    Sounds likely that your negs are on the contrasty side. I develop TXT 320 in a jobo on a beseler motor base in Pyrocat MC 1+1+100 10 minutes 68C and those negatives are good for Pt/Pd printing and a grade 1 silver paper. Great combo by the way.

    In regards to the Tri-X 400, since you're in a jobo tank, you want to probably shorten this time appropriately, but with Pyrocat-HD 1+1+100, I've developed at 70*F, 8 minutes, after exposing the film somewhere around EI 160-200 to avoid a flat toe. Prints really well on grade 2 papers.
    But of course the time depends on how the light is. My latest batch was in very bright sunlight, but I changed the agitation instead to every three minutes instead of every minute. That really helps hold the highlights back.
    And I see a lot of stain on Tri-X film too, but don't judge until you print them.
