I just updated the firmware on two TSU 7000s this morning. The first one seems to be fine, the second one on the other hand. I seem to have lost control of a Pioneer Elite DVD changer(I forget the model #, but it is a new product). I tryed relearning the codes several time at various distances and in complete darkeness. The signal is going through an IR repeater system, but the OEM works fine.

Here are a couple of samples on the leaned code, does anybody see anything wrong with these??

I have not tryed the update with any other P.E. products. Just wondering if anyone else has run into any issues like this. Fortunately I taught the client to use their B&K keypads to control the DVD player so it should not be an issue for them. It will still bug the hell out of me until I get it to work. Plus the fact my boss like to use Elite products, I am not a huge fan, but it could be worse.

Try this for subset. It's a "subset" of the code you posted above. Make the same type of edits to your other codes and see if they work. This is called "cleaning up" a code.

Lyndel,

Thanks for the advice, how did you go about cleaning up the code??

I'll give it shot next time I am at the project.

bump,

So far my only dilema with the 7000 update. I have not returned to the job to test out the about suggestions.

Roddy,

I basically looked for the lead-out (the large hexadecimal number) and trimmed the sequence there and adjusted the non-repeat and repeat counts accordingly.

If you want more information about the IR format, there's a document in the Pronto Files section under User Documentation that I believe is written by Barry Shaw that explains the 0000 IR format. Be forewarned that you should be familiar with binary and hexadecimal number systems to fully understand what's going on.

I am currently using the firmware upgrade with marginal success.

I’ve got two TSU7000s with a huge pcf on it and it seems to be working great. But some of the newer clients are reporting “dead” Prontos with the upgrade installed. These pcfs are very small in comparison, simple and straightforward. It has happened twice in front of a customer but a second clean zap of the firmware seems to be holding.

Flashing the firmware seems to work fine but when I update the Pronto often it seems to lock-up. One of my last practices is to clean zap the firmware when my program is finalized and then download the new pcf.

The new version of the PPE is incredible. It has solved most of my major gripes (bombs and corrupt files) and now I am able to open, once considered corrupt, files and continue programming.

Lydel,

Thanks for the explanation. I took plenty of classes explaining the hex, binary and octal number systems. Now I have a practical use to actually try and remember what the hell I learned.

Just bought a TSU7000, downloaded the manual, bought the program guide. I've
downloaded the ProntoProEditNG v 1.01.15 & the Pronto firmware update v1.6.9 from the "files" page. I'm going to do alot of reading both in the books and the posts but simple question:

1) When I receive my TSU7000 how can I check what version of firmware is loaded ?
2) How do you upgrade the firmware from the zip file I downloaded V1.6.9 ?
{v3.3.4 Firmware update program for the color ProntoPro NG TSU7000. LCD brightness can now be adjusted by holding [Light] and using the [Page Up] and [Page Down] keys. Fixes hangs while in sleep mode; fixes hangs if buttons were pressed while entering sleep mode; improves minimum IR transmit time; fixes incorrect multi-line label sizing; forces RF transmission for RF configured devicess; improves stability of battery reporting.}
3) Lastly any threads URLs you can point me to on programming does & dont's ? I bought the guide just thought there me be some threads better than others.

Thanks !

1) When I receive my TSU7000 how can I check what
version of firmware is loaded ?

Hold down the pronto icon on your home page until it goes to the tools page. Then tap settings and use your scroll buttons on the side of the remote to go the third page. Your current firmware version is the "application version".

2) How do you upgrade the firmware from the zip
file I downloaded V1.6.9 ?

If I remember correctly all you have to do is connect your remote to your computer, unzip the file you downloaded and run the excecutable.

3) Lastly any threads URLs you can point me to
on programming does & dont's ? I bought the guide
just thought there me be some threads better than
others.

Just look around and do searches. I've never used that guide myself, but everyone speaks very highly of it so I'm sure it's a good start.

Got my TSU7000 and on settings page 3 it shows TSU7000 version 1.0, Under that is:
Application Version: v3.0.51
Database: v3.52U
Boot Loader: v3.8.5

So, all I do is connect the Pronto to the PC and run the EXE from the v1.6.9 zip download off the file Forum ? The notes show tis as v3.3.4 but no mention of database or boot loader.

Thanks

Yes, do as you suggested. For future reference, you are interested in the Application Version.

You definitely need to upgrade.

If you are still reading this thread, then note that the 32Mb enabler firmware has been released...

You used your first post to revive an ancient post to tell us something that we all know???
