What version of eepskye are you using? In particular, have you updated to use the version compiled using QT5?
I'm now moving over to using that version only as it supports very high resolution screens better, and also the graphing of log files, which won't compile on the QT4 version.

I've got a change in that may well let eepskye flash firmware using the openTx bootloader.

I know that when I open eepsky - it asks if I want to update it .. I think it says R422 ? I say yes - it downloads but then fails to install saying corrupt.

I will download it from er9x page direct instead of via the app ... and try again.

It would be useful if you could update to the eepskye built using V5 of QTCreator. This is not automated, I've still to get it to also check for updates.
Go to the test versions thread and first download eepskye5.zip from 12-Dec-2020 19:53. To install you just copy the contents of the zip file to a suitable directory, keeping the directory structure.
The file erskyTxR223B1.zip includes an update to the .exe file.
I'll post an update to the eepskye.exe file that supports the TX18S in the next day or two.

I've just posted a new test version (B2). I noticed that openTx uses slightly different settings for the colour display on the TX18S so I've copied them. The display image may now fit better.
Some of the main screens are updated and there is a "HiRes" test feature in the Telemetry popup. This is for a new custom display. Any settings you test are not currently saved on power off, it is experimental.
