Hi, Another newbie question: I have a MEGA 2560 R3 board, and as a test I connected encoder to COM1 frequency and it works in MSFS. However what I need to do for VR is a set of 5 encoders, and functionality of all 5 would switch, depending on the 3-position switch (acting like 2 buttons I guess). Upper position - radio tuning, middle - heading bug etc., lower - autopilot (speed, VS, Altitude etc.). I thought that I could set it up as a precondition - if button 1 is pressed, then encoder does one thing, if not - something else. But I only see a "config item" as a possible precondition. How do I use that to work with my buttons? This switch should not depend on anything in the sim. I can't use many encoders because I have to use them in the blind, wearing VR. So 5 encoders is a max. So I need a bank switch. How can I do that?

Thanks.
