Thats another nasty problem which I often see, but it happens infrequently.

Have been having the same problem, second LMAV won't lock...but now I'm trying to make a track file, of course it's working fine...

However, two strange behaviours I did capture in the track file
1) The first time I go to left DDI the MAV is uncaged without me hitting uncage, just happens with sensor switch left as soon as the dot appears on the screen, and the MAV finds the area to track (the area the TPOD is pointing at) before I turn on the laser - Maybe this is expected behaviour (22:01:27 0n the trk)? ***EDIT*** checking back over old YouTube videos, the second half of this does seem to work as expected, MAV seeker slaves to tpod designated area before laser is fired - but for me the seeker still uncages when I select theDDI but before I’ve had a chance to hit the uncage button...

2) as mentioned by others already, I can't cage the second MAV, as I turn away after selecting the second target I'm hitting the cage button several times (right DDI selected), you can see the seeker bounce around but every time it hits the middle it bounces back out again

For the bouncing back after cage (it is also in the video up), I tried to hold the uncage/cage button to force it to cage (I'm not sure if it is the correct way to force to cage..), this work sometimes and sometimes it stops moving, but most of the time it cage.
this other problem is also in the track file I provide and in the video.

I just had the same issue using a JTAC instead of a Tpod. It seemed to be seeing the laser, but wouldn't lock and wouldn't fire.

Sorry, back now, I will check your track.
