Hi,

can anyone tell me what changes the firmware version upgrade change brings, and is there anywhere it can be downloaded and performed at home?

Thanks
Tony

Hi Tony,

Do you know which firmware you have ?

The latest firmware gave us better stability, and the ability for the BBS controller to remember if it was connected to Harmony or the online server after a power outage.

If I remember correctly, if you have V2.7 firmware you can do the later updates yourself - I'm not near my own pc at the moment, so I would need to check up on that. I think v2.9 was the latest. Can anyone verify this for me ? If you have older firmware, then it is a return to Rob job.

As for the question you asked earlier from a well know auction site, Harmony Pro is the version that has the WMC control. I know it works with Win7 32bit, but I think there were hurdles (search on the forum) if you use Win7 64 bit. I think some members also installed it on WHS - have a search, and ask questions as necessary.

I will point out that WHS appears to be stopping development, so I don't think any new work will be carried out for it - but we'll have to ask Rob.

Cheers,

Tim

Hi Tim,

if the sticker on the bottom of the box is to be believed, the box is on v2.9, one day I'll get it plugged it to check...

Can you tell me how long the trial lasts for software install from the download section?


Thanks
Tony

Hi Tony,

The Harmony trial period is not restricted, but the trial itself does have some restrictions:

1. Limited to the number of devices that may be controlled.
2. Will not work with the BBS controller.

Since Harmony is much cheaper than when I bought it, I hope that you will not be deterred by this ! Harmony works very well with BBS switches (but not the dimmers).
