- TTL mode when working with V6 II / V6 IIs TX. Please note that not all the flash models are compatible to the POWER SYNC supports. In the <CHOOSE PROFILE> menu of the V6, a "P" icon would be shown for supported flash models. 
- Delay in seconds is now supported: In the <DELAY> menu, choose <SET SEC> to configure the delay timer from 1 to 99 seconds. 

User interface improvement: 
- Firmware version check: In the sub-menu, turn the selection dial to <FIRMWARE VERSION> to check the firmware version being installed on the V6.

  • Unfortunatly the possibility to copy learned profiles does not work. I tried to copy profiles from firmware version 1.1.009. to this version and the "receiving" unit did not "see" that the "transmitting" unit was sending profiles to it.

    This is a big problem because the only possiblility to "save" learned profiles and use them on a unit with a newer firmware is by coping the proliles from units with older firmware to units with the latest firmware.
