Okay, i just bought xtr off of a guy on rr. Got it today, installed it, have a futaba 7chp w/ square interface dongle. Fine. I fire it up, plug it in, no channels detected! Ok, find out which usb port the software assigned xtr to, ok, use that one. Still, no channels detected. Ok, pull hair out, no mo ba fub hla...
sorry about that....Can anyone help?
I looked this up and the best hardware reason I found was that the older dongles couldn't handle the impedence? Well, I believe this is a newer dongle, the blue one. It appears to be in good order. My 7chp is working, new a few months ago. Also, less than yr. old Acer 1681 1.5mHz mobile w/ ATI 9700 mobility radeon w/ 64 megs ram. I have run G3 on here with no problem, just to rule that out. I am inclined to think it is an interface or setup problem that I am overlooking or doing wrong. I don't have all the fancy knowledge some of you city folk has gots. Hep me peez.

Danks, Matt

The blue dongles also do it. There is 2 different blue ones i belive cant remeber how you tell the difference. The easiest way to fix this is to take the back of the square plug and desolder the 2 wires swap them round and solder them back up. There is also another method of doing it by taking the dongle apart and removing a resistor or something. If you do a search here or go to the XTR website you will get more info. Wire swap method worked for me very easy no problems. Failing that i belive you would be able to get reflex to swap the dongle for the newer version that will work OK.

so far found wire came unsoldered from original spot...

Thanks for the help guys. I have covered what you talked about. In taking the back cover off of the square futaba adapter, I found two wires, a white one and a brown one. The brown one is not soldered to anything. The white wire is still soldered to the upper-most left prong. There are a total of 6 prongs:

3 on top
...
... and 3 on the bottom

the first pin on the top and the last pin on the bottom from left to right are the two that do not overlap. The inner two on both rows overlap.

On the bottom row, the last two, the two on the right, are soldered together. None of the other prongs are soldered together.

Does anyone know how it should look? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks much, Matt
