Setup in advance of a shoot issue
I have purchased 5 V6 units, my intention is 4 will be RX slaves and 1 will be the TX unit, I have placed labels on each unit so that my assistants know which units are for what purpose. I have also placed a label on each unit that shows groups A/B are for Nikon SB700 and groups C/D are for Canon Yongnuo 568 units.
My goal is to pre-configure the settings but what I'm finding is that I cannot save A/B as Nikon and C/D as Canon Yongnuo, the V6 only seems to capture the settings from the current group. Is this the correct mode of operation? Am I required to configure the V6 each time I attempt to use it and what strobe it's connected to or is there a way to save the settings in each group as I'm attempting to do.
Also when I do this for the TX unit, I'm finding that when I select a Nikon group (A or B) and scroll to the choose profile, it defaults to the last configured setup which in this case was the C/D group or Canon, if I select Group A/B change it to a Nikon SB700 profile then select group C or D it still shows Nikon despite it having been setup to Canon Yongnuo moments before.
I'm concerned that this is causing some of the mis-match settings during shoots where 1 strobe is not firing at the same intensity as the other.
Update, one other issue I've found, when I connect a Nikon SB700 to the V6 and turn on the V6 the flash will fire telling me it's set to operate. When I do the same with the Yongnuo the flash does not fire, the display does reflect all the power changes from the remote but it's odd that it doesn't acknowledge that the V6 is in control. In fact I can turn off the Nikon flash and the V6 keeps it live, I do this with the Yongnuo and it actually powers off.
Can you please confirm this behavior.
