No data from hedgehog in IA mode

Hello

I ordered right now "Starter IA-04-2D-Badge Set" newly after the fail to making the IA mode with "3 pcs of Beacon HW v4.9 and 1 pcs of Beacon Mini-RX".
I will try once to compare my current setup and the setup of your "Starter IA-04-2D-Badge Set" after receiving package.
BTW, I would like to receive your comment first about what is wrong with I did in the setup, if you could.
1) I already had "3 pcs of Beacon HW v4.9 and 1 pcs of Beacon Mini-RX" for other purpose.
2) I changed firmware in above device and "Modem HW 4.9" device as files in folder of "marvelmind_SW_2019_12_07/Software_ia".
3) And then, it was successed that the stationary beacon as "Beacon HW v4.9" to be shown in the map of Dashboard.
But it was only via the method that I had input the distance of pair of each betweens stationary beacons. It was not shown automatically.
(4) BTW, it was not receiving any position data from Mobile beacon ("Mini-RX").
What is wrong with me?
Could you tell me how to set for successful receiving?

Regards.

Some note.
I set that Beacon1 was 31000Hz, Beacon3 was 25000Hz and Beacon7 was 19000Hz as Ultrasonic frequency.
And, the address 5 is Mobile beacon of Mini-RX.
Also, some values (RSSI, Time from reset and so on) were receiving well.
Only position values were not receiving well.
The below image is a screen capture of Dashboard.

Hello Gona,

1) Step 1) seems to be OK. Maybe, if I had difficulties, I would go with pure 2D first and 2 beacons - to simplify the task first - and only then move to 3D

2) Seems to be OK too. But we have a newer SW release. Please, use always use latest: https://marvelmind.com/pics/marvelmind_SW.zip. And, most of all, always use the SW from the same SW pack: Beacon+Modem+Dashboard

3) Yes, in IA and regular Beacons HW v4.9, you have to enter the distances manually. If you had Super-Beacons, they would do this automatically. Or of you used NIA instead of IA, they would do this automatically too. Make sure the distances are indeed correct and the table of distances is filled in correctly, because if not, then map won't build at all or tracking results can be unpredictably wrong

4) Have you frozen the map? Before that, the system is in the map building mode

BR,
Maxim

And I also see RSSI of -19dBm. It looks like you have a modem too close to beacons. Keep the modem, at least, 1-2 meters away from the beacon. Otherwise, you are overloading the radios.
