2008 Honda CRV and new TPMS ID Issue

Ok here is my issue. I have a 2008 Honda CRV with a summer and winter sets of tires and each have TPMS. I’ve using the Ateq VT-30 to read the TPMS ID and then using the Ateq Quickset to write to the Honda’s PCM. I’ve been using my Quickset on three cars since 2008 without an issue.

Last week I bought an almost new set of summer tires from a 2012 CRV (OEM alloy mags, tires and OEM TPMS) on Kijiji because I wasn’t sure how long I was going to keep this CRV. I’m able to read all the TPMS IDs from this new set (TMPS batteries are good) but I keep getting error writing to the PCM with my Quickset. I've also used my Autel Maxipad to read and confirm the TPMS ID.

Writing to the PCM with my old set of CRV TPMS ID are fine but every time I try to write the new sets in, I get an error from my Quickset and the "TPMS" icon is on on my dashboard.
The Quickset is on the most recent OBD database (QR1-01). So does Honda CRV PCM only accept certain TPMS ID range? Or only from certain TPMS company. Or does anybody here have a possible resolution to this problem.

Possibly the TPMS transmission frequency. I know for my Honda it changed somewhere between 2008 &2012.
2008 = 315 Mhz, the 2012 might be 433 Mhz

If you are lucky the new TPMS might be frequency selectable.

Thanks for the input. The Frequencyof the 2012 TPMS is still 315MHz. The problem is not reading the sensor ID but rather to write the 2012 TPMS ID to the 2008 CRV's pcm with the Quickset which is connect to the cars OBD port.

OK. The routine for my 08 Honda is to just swap the tires over and drive a short distance @ > 40 km.
I read somewhere about dropping the tire pressures if there were problems, let the car register low pressure, then reinflate to spec.
