There is something I noticed about the Godox Xt32 trigger that wasn't there with the X1 trigger. The power adjustments and test fire button only works if the trigger is mounted to the hotshoe of the camera body. This really isn't an issue since the trigger will always be mounted while taking photos, but I found it a bit odd since you can control and test fire the flashes with the X1 trigger while it's not mounted to the camera body. Anyone know anything about this?

Put fresh batteries in your XT32 and flash units. Make sure you have plenty of distance (at least 3-4 feet) between the XT32 and the flash units.

Which flash units are you using and what is their current firmware? Firmware in the XT32?

Tried it on the TT600 speedlight. Both sets of eneloop batteries used were fresh off the charger so no issues there. Haven't checked if there is a newer firmware yet though. Does your xt32 controls work disconnected from the hotshoe?

Looks like there aren't any firmware update options for the XT32 nor the TT600.

I use XT32 and FP R2T32's "off camera" for metering and adjusting flash power with Godox AD360II's, CL 360X, AD600B's, FP Xplor 600TTL, V860II, FP Zoom Li-ion R2 TTL, TT685's, and FP eVOLV200 R2's with no issues other than having a low battery one time in an Xplor600 where it would not trigger remotely.

I have some TT600's somewhere that I'll try to locate and test. Then I'll edit this post with my findings unless you or someone else figures something out in the interim.

EDIT: Amazingly found and tested 2 TT600's and had no issue with triggering and adjusting flash power with both an XT32 and FP R2T32 "off camera". Make sure that the TT600 is in Radio Slave configuration with the red light blinking on the front of the flash. Make sure you have the XT32 and TT600 on the same channel and the proper Group set when adjusting flash power.

If you have time to test the TT600 plus XT32 combo, that will be much appreciated. Unfortunately I don't have any other Godox brand lights on hand to test. Thanks!
