I have the timer programmed to count down on all my models but a few times now it has counted up instead. Does anyone know what would cause this on a dx6i?

A bug.
IIRC you need to make sure you stop and reset the timer before powercycling the Tx.If it goes past time and starts counting up and you simply shut the Tx off and then turn it back on the timer will be in countup mode.
Sorry I havent used my DX6i enough to be exactly sure that is exactly how it works.You will have to experiment or do a couple searches for DX6i timer bug.It is well known.You will learn to work around it.

I looked around a little more and I see that this is a known issue. I will just have to watch it for next time. Soon enough I will be replacing it with a DX8 anyways.

I had the same happen with my JR DSX-11. Couldn't figure out why at first. The timer program was set for count-down...

Then I noticed that I had throttle hold activated. Switched it off, powered up the tranny again, and all was the way it was supposed to be.

The only positive I see is more flight time.

That is also true.Even if it is in countdown once it reaches zero it will then countup.
