Xbee Shield doesn't work

I just bought an Xbee shield and it has series 2 Xbee. It won’t talk to my series one Xbee. I also can not change the channel on the series 2, it is stuck on channel 0. The series 1 will not go on channel 0. What am I doing wrong?

Also, if I put a series 1 Xbee on the shield, the led blinks instead of staying on solid. I can not find any documentation that tells what the led translates to. Is there any documentation out there that will help me?

rduino playground and the maxstream site. V1 and V2 chips can talk but they do not without you setting them up.

I have everything setup so they will talk except for the channel. V2 won’t go off channel 0.
