|Thread: Binding and updating|
Think I have got a bit fed up with my Taranis
I think my Taranis must have died. Just did as you suggested , it started loading some software and now all that happens is the speaker sounds like a machine gun and nothing else happens.
Andy, found path setting in "set up communications" path is now set correctly.
tried write firmware to tx. error message "new f/w not compatible with one currently installed" back again.
sorry Andy, Just downloaded dfu-util and installed.
can't find the burn prefs in companion
Done that and it reports ' directory missing"
directories on sd card are bmp, docs.firmware, models, sounds, videos, logs, eeproms
and files sadie_xp.exe and sadie.exe (probably left over when i had a pc)
Switched on taranis audio output - "switch warning" then nothing
Just thought about that
MacOs Sierra 10.12.2
Looking at the filename I had eu set.
Just done another download without eu
pressed 'write firmware to radio' - then different message came up - 'executable/opt/local/bin/dfu-util not found.
progress? where do I find this file and where should it reside?
I did change the settings in opentx prior to downloading the latest firmware last night.
I have tried it again today. The file I downloaded was called - 'open-taranis-no-heli-massstorage-mixersmon-eu-en.bin
then pressed 'write firmware to Radio' button. Same message as last night 'new f/w not compatible with one currently installed.
I'm lucky as I have recently retired.
My Tx is a Taranis.
`thank you Yes, Speak tomorrow
Taranis BootLoader - 2.0.12
companion s/w = 2.1.9
i have tried installing both eu and _en
after writing to Tx err message - new f/w not compatible with one currently installed.
I downloaded the latest companion from a link that someone gave me, saved it on the mac went into opentx , connect up my taranisto the Mac pressed the 'write firmware to radio button . The file it wrote was taranisplus-en.bin
I guess this was the wrong. file.
Hope this helps
Tale of Woe
I thought I would go the route of updating Tx then receivers.
Something has gone wrong. When I switch on the Tx I get the audio message "welcome to etc", the backlight flashes on then off and that it.
Ah well, back to the drawing board.
Sorry, but I am beginning to get confused as to what I should do.
It seems to me that I need to bite the bullet and just bring it all up to date (EU-LBT), that way its job done starting I presume with the Tx and OpenTx .
Will you still be able to help me go down this route?
If I do this, will I still be able to use all my old receivers?with the relevant updates
Thanks to Chris and Andy for your continued help.
How do I find out what firmware I have in my Tx. Am I right in thinking that this may need updating.(how can I tell)
All this talk about firmware is confusing. Am I right in thinking that there are 2 types in my Taranis, 1 for transmission and the other the user interface, and another set of firmware downloads for my receivers.
I have just tested a few of my receivers
1) 2 - X8R's appear to bind ok.
2)1- X6rR won't bind . red led just flashes.
3)1 - D8R-II Appears to bind but red led stays on.
Sorry to be a pain
I have a mixture of D, V and X receivers. Will I need to set them to EU LBT version to us them in the UK.
2) Where do I download firmware from.
3)What directory on the sd card will the f/w need to be loaded on.
4How will the receivers be upgrade/down graded
5)Does having a mixture of old and new type receivers cause problems? or are they all loaded with the same firmware.
Im sorry for so many questions but I really want to try to sort my system out.
