Saga continues

I have bound my XM+ receiver to my Horus X12S transmitter. When I plug it into the #1 receiver port of my X24, it looses bind. The X24 led flashes red slowly, and the led on the receiver flashes red as well, meaning it isn't bound. Any idea what I'm doing wrong? The "mode" screen says that Rec.#1 is selected, and that is where I've plugged in the receiver. The "Mode" is Sbus, and I think that is correct as well.

It sounds like your receiver is not outputting SBUS protocol. Is there a certain port on the receiver that you are suppose to be using for SBUS output? I don't believe that any 2.4GHz system can actually lose their binding information - unless the port you are using is the wrong one and that port is the binding port. I don't know anything about the FrSky receivers, so I am not sure how they work.

Thanks for response Jim

Jim, the receiver is outputting Sbus before it is plugged into the RX1 port of the X24. After I bind the receiver, I attach a Sbus decoder and a couple servos on the decoder outputs, and they both work fine to inputs from the appropriate transmitter channels. As soon as I connect the receiver to the X24 and turn on the power, the receiver looses bind.
You may recall, I sent this set of equipment to you this past Summer. You worked with it and returned it to me working wonderfully a week or so later. You stated the little XM+ receiver worked great, in fact better than the larger X8RS receiver that I included in the shipment. After getting the system back from you, I installed it all in the airplane and used it to setup most of the several servos relative to servo direction. All worked fine. I then left the airplane for a couple months while on an extended vacation. when I got home and started to work on the airplane again, the receiver had lost bind, and I've been messing with it for a few weeks off and on to no avail.

STOP THE PRESSES, all is well

Jim, I found my current problem, and all is now OK. I finally found that only receiver #4 was on, and I had my receiver plugged into #1. All now seems to be working.

Sorry for the bother,

Ha! Ok, that makes sense! Glad you got it figured out!
