Hey Stephen - So I did some research because my initial post, I stated that the only change I made prior to reinstall was updating to Opus FSI v6. However, I also updated Active Sky P3Dv45.

Check out this finding I encountered during my reinstall process and subsequent post on forum:
---------------------------------------
Hey guys! Question:
  • The Simconnect.xml that is in the HiFi\AS_P3Dv4\SimConnectFiles has this encoding in its header: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?>
  • The Simconnect.xml that is in the Prepar3D v4 SDK\config\SimConnect has this encoding in its header: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
The issue here that I use OpusFSI for head-tracking (it's weather function is turned off) and it requires the <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> version to work.

I run ASN P3DV4 in NETWORK mode and it doesn't connect with the sim unless I use the .xml file that is in the SimConnectFiles folder with the "Windows-1252" encoding. However - when I do use the provided .xml(i.e. the one with the "Windows-1252" encoding), I loose functionality of OpusFSI's TrackIR limits (which keeps my eye-point inside the defined space - i.e. the cockpit).

Can you please make use of the standard one P3D issued please?
-------------------------------------------

So it seems ASN broke my TrackIR communication with the sim.

To put this to bed, 

After editing the dll.xml, verify no changes were made to the header.

Long story short - It seems the encoding of the simconnect.xml and dll.xml files must be the same, in my case : UTF-8

OpusFSI (including eye tracking and TrackIR limits), P3D and AS4P3D (NETWORKED) are now all working!
