I have V860III on my a7iv , the TTL is not working either, exposure is all over the place. i also have x2t trigger, Neither v860iii nor x2t trigger fits on the a7iv hot shoe well, possible damage the hotshoe of a7iv. do not invest on cheap godox product. you get what you paid for.

Well you're clearly using a version of the flash that is not for Sony cameras with Mi hotshoe. Hence can't work TTL for you.

The Sony Mi (multi interface) hotshoe is as old as Sony A99 camera (that is A-mount FF slt tech) . But I admit that 3rd party strobes manufacturers took their time to deliver flashes for this system. Probably Sony took also its time to share hotshoe protocols and drivers with them, too occupied selling its own expensive Sony strobes...

unfortunately,  I am using correct version. V860iii-S, X2T-S.  there are many people complain the fitting. not just me.
