    Skylark Trace not working on Firmware 2.9

    Just got a brand new Trace from RMRC and got it wired up last night. Connected it to the PC and updated the firmware to the 2.9 found on this page:
    I have video, but no OSD shows up. Please help.

    You may download a wrong firmware for Trace.

    If you download a Tiny OSD firmware for Trace, this problem will be to occur.

    Please check if the OSD can connect with Skylark software.
    If so, please try update the Trace firmware for your OSD again.

    I am having the same problem, and I believe I did use the tiny OSD firmware on my Trace OSD, What can I do at this point? I can not get it to connect to the software anymore?

    Hi guys,
    I had ordered and received the skylark trace and installed it yesterday on my qx350. It was great until I updated the firmware to the 2.9 version this evening. It went through the install perfectly and said it had installed 52 packets and the red LED light on the board went out. I hit the disconnect button and reinstalled it to the quad......then.. I got nothing... well the gps lights up but the main board LED lights don't light up. No nothing. Just a black screen in my Fatshark goggles (yes i remembered to remove the lens cover for the When I remove the OSD and plug the camera directly in the transmitter I get video but with the ODS hooked up..I get nothing.
    So removed it from the quad and hooked it back up to the PC. It recognizes the usb and says its connected but no LED like when I first hooked it up. It doesn't do anything when I tried to update the firmware again or hit the read buttons...still no response.
    I even hit the reset button thinking that might help.... the LED will try to illuminate as you release the button for a micro second but has no effect. So I think the firmware upgrade did something to lock it up? Have you had this issue reported before and were able to fix it?
    Please help if you can.
    Thank you,
