Just received this box today. Would really appreciate some input/advice on the following:
The rotary encoders are really misbehaving. To the point of being unusable.
I’ll just use Altitude as an example, but it happens with all AP rotary functions.
Even if I turn slowly, 1 click at a time, it acts erratically. Sometimes it will advance the Altitude correctly by 1 increment, but more often it misses 2 or 3 clicks altogether. Very erratic. If I spin it faster, it acts as above but also goes backward (I’m turning CW for an increase, it decreases the value on the screen).
Windows is using an old generic Driver for it; there was no mention of Drivers when it installed. The instruction sheet states “Windows will automatically install the needed Drivers onto your PC- there are no other Drivers to install; installation is plug and play”.
Some pics attached for reference. I do see a message that says “Device not migrated due to partial or ambiguous match”. But it installed with no error messages.
The problem can clearly be seen when looking at the Windows test screen with the button matrix on it. Just to be sure, I tried it with X-Plane 11 as well, same symptoms.
Now, the encoders themselves have a pretty coarse feel. It only takes 16 clicks to go 360° which surprised me. I was expecting a lot more granularity.
I’m wondering if a utility program like FSUIPC7 or AxisAndOhs could help?
Any and all thoughts/advice will be greatly appreciated.
