Auxiliary PWM parameters not saving

I am using the Holybro x500 V2 with the Pixhawk6c, PX4, and the appropriate airframe setting in QGroundControl. I want to use two auxiliary PWM channels whether or not the quadcopter is armed. Every time the UAV is booted up, the PWM_AUX_OUT parameter is “1234”, which means I can not change the signals on the first 4 channels of the auxiliary PWM unless the UAV armed. When I change this parameter to “0” and reboot the vehicle, the parameter is still “1234”. Channels 5 and 6 do not appear to be usable at all when I assign my RC inputs to those channels instead. Help would greatly be appreciated.
