Why won’t my Orange R1220XLR bind to my Orange Tx6i?

Hi. I bought the tx a while ago (current model) and use it with several models, very good. A few months ago I bought from you an Orange R1220XLR and tried to use it for the first time yesterday. Using the normal procedures, it won’t bind. It goes correctly into bind mode, connecting with the tx and the Orange light going from fast to slow as it should. However, after a few seconds instead of binding and the Orange light going solid, it simply goes dead. Immediately before that happens, a message briefly appears on the tx screen saying “operating mode is DSMX” and the binding process stops. I have tried repeatedly and it happens every time. This has not happened with any other receiver. Can you help me please, I need to get the model set up and this is preventing me from doing it.

    Try setting the mode in the TX to DSM2 and see if it binds properly then?

    No servos etc. connected - just receiver and relevant power supply.

    Thanks WTWUK, I will take a look but I thought transmitters sold in the UK could only operate on DSMX.
