  1. Hello,

    Just received my Simworld SST with Single CDU bay and lower EICAS.
    The whole unit has 5 VGA inputs:
    1 for Chrono
    1 for PFD/ND
    1 for upper EICAS
    1 for lower EICAS
    1 for CDU

    I would like to ask you if I will be able to connect it to a single PC with 2 GTX 750.
    How you have connected your 5 displays. Did you use any HDMI adapters?

    1. I use two GTX750 video cards in my Avionics PC to get 6 video outputs: CDU, PFD, ND, Upper and Lower EICAS, and Instructor Station. I did use some USB-powered HMDI adapters where needed.

  2. hi, i currently have 1 main PC running FSX, instead of adding another video card(im physically out of pci and other inputs on my mother board) i want to get a seperate computer for the avionics for maybe 3-4 screens (captain and first officer displays,etc..) …

    i have no idea how to setup the 2nd computer to connect with the main FSX computer. can you please help me or direct me to the correct instructions? would really appreciate it!

    1. I know that with ProSim, you can put the display modules on any PCs you want. When I have a First Officer, I put his displays on a spare laptop. Otherwise perhaps look into FSUIPC and WideFS to put things on other PCs?

    1. Der Avionik-PC muss nicht besonders leistungsstark sein, um die Arbeit zu erledigen. Ich würde denken, Sie könnten einen PC mit niedrigem bis mittlerem Niveau kaufen und es geht ihm gut. Sie suchen wahrscheinlich zwischen 500 und 800 USD. (The Avionics PC does not need to be super powerful to do the work. I would think you could buy a low to medium level PC and be just fine. You are probably looking at between $500 and $800 USD.)
