Firmware update fail. Help
« on: February 13, 2023, 04:10:56 pm »
Hello, years ago I bought a RDS Pira 32 encoder (version without battery) that works until today. After several years without using it I tried without result to update the firmware to version 1.6 since it has version 1.4 . I used the "fwup" updater and did the procedure, led 1 lights up but after a few moments the message "update failed at 300 bytes. Connection lost. Try again". How can I perform the update correctly?

We've stopped producing such model maybe 18 years ago, at that time the firmware version was 1.2.
Anyway, it still accepts latest firmware. The unit uses old RS-232 interface so check the cable wiring or try another USB to RS-232 adapter or another PC.
Click on the Start! button and then connect power to the RDS encoder.
