I read this license.gen to my DG4162. It looks to work as earlier but the signal is about 1.4 dBm low at 200 MHz. Between 1 - 160 MHz signal is ok.

Is it possible to correct this by calibration?

Hi All,

I would like to update my Bootloader & Firmware, Attached is my current system
information for my DG4062.

I managed to find the necessary files to update it as the
current version is 00.01.07 and it says online that I need minimum
00.01.08 to run the current file but I can't find the instructions to Flash the bootloader or Firmware.

I'm not interested in Hacking my machine I just want to up date it to the latest version.

Could someone please send through some instruction on how to  Flash the bootloader and Firmware.

I have also attached an image of my current system information.


Kind Regards

Stuart

Hi Peter,

Thanks again for the files.
I have formatted a 2GB usb stick Fat32 and copied the 00.01.08.00.02 update file (DG4000Update.GEL) into the root directory

I have followed the instructions as per the attached pdf but it stops at point 8.
Am I using the correct file or is there a problem with my usb stick?

The utility light does flash a few times but then stops and none of the waveform lights start to flash.
What is my current firmware version it looks like 00.01.07 as per the attached image. Is that correct?
What is FPGA?

I recall that you have to wait quite a while before the new firmware is applied, I was making the mistake of assuming it wasn't working.
I'd like to make the world a better place but they won't give me the source code

I waited 7 minutes and not one of the waveform lights had come on.

Make sure the .GEL file you have in the pen has CRC32: D36150FB

I don't know if most of the LEDs blinking is more intensive in the post-v08 era...

Try formatting the USB disk again and/or use another.

I could only update my DG4062 with a 1 GB USB stick, but at that time I only had 1 and 2 GB to choose from.
Edit: In my case the buttons Mod, Utility and Store lit up when the USB stick could not be used.
