Re: ArduVoice-9x Voice Module with Arduino for the 9x Radio

OK everything is installed and the sound board powers up. I removed OEM beeper and transistor. I get a beep when powering up from ArduVoice. I enabled M'sound serial in hardware mode and changed mode sound to Megasound. How do I setup what file plays for whatever switch is toggled ? Or is that the ...

Re: ArduVoice-9x Voice Module with Arduino for the 9x Radio

The only thing I haven’t got working yet is the volume control from one of the pots....must be doing something wrong! Go to "Model Setup / General", Scroll down to "Volume Control" and select the Pot you want to control the volume with. @Mike I have just tested this, the volume pot works, but I can...

Re: ArduVoice-9x Voice Module with Arduino for the 9x Radio

Hi, after your recent PMs, thought I’d have a look in here as it’s been some time.... Regarding your questions:- 1. I didn’t remove the resistors on mine and all seems to work ok. 2. I did remove the original beeper and connected to the new board instead. Beeps work well. The only thing I haven’t go...

Re: ArduVoice-9x Voice Module with Arduino for the 9x Radio

Yes, that works !!! I'd spent ages trying to figure it out but hadn't just grasped the concept. I've got a Taranis (OpenTx), a 9x with 9xtreme (Ersky9x) and this 9X (Er9x) with the voice mod and each requires something a bit different....I was getting a bit confused but its all sorted now.

Hello, another question please....is it supposed to be possible to upload new voice files to the SD card, using the serial adapter ? If it is, I haven't figured out how to yet, I have to take the SD card out of the radio each time. I can access the "models" on the SD card using Epee, but thats all. ...

Re: ArduVoice-9x Voice Module with Arduino for the 9x Radio

I realised that at the time I was trying to setup the audio alarms, I had "beeper" set to "Quiet".....that's where I was going wrong.....once I set it differently, everything then worked ok. Another case of "Operator error" 🙄
Thanks to both of you for helping sort out his out !

Yes, I hear the beeps ok. I isolated the pcb track to the original beeper and connected it to the new voice board.

Re: ArduVoice-9x Voice Module with Arduino for the 9x Radio

I was a bit confused at first over the programming, regarding the references to loading bootloader and firmware but having just read it all again, I take it that it is meaning just to the voice module....not to the radio itself ? If I'm wrong please let me know.

Re: Turnigy9x 128, OpenTX, Telemetrez and Switch Error

I was pretty sure it would be a firmware problem....tried reverting the Telemetrez firmware to r86 and all is well.
The smartieparts 2.4 board has made all this so easy.
