Dear All,

I am in the process of building a radio panel with the help of Mobiflight. I have connected a tactile switch to change between active and standby frequency.
It is connected with 1 signal cable and 1 ground cable via a 10K ohm resistor.
Although working to a satisfiable degree, I am experiencing some problems. Not all inputs are correctly registrered by the Arduino, the RX led lights up at these occasions butik not the TX led.
I would say that as much as 1 of 4 inputs are "missed".

Anyone have clue on what the reason could be?

Best regards

Oskar

Hi

We know a old problem that occures at maby 20% of users..... We call it the "Logging Debug Problem"
Here 10-20% of Inputs a missed.... BUT not by Arduino.... The Problem is between Mobiflight and FSUIPC.
To Solve this its recommend to use "Logging Mode" Enable ... Typ "Debug"
( Maby we can find the nature of Problem in the future..... till then please use this first aid )

Thats Wrong....
Input switches NOT need resistor !
Simply cable 1 side to a Pin (Where you define button in settings/devices tab) and the other side to GRD of the same arduino where you use the Pin !

****
So please rework your electircal setup without ressistors ! If Problem still present please try the logging mode !
Good Luck !

Thank you so much for your nice reply.
Turning debugging on certainly helped!
I will let the resistor sit where it is, but on my next project I will leave it out.
