NEW PURCHASE LAST NIGHT
Well made the jump last night and got me the DX9 black edition. I have had the 6i for a few years but the 9 seems to have all of the latest tech in it. I am going to sit down and go over the manual this afternoon.
Any heads up from you guys or is every thing OK with this set. I turned it on last night just to see the screen but got no talking to me. Must have to turn it on some how?

You'll need to turn on that function. 1st thing I would do is register the radio on the Spektrum website and update it.

Good luck with manual. Most features need to be enabled.

ie:
flight modes
throttle hold
timers
switch warnings
depending on FBL, channel mapping/assignment
to name a few.

Best of luck. Chime in if you're stuck.

Congrats on purchase.

+1 on registering and updating to latest Airware (AW).One big thing to remember is if you have a problem with any operation that involves the use of the SD card especially updates the first thing to do is try a different card.
When registering make sure you go to System Setup/System Settings/Next/Next to get to serial number screen and use the Export button to create an .xml file on the SD card labeled My_DX9. Copy/paste the serial number from there to the registration page to avoid errors.
Then use the link on the update page to get the most recent soundfile and load that as well.

Definitely ask more questions here if you get stuck.There is a fairly steep curve to understanding how it all works at first.

Thanks for the tips guys . Sounds like the first thig to do is register it and then update it.

aerocal;
Is there a problem with the supplied SD card, because if there is I can always swap it out for another that I have laying around.

Also, do I have to format that SD card?

Some people have had problems with the included SD card (I did not).

I think some have eliminated the problem by formatting the card, but you should not have to...

I wouldn't worry about it unless you have a problem with it during the update.

aerocal is the expert here, so I hope he will correct me if I'm wrong.

I think its more of a deal with SD cards in general.Some just dont seem to want to function correctly in DX radios.There doesnt seem to be any rhyme or reason to it.If you do format set it for FAT filesystem.Reformat didnt work for me.If they dont want to work they just wont.
I had off and on trouble with a few cards.Both the ones supplied with radios and a couple SanDisk 2G(all Class2). I found a couple Class6 SDHC micros from an old phone and been using them in an adapter without a hitch for over a year now.

What aerocal said but it's not just DX radios. This is a mystery. My guess is that the cards are lying about their capabilities OR the transmitters are not reading the card setup/format data. It's very annoying.

OK I got the registration done but had to put the serial number on the SD and then down load it to the site. Major pain in the ass. Took about an hour and a half trying it manually , and finally put it on the SD. I now have version 1.06.
Tried to update the sound but it must already have the most recent update because it would go to "BACK" instantly. Does that sound like it was already updated?

The AW(airware) should be 1.06
You can confirm the version of AW and the voicefile(VOX) by highlighting and clicking on the version displayed at the ottom for the serial number screen. IIRC the VOX should start with 15 followed by other numbers and letters.
It likely had the current soundfile loaded from factory.

And when you do update the soundfile it can take alot longer than you might expect. 2 or 3 or 4 minutes.Maybe even a little more.
When you initiate Sound Update it says Standby and then goes through 2 screens with a progress bar. The first progress clears it and then the second loads the new one. The first is kinda fast and the second (actual loading) takes quite a bit longer.If you see the little sideways barberpole on the bottom going around it is still working.
When Sound update is finished it returns to the SD menu.
