i cant program my AS3X receivers with my IPhone 6s and my laptop. I connect the cable, do everything it says i should do, just keeps saying no device connected. I can however program the receivers with my old third generation Ipad. tried to phone Horizon hobby but since they have closed down their UK operation you get no reply from e-mail or phone. i thought it might be a software problem, so i down loaded the latest software from the Spektrum web site which only came out in June this year and it still didn't work. My partner has an android phone and tablet would these work better

Can anyone help, has anyone had similar problems to me

David, the sequence of connection is critical. With a PC, first plug the USB cable into the laptop/pc, then plug the cable into the receiver, then power on the receiver. Any other order it won't work. You should see confirmation in the top right corner of the Spektrum programmer screen as you make each connection.

This different to the iPhone/Android sequence, this requires the lead plugging into the receiver first, then power the receiver, then connect to the phone/tablet headphone socket.

Good Luck

As i thought, didn't workangry......... a while ago when i mentioned this to one of our club members he suggested that it could be the cable that s to fault. he had heard that the early cables had some reported problems. and mine is one of the early ones and was free with my AR636. im scratching my head here.
