    Elemental: the EzUhf tx can both be powered from the radio(only certain kinds) or by the barrel connect(like what im doing).

    the manual makes things easy to understand click here or paste this "http://www.immersionrc.com/manuals/EzUHFManual.pdf" in your url

    I'm getting this same issue... I bought my cable from RMRC in hopes that it would make things simple.
    http://www.readymaderc.com/store/ind...14qstpoo4u5ip4

    This is the cable I am using... But I get the same 5 tones when trying to bind. Not to mention the fact that when I boot up the uhf tx with the bind button held down, I ALWAYS get the 5 tones, first one long. I never get the single incremental tone i see on all the videos.

    I've confirmed that my firmware and frequency matches on the Tx and Rx

    Any help would be great.. thanks!

    Anyone?




    Or at least does anyone know where I can find a guide that describes the beeps and what they mean?
    Thanks

    Have you seen the beep tones described on pg 20 of the manual? Long and 4 shorts says no ppm, but I'm not sure exactly when things are going bad for you.

    Code:
    Problem: Tx beeps continuously, even when not in Bind mode
    Beep codes can identify the source of the problem. Combinations of long, and short 
    beeps will be emitted, and can be identified using the following table.
    _ .       Transmitter internal error, return for service (Xtal)
    _ . .     Transmitter internal error, return for service (TxOvfl)
    _ . . .   Detected PCM as opposed to PPM, change R/C Tx Mode to PPM
    _ . . . . PPM not detected at power-up (Tx connected to HT input?)
    . . .     PPM Timeout, connection problem between R/C Tx and EzUHF
    Common problems are _ . . . which indicates that the R/C Tx is in PCM mode, instead of PPM. 
    The EzUHF (and all other equivalent systems) require PPM as input, and not PCM.

    Thanks hucker.. I'll dig a little deeper.
    I hate the thought of this RMRC cable being wrongly wired.
    I was hoping to avoid having to make one of my own in the first place. ah well.

    On my radio (hitec) I can tell it to output several different encoding schemes, you must set PPM (not PCM) or else the ezuhf won't know what to do. I have two PPM options (Positive and negative) and I think the both work, it is currently set to negative.

    Ok.. after a bit of research most vids and threads simply say "just use your multimeter to figure out which wire is ppm and which is gnd"
    Now that sounds super simple... and maybe i'm just way over my head getting into this hobby (I've learned to solder, and I bought a nice digi multimeter.. but i'm still pretty green on electronics as a whole) I feel like we need an "electronics for dummies" thread. haha

    I studied to find out how to figure out polarity using a multimeter but that was on a powered circuit, to figure out positive from negative.
    Since i'm powering my UHFtx from an independent lipo, all i need to figure out is which wire is GND and which is ppm. How do I do that?

    Do I plug my cut svhs cable into my UHFtx, power it up and poke my multimeter termals about? lol. Seriously i'm at a loss.... like I said, this might be the wrong hobby for me, but everyone needs to learn somewhere.. i'm learning out of necessity here.
    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks.
