Equipment is:

IFD 540 with Wireless, Bluetooth, and FLTA
AXP 322
MLB 100  ver 4.10

Prior to the IFD 10.2 update, traffic was being displayed with the following settings:

ARINC 429 --- Speed LOW and MLB100
RS232 --- Ch1.   Skytrax WX  | Skytrax WX 

After the IFD 10.2 update, no more traffic with the prior settings. 

Modified the settings to:

ARINC 429 Speed HIGH and OFF
RS232 --- ch1.  Skytrax Wx, Traffic   |  Skytrax Wx, Traffic

Results no more traffic.  If only using RS232, the MLB100 test simulation does not show any aircraft.

The only way to see traffic on the test simulation is to turned the settings back to how they were prior to 10.2 update which were   

ARINC 429 --- Speed LOW and MLB100
RS232 --- Ch1.   Skytrax WX  | Skytrax WX 

Regardless of which setting WX comes in without any issues; however, no traffic regardless of which settings. 

Let me know if there are any settings or anything else to look at in the UAT and/or IFD configuration.

There was a recent thread on this, and I think the answer was using an "ADS-B +" setting. 

I don't have a Skytrax, so no direct experience.

IF the setting is SKytrax+WX+Traffic, I have already tried that.
That setting listed above does not show traffic in simulation mode nor do I get traffic in normal mode. 

I only get WX 

IF the setting is different or located some where else, let me know.

I am making the change from the IFD540

Thanks.

There is another RS-232 connection that delivers position data to the MLB and that needs to be changed as well.  Manual seems to be incorrect. However before I made that change I got the message "ADSB Degraded" on the IFD with the traffic.  So you must have another problem.  In any case change the IFD side to "ADSB+ (G) and the MLB side to "Avidyne ADSB" or something like that.  For me, previous to 10.2 the format used on that line was "Aviation".

My friend Tom McFadden just contacted me and told me exactly what the issue is with my unit, he just figured out how to fix his.  He says Chris at Avidyne is GREAT and help point him in the right direction and between brainstorming they figured it out .... 

So I just tested it and it works  --- so here is the config and things to check if you run into this issue

IFD 540 on RS 232 must be set to Skytrax WX+TFC |  Skytrax WX+TFC  (that's in | out)
from there MAKE SURE on 429 config  HIGH |  OFF

Now on the UAT console (you will need a usb serial or serial port with the software and right settings to connect ) 

Make sure Arinc is set to high speed 
Change MLB100 to traffic system advisories 
Make sure baud rates are at their default port speeds (one will be 38,400 and the other 9,600 sorry do not remember which, but it will default automatically) 

He also told me to check my traffic thumbmail and make sure it is not set to below, especially if you are setting on the ground .... lol

Otherwise it works without any issues in above, nomral, and unrestrictive mode (will also work with below once you are up in the air)

He says that his traffic alerts talk only occur when traffic yellow.  He says RED was not tested :-)
He says when traffic is blue no aural alerts / as in talking.

Also make sure your transponder 1090 receive is off and UAT is set to yes  (this is based on having the UAT unit -- if not then 1090 yes probably needs to be on) 

He also explain the traffic degrade and the ADS-B + 
That is required if you want the full performance, but your aircraft must be wired for it properly to get it. 
So depending on your config, ADS-B + may not be applicable depending on your setup.
