Dear iPronto Users,
we have just released the new iPronto firmware 1.6.21
This new firmware is a large step forward for the iPronto in terms of stability, reliability and flexibility.
This software version went through a Beta test cycle where a broad group tested the specific improvements and stability of the firmware. Thanks to several members from this forum. The main focus of this upgrade is to bring the product to a level so that it can be used in more complex installations reliably.
To be able to offer the increased stability meant that we had to remove the quarter view in the remote under the 3rd soft button and replaced it with an additional browser window.
The main area of improvements are:
•Faster and more stable user interface
•The network settings, which now ensure a reliable and permanent network connection.
•Increased the allowable configuration file for complex files from 4mb to 6MB XML.
•The browser software was improved and now offers better error handling and the ability to use the input fields in Java applets.
The above improvements combined with the others listed on the following pages now make the iPronto an even stronger candidate for installations that require control using a larger screen and infotainment such as EPG and internet.

Please be aware that a new iProntoEdit 2.3.2 is needed to work with firmware version 1.6.21
