I have somewhat of a puzzling question. I have a Canon 60D with a Neewer / Godox 860 Speedlite. When on the hotshoe I go into menu for flash control and set all the settings like power, mode and all on the camera. However, when the flash is actually off camera. I go to the same menu and it says It cant find the flash. Still works fine as it triggers.
I was doing a product shoot today and has the speedlite on the ground lighting the product from below. I had to change power settings a couple of times and had to get down there to set it on the flash manually.
Is this just how it is, or am I missing some knowledge.

Have you talked to the radio trigger people?
You are on a Canon board asking for help with two pieces of non-Canon Equipment. We have enough trouble keeping all the Canon stuff straight! 8^)

Most, if not all, manufacturers will not guarantee that their products will work fully with third-party devices. Folks like Neweer, Yuongno, etc. try to reverse engineer the appropriate signals to send to their device, but since thay don't have access to actual Canon code they aren't always successful.
