    Default XTL5000 O5 head > W3

    Hello all, looking to go backwards with a control head. I currently am running an XTL5000 with an O5 remote head setup. The radio was originally a W7 that I converted a few years back. I'm looking (due to a vehicle swap for a short time)convert the radio back to a W series but this time to a W3 control head. In the CPS I'm getting an error about hardware support, was/is there a different W series Between the others?

    I have a:

    HLN6883
    with the flex cable.

    Any and all help would be great, don't want to fire a codeplug in that will potentially brick it.


    Thanks

    Adam

    The W3 TIB is different than that used on other w series heads.

    Unhappy

    Thanks to both for te replies. I already have the W3 head so I figured it was a cheaper price to spend changing the TIB. Hopefully this setup is temp as I'm deeply searching to replace the wife's car that I ended up with when we bought the mini van......
