did you sort this? i got the same mpg working with a 7i76 mesa card and can send you the hal file if you want

regards

First, Check and see if your pins are working.

Do you have the correct mode set in the hal file for using the encoder pins? Does your encoder pins show up in"Show Hal Configuration"?

This is a working config for that kind of mpg.

Warning: Spoiler!

You may need to install pullups on your encoder pins 16,17.

Hey Andrew,

I am working through this same setup. Can I get a copy of your HAL?

Thanks, Tim

Not Andrew, but here's a working custom HAL for my install with one of those generic multi-axis pendents.

Hi Becksvill
Could you send your hal?
I also have this MPG and 7i76 and I would be happy to run it.
