V6II unable to sync with one or two RF60s

Recently bought a V6II with two RF60s but I have yet to successfully use them due to sync issues between the three devices.

The V6II in TX mode, with group A and B turned on, channel one and the first RF60 in S mode, assigned as group A, channel one, second RF60 in S mode, assigned as group B, same channel, are not power adjustable from the V6II. 

When I try with just the one RF60, controlling power levels is hit and miss, sometimes it works, sometimes it loses connection; the devices are a few inches apart from each other. Making the single RF60 flash is not a problem, although I rarely get the flash icon appear on my Fuji X-Pro2, even though the V6II displays Fuji as the camera and flash system when turned on.

Using Firmware Updater V1.08, V6II is on V1.1.004, release date 5/9/2016 

Both RF60s are on V204 (release date 29/9/2016).

    If your devices are close to each other you must select the Working Range to "Short" on the TX unit.
  • Hi @fooltech, so did switching the V6 II TX to SHORT RANGE help?

    To help us better help you, always state the exact firmware version installed on your Cactus device(s), such as: "1.1.013", "FUJ.1.002", "v.103".

    For the time being, Cactus V6 (MK1) running on firmware version 2.1.001 can be triggered by a V6 II (MK2) running on Multi-brand HSS firmware (e.g. 1.1.013) and not by X-TTL firmware versions: PEN.A.001 and OLY.A.001.  No schedule has been released yet. 

    Cactus RF60X / RF60 Firmware versions A01 and A02 currently ONLY works with PEN.A.001 and OLY.A.001.  Other "A" version of X-TTL firmware will be released soon. For both Multi-brand HSS and X-TTL firmware versions (FUJ, SIG, SON), install firmware version 103 / 205 on your RF60X / RF60.

    Cactus RF60 is now an off-camera TTL flash with firmware version 205 or later!

    Metz M400 (for Fujifilm) is now supported on the Cactus V6 II (HSS and TTL).
