Flirc hardware versions

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Is there only one version of the actual flirc USB device, or are there different versions?

If there are different versions available, which is the latest and how are you able to tell which version it is?

 

There reason I am asking is that I can obtain a flirc device locally, but I am not sure if it could be an old obsolete version.

 

TIA

There have been no hardware changes, but the bootloader has changed. The oldest one had a bug. There is a small silkscreen on the device chip inside. It should say fw 3.0 or so.

 

Thanks Darryn.

Very Sincerely,

Jason

Hi Jason,

 

Thank you for the reply.

Can the issue with the bootloader be fixed with a firmware update?

No unfortunately, I have to do it manually with a fixture. Where did you find it locally?

Hi Jason,

 

I found it at www.procsum.co.za

 

How would I know if the one's that they stock suffer from the problem with the bootloader?

Is there something that can be checked physically on the device?

 

TIA

He's got the latest. He's an authorized distributor and I recently sent him new devices. Look inside the device, on the processor, you'll see a silk screened number. This tells me what version the factory flashed. 

If there are any problems, you'll be able to return it, or I'll get it replaced, don't worry. Part of fun doing this alone is that I get to make all the rules, and they are all awesome rules.

Just for information.

 

I have a Flirc with FW 2.0 on the ATMEL chip. This Flirc works like a charm.

I hope it will for long.

There are multiple versions, there is the silkscreen on the part, and the number that shows up when you open the GUI. We're talking about the one on the part.
