Falcon 4 String Smart Receiver Issue

Newbie here, this past year started to playing around.  I have a K40D-PB, and 1 Falcon 4 String Smart receiver connected to it.  I have two props, I have 1 plugged into Port 1 and the 2nd plugged into Port 2.  If I click the tester button on the receiver, both props light up correctly.  However, if I use FPP through the K40D-PB, the prop on Port1 just flickers lights on and off.  I've take the cable and unplugged directly from the board on Port 1 to Port 2, 3 or 4, and it works correctly.  So it seems like maybe something is wrong with the Port on the board, but back to my first word "Newbie", wanted to reach out and see if I have missed  something.

I do have the termination switches all up, fought with that for a couple days.  So not sure if using the receiver with those termination switches in the wrong position may have caused damage or not.

Thanks in advance for any ideas or suggestions


And you have the DIP switches set for Normal Mode?


Yes, I should have mentioned that.  After finding out I had the termination DIP switches were wrong, I double checked the mode DIP switch to make sure it was in the right position as well.  Both mode DIP switches are OFF in the down position.


A screenshot of your FPP output configuration would be helpful.


Attached is the screen shot.  This works just fine, but if I switch the data that is on Port 3, which ever object I plug into Port 1, just ends up blinking lights on and off.You cannot view this attachment.You cannot view this attachment.
