EU, Universal Binding Rxs

Post by BCooke » Fri Feb 16, 2018 11:06 am

I have an elderly X9D Tx, one of the second batch to be imported into the UK. I also purchased a job lot of Rxs to install in all my models. And it has given stirling service all these years.

The Tx is now at 2.2.1, boot loader and Companion also upgraded and everything still works fine with my old Rxs.
However, I had to buy a new Tx and there's two versions - Universal and EU. I purchased the Universal version but it wouldn't bind so I swopped it for an EU version but that won't bind either.

So what do I do ?

Do I have to upgrade my Tx to the EU software, if so how?
And I'm reluctant to do that because I'll have to upgrade all my old Rxs.

What type are the Rxs? Are they "X" or "D" types?

Your original Tx is going to be "Universal", if it is that old. Where did you obtain your new purchase? Are you sure the "Universal" one you got was not actually an EU version?
The type really affects only the firmware on the internal XJT module, and it is possible to flash that with the firmware you actually need.

I purchased all the kit from T9 Hobbysport. The new Rx was ordered as a 'Universal' but that wouldn't bind so I swopped it for an EU version but that won't bind either. When I upgraded my Tx I also loaded the Rx firmware onto the SD card and tried using that to flash the new Rx but still no joy. I rather suspect that I should have left the old Tx firmware on the SD card and used that.

I've capitulated! I've upgraded the Tx for the EU firmware and am now wading through all my older Rxs upgrading them, and there's a lot of them!
