Re: Orange Module running MULTI protocol

No data arriving on COM 1.
I'll ask you to check the wire you added from the processor pin to the bottom pin of the module connector is still connecting OK.

Re: Orange Module running MULTI protocol

I have mine working in the last 'PRO beta Tx. Check the Real Time Clock is running and the battery hasn't gone flat. The inverter for the telemetry input is controlled from an output of the RTC chip, and doesn't work properly if the RTC battery is flat. If the RTC battery is flat, change the INVERT ...

Re: 9Xtreme Add 2nd Internal XJT Mod

Yes, just connect both modules to the same signal (com1).
As an alternative, connect an internal XJT to COM1, and connect the external module to COM2 if it is only ever to be used for single direction data.

Re: Orange Module running MULTI protocol

Looks like all the firmware flashing is fine, and the hardware serial connections must be OK or the flashing from maintenance mode would not have worked. What you are not getting is the telemetry/status data from the module. With everything as you last had it (Multi/FLYSKY selected and the LED on th...

Re: 9Xtreme Add 2nd Internal XJT Mod

The hardware was not designed to support TWO SPort connections. The FrSky transmitters have their internal XJT connected to the same SPort signal as any external module. What configuration are you considering? If you connect the internal XJT SPort signal to COM1 (SPort connection), then all should w...

Re: Orange Module running MULTI protocol

Yes you want the PdiMini sketch. The fast flashing (5 times per second) is correct if you run the sketch when not connected to the Orange module, it indicates a failure to flash, which is correct since it doesn't have anything to flash! You get the slow flashing when it is connected to the Orange mo...

Re: Ersky9x Bug Reporting

You may save the "EEPROM" in two formats, .bin and .eepe. A .bin file is a direct copy of the EEPROM on the radio, and doesn't have anywhere to store the mixer notes. A .eepe file is actually a XML file and does store the notes.

Re: 9Xtreme Add 2nd Internal XJT Mod

Either only one module on at a time, or, if using a XJT module in the external bay, disable telemetry operation on that module by setting both dip switches up and re-binding to a receiver.

Re: 9Xtreme Add 2nd Internal XJT Mod

The SPort signal is half-duplex, but the COM port is multiplexed outside of the processor using a 3-state buffer. The data polarity is inverted. To use COM2 for SPort data you will need an inverter. There is no firmware support for sending SPort data out using COM2. The 9Xtreme includes power switch...

Re: Flashed Er9x - extremely disapointed

Do you have eepe installed on your PC? This program lets you edit models and simulate them on the PC. The AVR processor includes some "option fuses". One of these, if set, prevents the EEPROM from being erased when you flash new firmware. If not set, then every time you flash new firmware you will g...

Yes, if you move the connection from the 4th position to the 3rd position, and leave the 4th position unconnected, then run the calibration it should all work.

Re: Manual calibration for 6POS switch?

The voltages from the 6-pos switch should be in an increasing or decreasing order. You show "0.00-1.07-1.66-1.48-1.77-3.3".
The 1.48 value is out of sequence. Can you change the connections so this swaps with the 1.66 value?

Re: Adding MAVLINK support

The data blinking indicates telemetry data hasn't arrived for a while.
What revision of ersky9x are you running?
On recent test versions I've added individual timeouts on telemetry data, together with an option to extend the timeout.

Re: Orange Module running MULTI protocol

I did use the "RAW" input for the 3.3V from the module. This feeds the 'Mini's 5V regulator (allowing 9-10V as the supply), so you get a small voltage drop through that. Using VCC should work OK, you just avoid that voltage drop. I used the "RAW" input so if I made a mistake and connected a higher v...

The 9Xtreme does have a full SPort in hardware, so it is just a case of connecting to the module bay pins (carefully, power and ground need to swap over).
