Taranis X9D+ (new version) not binding w/ X6Rs

Post by dlabrie » Fri Sep 10, 2021 1:56 am

Radio-Taranis X9D+, OpenTX software, X6R receiver.

I dusted off my X9D this morning after a # of years of inactivity. I figured the smart thing to do would be to install the newest firmware, etc. Boy was I wrong...

I downloaded the OpenTx software 2.3.14 to my computer.
I flashed the new version OpenTX 2.3.14 Firmware & Bootloader (the old version was 2.1.9) to my X9D TX.
I flashed the X6R with the firmware from the FrSky site. (fw-x6r-x8r-v2.1.0)

Now I can't bind ny RXs. I have been working at this all day,watching videos and trying different things, and have gotten nowhere.

Is there a firmware flash for my X6Rs that will work with the new 2.3.14 version or do I have to try to get everything set back to an older version?

I am at a total loss here. Here is a link to some picts of my TX screen.

Thanks,
David

The OpenTx version does not determine the RF module Firmware of the tx.
You can flash the internal XJT of the tx to V2 Rf firmware and it should bind to the X6R you updated.
If you had other rxs from the 'old' days they will have to have your 'old' rxs upgraded to RF firmware V2 and re-bound to get them to work.
V2 RF firmware does not support D8 receivers.

That's incorrect.

On the FrSky site it lists an external XJT Module , update time-2020-03-24 version- ACCST D16 v2.1.0
Would this be the one I should flash?

I flashed the XJT module with the firmware above and I was able to get the x6r to bind! Yeah! Thank you for your help!

I spoke too soon. The RX binds to the TX now, but no signal gets from the TX to the RX.

The subject of this thread was

'Taranis X9D+ (new version) not binding w/ X6Rs'

This issue seems to be solved, might open a new thread ..... ;)

Do you only have one radio and one receiver? If not, do a crosscheck with other components, to verify, that the radio and/or the receiver is/are ok.

I have 3 X6Rsand one RX8R
When I first got the RX8R to bind I was able to get a signal. I couldn't get a signal with the X6Rs. Then when I went back to use the RX8R it no longer got a signal.
