Ok, one last hail-mary. Is the firmware in all your Godox gear up-to-date?

On both the XPro and the AD200, the MENU button takes you to the custom functions, and the currently loaded version of the firmware should be displayed.

The AD200's current firmware is v2.2; v2.0 is the minimum for MFT TTL/HSS compatibility.

The AD200 Pro's current/initial firmware version is v1.1.

The XPro-O's current firmware version is v1.3.

Thanks for the suggestion. My versions are 2.0 for the flash and 1.0 for the trigger. Is it worth upgrading as it seems a bit of an involved process to do it as I don't have a Windows PC.

I do all my firmware upgrades on a Macbook Pro, but I have a Bootcamp partition with Windows 10 on it.

Honestly, I think the AD200 being at v2.0 is the key upgrade, and if you already have that, then it's more likely the camera's at fault.
