A quick eBay search reveals there are a few "new" USB 1.1 cards going
for a couple of quid.
Otherwise I'm sure a few of us here must have some old PC's with cards
in that could be dug out at a push?

In FSX the ADF frequency set facillity doesn't work.
In FS9, last night being a good example, the GF-MCP Autopilot freezes,
after initially running OK. Last night I discovered that although the
display freezes, its knobs actually still change the various values on
the FS9 aircraft's Autopilot.
I've just spotted that the latest download of this version of GFConfig
has a readme that now covers the problem. It's apparently caused by GF
kit incompatibillity with some current mobo chipsets; I think.
So, in effect it's the computer's fault. Although latest versions of
the GF-MCP have had the firmware altered, to cope with the problem, the
earlier versions can't so be treated. The simple solution, it says, is
to install a PCI slot USB 1.1 Host Controller Card.
Really simple, apart from the fact that USB 1.1 being obsolete, no one
seems to offer these cards..............
