Different Firmwares
« on: March 19, 2017, 06:39:36 AM »
Hey everyone,

Can someone tell me is there a way to make different Firmwware talk to each other,

i have a number of set ups with REV H/J running 5.64,  but i also have quite a few Rev G running 5.42

I was wondering if there is a 5.64 firmware for the Rev G, because the Rev G is a different Sound Chip,

but i want to be able to use these for A Larp, but they are missing the 5.64 extras.

I put in a 5.64 Chip and replaced the ISD with the 1790 but it wouldn't turn on and the L4941 started to get really hot, if that means anything, but with the old ISD and chip it works no problems.

Thanks

You can't swap the chips as they are completely different designs.  The only way would be to swap the rev g for newer rev h or j units.  Newer firmware was never compiled for the older rev g.
