  1. Hi Pete, First ever post on a forum for help! I have the BU0836X and BBI-32, both from Leo Bodnar. I also ordered a 10k pot (Leo Bodnar) and rotary switch and have a rotary encoder on order. I am building my own multi-panel to use with the MJ Dash 8 Q400. I am familiar with your software at a semi basic level i.e. I have all my control surfaces reverse thrusters working perfectly, thanks to your excellent software and guides :-) The Issue: I am using a 10k potentiometer connected to the BUX board via the analouge (Dial) input to control the overhead panel brightness knob using a mouse macro which I have working using the guide, the problem I have is that I can't get the knob in the virtual cockpit to turn through the full 100% of travel. I tried using the full 10 ranges for action available in the axis assignment with each assignment being a short range -- when testing the travel on the potentiometer I realised that Majestic have the rotary knob as 32 seperate switched positions, each increment turning the dial 3% of the full travel, so when I turn the potentiometer clockwise the most travel I can achieve on the virtual knob is 50%. (This would be 25%, however I have doubled this with a within range and then exiting range command in the axis assignment). So, I have 32 positions in total. But I only have 10 commands to switch positions. The 10 can be doubled to 20 using the "range exited control sent" checkbox -- but what about the remaining 12 positions? I should also point out I have not yet started on the brightness down, just to keep it as simple as possible for now :-\ Given these issues I am wondering if it will even be possible to acheive the full 100% of travel (Up & Down) with a potentiometre. Should I use a 360 Deg rotary encoder to do the job, or if there is an alternative approach using the potentiometer?? Any expertise would be greatly appreciated!! Many Thanks in advance Robert
