So, any tranceivers which can use several radio channels will be okay to use?
No, if you want control from a X2T-P, it has to be the Flashpoint R2 Single Pin Transceiver I linked to in my previous post, or one of the other compatible (but more expensive) Godox/Flashpoint receivers.

Sometimes I just need a manual flash to light up the background, but I assume it should be able to reduce power down to 1/64 for instance.
If you want to remote control the power of the flash then the single pin receiver won't be the right choice. You'd have to use an X1R but you'll have to have a compatible flash then. Unlike the Cactus V6 II, for instance, the Godox receivers are not multi-brand compatible. So the particular flash models you have won't support remote power level control with Godox/Flashpoint radio triggers.

Hello. I own several Godox triggers, some are faulty, some have occasional misfires, others never had a single misfire. In summary:

FT16: never got a misfire
XT16: never
XT32C: never

XproC (unit 1): around 3% misfire rate. Also fails changing power in a similar rate.

XProC (unit 2): never

XProP: occasional/rare. Not always sure if the trigger was the problem
X2TP: same as above

My advice is to change your trigger. It seems you have a high misfire rate (50% ?).
I assume you have fresh bateries in trigger/flash, tried several channels, etc.


Regards.

Have you tried a channel scan?

Perhaps you are experiencing radio interference from a WiFi router or wireless phone.

Cleaning the contacts of the trigger and the camera's hot shoe may help as well.

Finally, make sure to use the locking mechanism of the trigger to ensure good electric contact between trigger and camera.

The XproP don't have issue in the same location ... already send it to the shop will wait for their report.

X2T-P question for those that might still be following this thread or using this transmitter.

Will the X2T-P transmit TTL to all Godox flashes regardless of the intended manufacturer (V860ii-S vs V860ii-N vs V860ii-C...)?


Thank you

Hello. I think all the v860ii support Pentax TTL. Please check this thread (https_//www.pentaxforums.com/forums/125-flashes-lighting-studio/408644-wireless-triggers-p-ttl-cababilities-2.html#post5019079). Regards.

It will, but the V860II will not understand the P-TTL signalling unless it's been firmware updated to be Pentax-compatible:
  • V860II-C: v1.7
  • V860II-N: v1.8
  • V860II-S: v1.7
  • V860II-O: v1.4
  • V860II-F: v1.2
  • TT685-C: v3.4 [no other TT685 "versions" have a P-TTL update, neither do the TT350/V350 models—only the TT350-P can do P-TTL)
  • AD200: v2.2
  • AD600 Pro: v1.3

The V1, AD400 Pro, and AD1200 Pro are P-TTL were compatible on initial release.

Related to my first post, and the issues with legacy flashes.
I noticed a new firmware version for the X2TP on Godox site (finally). I have installed the new firmware but I still get the same issues with legacy flashes, unfortunately.

I'll keep waiting...
