Can someone point me in the right direction for a 'simple config change? 

My IDF550 (upper display) is currently configured to received weather from the GDL69.  My IDF 540 (lower display) is set to received ADS-B weather.  Anyone have any ideas as to what change I need to make on the top display as I no longer subscribe to XM.

Just for more info, I'm running a JPI 800 engine monitor, GTX330ES, MLB100.

I would think that you need to turn off channel 2 if you are no longer interested in receiving GDL69 XM weather, and change channel 6 to Capstone HS Trfc+Wx.

For MLB 100, the correct setting is Skytrax Trfc+Wx

I found out I actually have a FDL-978-RX installed.  What is the correct setting for this?

Thank you.  

So my last question; Today I turned off CHNL 2 in/out (GDL69) and set CHNL 6 to Capstone HS Trfc+Wx.  I got neither Traffic or any weather.  If it was set to just Capstone HS Trfc I did see Traffic.  

From all I can see from the pinout of Freeflight ADSB Traffic and Weather are sent over the same wire.  

Any ideas on this one?

Just re-read what I wrote.  I set it wrong.  I set it to Capstone HS Trfc+Wx, I'll try SkyTrax Trfc+Wx tomorrow.  

btw, where can I get the latest install manual?  I've googled and found an old revision but it appears they make changes over time.

When you did the upgrade, if you downloaded all the files from Avidyne, the install manual was included in that folder.

The manual wasn't included.  Just the files and a PDF on how to update the software.

If you still have the 10.2.3.1 files, it included the installation manual, or you can request it from Avidyne

Version 2 of the 10.2.3.1 zip file included the latest (rev17 at the time) IM. The 10.2.4.1 zip file doesn't include the latest (rev18) IM or any revision for that matter.
