I meant upgrading the board...adding more memory.

Yves,

 

The older keypad design (less memory) can only be updated to v4.19.3.    It cannot take v5.xx.

Hi George,

 

Is it possible to upgrade the old keypad version (less memory) instead of having to buy a new one?

 

Best regards,

Yves

Ted,

Please note the email that Roland just posted to this group.    In addition to what he stated, we have attempted to make the entire keypad more user-friendly.  

We are bug testing as I write this.   There is not a specific date…but very soon.   We will add features in future updates.

Regards,

George

George,

 

Two questions concerning the new v5.xx firmware update:

 

1.  Anticipated release timeline

 

2. What specific features will it incorporate?

 

I’ve read some discussions that it will correct for orthogonality errors but haven’t seen an official brief from Astro-Physics.

 

Many thanks,

 

Ted

I should add that the earliest keypads…approximately1565GTO and earlier…will not accept the v5.xx firmware, as they do not have the available memory.

Peter,

All Keypads can accept firmware version up to v4.19.3.   Version v5.xx will require a CP4 or CP5.

I fairly recently received an email announcing new keypad software. Unfortunately it appears that my keypad is too old to accept it. Can someone please redirect me to this information?
