers and the navdata file was inserted into the navdata folder and the aircraft FMS now shows the active database as the current AIRAC 1802.
  8. Ok. This has never been a problem before and I have been doing these updates every month for about 2 years. It also does not appear to be a problem with any of the other database destinations I have in my Navagraph directory (iFly737, Majestic Q400, Carenado, etc.) so I asm thinking it is a problem with the aircraft not the data. My question is what file(s) for Navagraph should be appearing in what folder(s)? As I mentioned earlier, the ND folder of the E175 is showing a file; cycle_info.txt that shows the AIRAC cycle 1802 as the title so it looks like something is getting through. I just do not know if there are files (and what they are called) that should be present and/or might be somewhere else. Thanks
  9. From my original post: but now I have the default database of 28SEP 25OTC/06 showing with the reference NDB v3 01 5M WORLD 06-10 in green on the NAV IDENT page.
  10. I located the folder FSX/feelthere/ND and in that folder is a file cycle_info.txt that shows the AIRAC cycle 1802 as the title. Screenshot attached (using 2 monitors so it took screen shot of both) of contents of ND folder.
  11. Please relate what folders those would be and what file(s) should be present so that I can confirm.
  12. In order to solve an earlier problem where the HUD would no longer appear I performed a reinstall in FSX which did solve the problem. However, I now have a new issue apparently as a result of the reinstall (sigh). I utiilze Navagraph FMC database and am current with AIRAC 1802. The NAV IDENT before the reinstall displayed that as the ACTIVE NDB, but now I have the default database of 28SEP 25OTC/06 showing with the reference NDB v3 01 5M WORLD 06-10 in green on the NAV IDENT page. I did a redownload of AIRAC 1802 for my Embraer entry and a restart of the computer and FSX to no avail. This is the first time in 2 years of using Navagraph that the database has failed to update in the FMC. The database has updated in other aircraft models so the issue is limited to this E jet. Thank you
  13. I believe I was in VNAV and the N1 settings were showing idle thrust. Yes, VNAV does reduce the thrust for descents if I understand what you were asking.
  14. This has happened a few times but the most recent was descending through 8000' down to 4000' at 1500fpm with throttles at idle. Airspeed had been set to 210, and had been there during the early part of the descent. It rose to 260 at which time the speedbrake deployment was initiated. I have also experienced it during level flight on approach prior to glideslope capture when airspeed would not decrease (from 200 kts to a desired 160 kts) so speedbrakes were commanded but unable to deploy eben though the lever was in extended position.
  15. Here is the log..assuming this is the one needed. Frankly, screenshots are only going to show what I described-the spoiler handle in the extended position but the spoilers are still stowed in exterior views and on the EICAS diagram of spoiler/flaps extended. As well, there is no reduction in airspeed or indication of trending on the airspeed tape. e170.log
