1. Check what version of firmware your units are currently using
The Current firmware running on the units can be found on the On Screen Display of the receiver marked by item 5 in the image below. If its not the same version as latest as shown at the top right of this page then continue with the remaining steps.
2. Download the upgrade file
The latest upgrade file can be found on the right hand side of this page
3. Extract the zip file
Locate the downloaded file and extract the zip file to give the upgrade .usb file
4. Copy the .usb file on to the USB stick
Make sure the copy completes by ejecting/un-mounting the USB stick.
5. Remove power from the unit
6.Insert the USB stick with the upgrade file on it in to the unit
7. Reconnect the power supply to start the upgrade
The Power Indicator LED will turn green soon after power is applied. The Power Indicator LED will then change to an amber colour after about 9 seconds indicating that the upgrade is in progress.
8. Wait for the upgrade to complete
The upgrade will take ~30seconds and once complete the Power Indicator LED will return to a green colour and the Wireless LED will start to flash Blue indicating it is safe to remove the USB stick.
9. Upgrade all units
Repeat steps 1 - 6 for all units.
10. Confirm that the upgrade has been successful
Check that the software revisions for both the transmitter and receiver are displayed correctly on the On Screen Display of the receiver
