The 7i48 uses muxed encoders, which PNCconf can partially handle.
PNCconf will only see the even numbered encoders, you would have to write HAL code if you want to use the odd numbered encoders.

If that is good enough for you I can make a file for you so you can use the firmware in PNCconf that Peter sent a link for.

now If you have played with pncconf and saved a file pncconf adds a preference file its called:
.pncconf-preferences
if you haven't saved a file make a dummy one so this file is written.
after that load pncconf again and your firmware SVST6_6 should be available (chose 7i43-4 of course).

If there is a problem check that file.
Its a hidden file so to see it you must
click on show hidden' under 'view' in the file browser.
in that file there should be a line that looks like this:

<property name="customfirmwarefilename" type="string" value="~/Desktop/custom_firmware/firmware.py"/>

If not add it and try again.

I forgot to mention, in case you didnt know to add the PIN file Peter sent you in the folder
/lib/firmware/hm2/7i43-4

probably need root access to do that

thanks for the reply.
but it does not work.
I added the bit file
and downloaded firmware.py
and extract it on the desktop.
I put the text in the file also,
if it was the right file?
