  1. Even more effective...and quicker is to grab a pen and paper😉
  2. It remained as "None"until I pressed the button which then showed as "Joystick Button 14" in XPilot. But I also noticed that when I press the "Clear Current PTT Assignment"button the assignment will jump to "Button 16", "Button 18", "Button 20", etc. After reading your message I kept cycling the button and it went thru to Button 27 and then to Joystick Button 1 which is the reference X-Plane uses for that joystick button. I did a voice test with that assignment and it works just fine. Thanks for the tip.
  3. I do not believe that to be the case. I pressed the button to choose the PTT assignment (button on back side of the left yoke horn) which is what I have been using in FSX and XPilot registered the button as the PTT assignment. The problem was that once I transmitted it did not release on the frequency even though the button clearly was no longer being pressed or in the pressed position.
  4. I have used my Honeycomb Alpha yoke with vPilot for quite some time with no problems. I used X-Pilot for the 1st time today and set up the same PTT button the yoke. It worked all too well as ATC reported I had a hot mike. The button itself is not sticking and I experimented with another button the yoke to use as PTT with the same result-mike stays open regardless of action taken. I have resorted to using a keyboard key to xmit but it is not as efficient or handy as the yoke button. Curious as to whether anyone else is experiencing this issue with the Honeycomb yoke.
  5. "Can't wait for the next chance I have to do it again." I think you mean Can't wait for the next chance to do it again." Utilizing ATC, while a requirement for IFR or Class B VFR is just an enjopyable experience whether necessary or not.
  6. Martin: Apologies for the lack of response. We were in a transition period as the Director of VA Relations had stepped down and his replacement had not yet taken over. If you would still like to submit an application please do so by contacting Tim Wong at [email protected]
  7. I was informed that it was guaranteed to be a 'typing the p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]word' problem and indeed, after ensuring that I was correctly capitalizing what needed to be I was able to gain access.
  8. Thank you. That seems to have done the trick.
  9. Logged on to network as an observer. I saw that the position DEN_TWR was active and I wanted to monitor. I was not on an active frequency myself. I opened AFV and clicked the plus sign to open another channel. I typed DEN_TWR into the "callsign box and clicked the check mark. The box displayed "not found" and I did not get the prompt to enter a frequency for the TWR so I could not monitor. It looks like I was following the manual instructions so...what am I missing?
  10. Thank you Nestor. I did re-eneter my login information and now both clients are working. Why they both worked before and then inexplicably (to me anyway) ceased to work is a slight mystery but since they are both working now I will not waste time dwelling on it. The help was most appreciated.
  11. AFV had been working just fine with VPIlot since install. Today, VPilot connects but error message states Unable to connect to voice server with error message: Error connecting to voice server: Connect failed (Unauthorized- ("type":https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7235#section-3.1", "title":"Unauthorized", "status": 401,"traceId":"242db9d5-4f6216eab71295c0.")) I reinstalled AFV to be sure I had the latest version (even though it has been automatically updating prior to this) and received this error message when I reconnected to VPilot: Error connecting to voice server: Connect failed (
  12. I tried logging in tonight and received this message: (Unauthorized - {"type":"https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7235#section-3.1","title":"Unauthorized","status":401,"traceId":"|242db9d5-4f6216eab71295c0."}) I have not had an issue before and have not changed my p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]word since initiating use of AFV last month in VPilot. The strange thing is that I had not been able to connect AFV through VRC before today-kept getting authentication failure messages-so I uninstalled and reinstalled AFV (on a different computer) without changing any login information and it worked. Bu
  13. I uninstalled and reinstalled AFV and that solved the problem. Don't know why I did not think to try that earlier!
  14. Indeed...this seems to have worked. Thank you
