Config file for nav audio. - QW 787

Postby VBHB » Mon Oct 28, 2019 2:19 pm

Hi just enquiring where the config file is to turn off the nav radio button in P3D. I am using a payware aircraft and I've turned off the nav radio audio button but I'm still getting beeping from the nav identifer. I've loaded up other payware aircraft and a default P3D plane and have had no issues.

Thanks.

Which payware aircraft?

Maybe you are hearing ADF (not NAV) ?

QW 787 - other payware aircraft aren't doing it. Getting 0 support from them.

Note: I do not have QW787 to test.

Just coming into Hong Kong and the ILS is automatically tuned via the FMC/CDU and it's playing the Hong Kong ATIS. All audio buttons/switches are off. Very annoying. I'll just have to put up with it. Might buy the PDMG 777 300ER.

I do not have any QW aircraft installed anymore so cannot test.

Have you tried changing the frequency?

Yeah I've been able to avoid the beeping via imputing 111.2 as a VOR in the Nav Radio but then the ILS nav radio frequency starts beeping when that automatically tunes via the CDU. Where are the config files for the radios in P3D? Qualitywings pretty much shrugged their shoulders saying it's a P3D issue not there sim.

New or old Hong Kong airport?
ICAO code?

Which ILS and Freq is auto-tunning?

Is the QW auto-tuning from default P3D data or Navigraph data?

Do you use Navigraph data?

Wonder why QW cannot help you?

New VHHH.

QW auto-tuning. Don't know which data it's using I'm guessing P3D?

Yes I use Navigraph data.

QW have been shocking in providing support they just say it's a P3D problem so go ask LM. Geeze thanks.

I rarely fly it anymore I just use PMDG products which work perfectly.

"New VHHH."

Ok.
Which approach / ILS did you select?


I had a look at your post in the QW787 forum.
Ernie said:
"Make sure the default Nav 1 sound is turned off. This is a P3D feature not specifically QW787. "

So. lets have a look at Key assignments.

Start P3D
From the P3D Scenario screen select: Options
From Controls select : Key Assignments
From the Event Category select drop down list : Radio
Scroll down the list to VOR 1 ident (on/off)

Do you have keys assigned?
If so, give it a test on your problem.
