Did I miss something? He says his speaker is connected to the speaker port on the G9 board. That should just work, sound options in the menu not withstanding.

Re: gruvin9x board no buzzer in opentx

Please see my reply PM. If it's the G9X 4.x board, then you just need to wire your speaker to the speaker socket, instead of where the piezo used to be. You can put the piezo back if you still have it. Then you can have loud beeps for some things (say alarms) and the speaker for others, like trim-up...

Re: 9x wont turn on after flashing

When you use companion (or eepe), you set the path to avrdude in the configuration. That one had me fooled for a while, more than once. It's under Settings / Configure Communications . Same place you select which programmer hardware you have. Default is C:/Program Files (x86)/OpenTX/avrdude.exe, on...

It should work find with Companion. What exactly is not working?

Re: 9x wont turn on after flashing

@Koarl -- can you post the AVRDUDE command used to read the firmware from the radio? Thanks. I looked at the BIN dump from your radio (t9xread.bin) radio and compared it to the .HEX file you provided above. There appears to be no correlation what-so-ever. In fact, the data from the radio (t9xread.bi...

Re: 9x wont turn on after flashing

Some random notes ... I did some checking. It's not the 128K boundary. It was all 64K boundaries. So apparently, the original USBASP firmware will not work with any code that crosses the 64K boundary. I have attached firmware for the ATmega48P and the '88P versions of my gProg (USBASP) firmware.

What you say sounds reasonable, but I already reflashed the programmer. But it's possible that I hit the wrong FW. You hit the wrong firmware for sure.

Re: 9x wont turn on after flashing

Got your email. Sorry, been super busy. Most USB ASPs (if not all) from eBay and elsewhere have buggy firmware, preventing them from flashing ATmega chips with more than 128Kb correctly. I tried a couple times to contact the USBASP firmware author with the fix, but did not succeed. So, most likely I...

Re: We [don't] need FULL back in the mixer

Pardon my ignorance if I'm going to say something stupid, but couldn't you just program a curve with the middle point and one of the ends at 100%, or -100% depending on what you want? Or didn't I understand what is required here? ? João Sure. I think that would work, too. Thanks for the suggestion....

Re: We need FULL back in the mixer

Right! I did however forget to say that one needs to set weight to +200 (with offset -100). Otherwise we only get -100 and 0, still. In summary then, to force a three position switch to only ever output -100 or +100, essentially ignoring its centre value ... [tab=30] Source: SB (for example) [tab=30...
