Thread: Willing to Pay to get Simming! Struggling to get Saitek equipment set up with FSX

  1. #21

    Default

    I have all my panels plugged in to the back of the yoke which is a powered hub. Off my yoke I go to a non powered USB 2.0 hub and have that plugged in to a Fresco USB 3.0 card. I use regular spad when flying 32bit sims and I use LINDA for P3DV4. Don't get me wrong. It just frustrates me when I see people start going in directions that will more then likely not help and are too difficult for a number of people in the hobby. After 38 years in the computer industry and dealing with customers always start with the easy stuff first. There were people on here who were jumping right to Power supply's and stuff.

    Do the easy known fix's first. The Windows 10 fix is well known among people who have the powered panels. Trust me I know, I don't even want to recount how many hours I searched for an answer to this after going to Windows 10.

    I also do not use the Logitech drivers as they are junk and always have been. As long as you have FSUIPC free on your computer, SPAD is the best program out there for the 32bit sims like FSX.

    As I said earlier, I use LINDA for P3DV4 as it is free and does a great job once you set it up.

    Everything's cool man! You have already taught me a few new things especially if I ever move to Windows 10. I did just come across this in my research since you aroused my curiosity you might read. I believe you already know what it's about from our conversation but to me it reinforced everything you and I both have said. Let me know what you think. I want to add the other Saitek boxes you have but I to will run into a USB problem. What about a power supply you can use with the Pro Yoke? I haven't been able to find one. That would give me a couple more ports.

    I just downloaded Linda. Never heard of it until talking to you. I kind of understand it as I use SPAD FSUIPC but what do you do with the _MACOSX? Is that for an Apple Computer?

    There is a power adapter you can buy for the yoke that plugs in the back of the yoke turning the USB ports on the back to powered usb.

    I treid one that was supposed to work from Amazon but the plug didn't fit. I haven't been able to find the Saitek one. I think they discontinued the thing when the changed hands os something. I have used a powered hub and I was getting conficks with the Pro Yoke and X52 messing up the calibration. I recently moved and when I reassemble my Simulator I just used the available ports on the CPU and have only had to calibrate a couple times in two months. Oh and when the two collided it screwed up everything I mean like had to reassign every button until I use the FSUIPC for all my buttons and the X52 Axis. Now when the crash occurs I only have to reset the axises on the Stick, yoke and peddles. I found using Spad for the Switch Box works very well the only trouble sometimes when using the starter with certain aircraft will crash FSX with usually a G3 error something like that I forget really haven't made it happen lately by not using it.

    Thanks guys, I will start trying this out on Monday. I was out of town for work and not able to get to my simulator. I am going to try the Mr. Unsavory fix first and go from there.

    Yes, I am on windows 10 and will let you guys know how it goes. If I have to, I am taking the day off on Monday to figure this all out!

    I also did that exact thing disabling the xHCI in the BIOS. Otherwise the Intel® USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller driver would say I had "Too many devices connected" which was BS because I was using powered hubs anyways.

    This is awesome...... I don't speak this language.... Any assistance? I unplugged all the Saitek devices and uninstalled the drivers. Re-installed the drivers and when prompted, plugged the devices back in. I went to run the USB power restircter thing and I got this message back on teh DOS prompt screen:

    Vendor ID (VID). For SAITEK use the default of 06A3: 06A3
    Processing VID_06A3

    Processing product PID_0763 (Pedals):
    Device instance 5&115b2927&0&1: An exception occurred: System.Security.SecurityException: Requested registry access is not allowed.
    at System.ThrowHelper.ThrowSecurityException(ExceptionResource resource)
    at Microsoft.Win32.RegistryKey.OpenSubKey(String name, Boolean writable)
    at USBEnhancedPowerManagementDisabler.Program.Main(String[] args)
    The Zone of the assembly that failed was:
    MyComputer

    I'm out until Monday but any assistance is appreciated........
