Question
HTS Voice - problems

Just got my HTS voice today. I am facing some problems with it.

According to the instruction, the unit can be used without the sensor station, reading out only Rx voltage. But I can't get it to work WITHOUT the HTS SS.

Again according to the instruction, when it is first powered on, it will go into set up mode. Try as I might for a few hours, I can't get it into the set up mode.
It stays in the 10 sec mode.

Can anyone with some experience with it help me? Thanks!

Ok please ignore the second question. I have just figured out where I have gone wrong. I have to ROTATE the switch to UP and not push it down.

I am still trying to get it to work without the HTS SS.

Hitec regret that there is an error in the instruction as HTS-Voice is currently unable to read out RX voltage as described.
A firmware upgrade, installed via HPP-22 and Telemetry Command Centre, for solving this problem will be available early Feb 2012.

As soon as upgarde is available, details will be added this thread and under "Telemetry" of Hitec USA Support Forum Sticky:

You have got to be kidding me.

Hitec ship out a voice unit that does not work in its most basic form, ie. rx or spc voltage.

I've wasted a whole morning here, switching things off and on and in different orders to try to get this thing working.

Lucky I found this thread because it was just going back in the box as faulty.

I wonder how many Hitec are going to get back as "faulty".

This is not good advertising, it's the last time I buy anything Hitec without hearing or seeing it working first I assure you.

Release has been by few distributors, others wait until after the new programming feature is updated on the HPP-22 Telemetry Control Center, refer post #3 above.

Have patience young skywalker, the force will be with you soon.






And A.T. are you really telling me the dealers are going to unbox their stock and reprogramme all these units before delivery to customers. I think not.

1. Some of the smaller distributors do update every unit to latest version before issue, or to a previous version to match buyers system as requested.
2. Others withhold items until all informatiom is available so user can upgrade themselves
- there are many distributors who handle matters as their local custom dictates.

Actually I don't really mind, as I get to play with the new toys first. The local distributor here is really efficient. We can even get beta/pre-production sets. E.g. some of the guys here gets to play with the A9 one and a half years before it was officially launched. Of course it was beta software and all (meaning some stuff don't work; the manual was not even ready), but we love to be the first ones outside Korea to lay our hands on the A9.

As long as Hitec clarifies the state of the items, it is fine with me.

HTS-Voice - updated

My LHS notified me to exchange my HTS-Voice for a new firmware model.

Happy to report that it is now fully operational - the unit will read out the SPC and Rx voltage even if there is no SS.

I have the same problem, bought the HTS-Voice in November from Fast Lad in UK.

But now I doubt that the HTS- Voice firmware can be updated !

I guess even the new HPP-22 software (ver 1.12, when will this software be released ???? January 2013???) will not allow a firmware update of the HTS-Voice which would mean that all "old" HTS-Voice units would have to be send back to Hitec for a firmware update.

Can anybody confirm, if this is true or not??

Anyhow it is clear that the actual HTS-Voice being on the market doesn't work competely as specified in the manual. This is a serious deficiency which Hictec has to resolve at no cost for their customers.
