HELP! - Integrating SB-910 with Godox X1 system


Hi all,

A while back, I jumped head first into the Godox flash system, selling my collection of SB-900s and 700s in favor of an AD600 and 3 AD200s. Great setup, and I can't say enough good things about it.

Last week, however, I decided that it would be convenient to retain one Nikon speedlight, a) for (rare) on-camera use, and b) to give me the ability to build 5-strobe lighting setups, so I bought a (used) SB-910 and a couple of the X1-R(N) receivers, which, I gather, should allow me to integrate the SB into the X1 triggering system.

However… I can't seem to make any power adjustments to the SB. Hitting the test button, or taking a photo does trigger the flash, but it seems to be fixed on around 1/128 power.

I've tried with both X1-T and XT-32 triggers. I've tried changing the turn-on order of the flash, trigger and receiver. I've tried the flash in TTL, M, remote and master modes, all with no joy. All the Godox gear has the latest firmware (including the X1-Rs, on v18, which supposedly "solves the compatible problem of using SB910 or SB5000"). Also, from what I can tell, the SB-910 works as it should when not connected to the Godox trigger.

All very frustrating, I'm wondering if anyone out there in the interwebs has a similar setup that is working as it should? Any other suggestions are also appreciated.

Thanks!
