BEVRC CEOSD 1.6 burnt up on 6s lipo???

Well I have been running CEOSD v1.6 with 100amp current sensor for 2 months now in my 4s funjet. I have been providing 3s voltage via the balance leads of my 4s lipo to power the OSD, VTX & Cam and only running 4s though the current sensor. Everything has been running perfectly up until now. I actually removed EzOSD from my FJ to use CEOSD as I wanted an OSD that was 6s capable! Well I tried 6s for the first time yesterday, again I tapped 3s voltage from my balance leads on the 6s lipo (btw I have the power jumper on outside pins so it doesnt use current sensor voltage) when i plugged my balance lead 3s voltage into CEOSD it booted up as normal with vtx & cam and the screen indicated 12.6v for video, next I plugged in the 6s XT60 connector into the CS and after a few seconds the heatshrink melted a hole in and it smelt of burning, now the OSD doesnt work!! Testing with a multimeter Im getting 25.2v down the red/black wires from the CS to the OSD?

Has anyone successfully had CEOSD running on a 6s powered plane? Im 99% sure its all wired up as instructed. Infact I referred to this thread when I first got it and followed the instructions here.

Sorry to hear
I have ceosd v1.5 and ran it on 6s no problems.The 25v down the power wires from cs to osd is for the on screen voltage only when the jumper is in the right position.Sounds like you shorted something.

i can confirm too that ce osd v1.5 runs fine with 6s. (a bit warm but fine)

"and after a few seconds the heatshrink melted a hole in and it smelt of burning"
i did it once that by having the jumper to the wrong position and tried to power it up with 2 batterys.
