DVMEGA dual band firmware update

Post by KA2Y »

I have read all the other posts about 4.1.4 and am part way there.

I have downloaded and unzipped the DVMEGA_RH_V326_UNO.zip on my Mac mini desktop. Getting the necessary .hex file to my rip 3B+ is being a challenge I seem not to be able to solve.

It would help to know what your difficulty lies in...

wget with the proper URL on the R-Pi should allow a direct fetch of the file, which could then be unpacked (I'm sure there is something on R-Pi that can handle ZIP files.

sftp from Mac to R-Pi should allow transferring the unpacked file(s).

I've never bothered to update my DVMega -- it's been working fine with HR3.19 on a dual-band model.

I don't have any experience with Macs in the last 20 years, but I assume they have scp since they are now Linux based.

Try:

Code: Select all

man scp
You could also use a USB thumbdrive or any drive that plugs into USB like a CD/DVD ROM drive.
If someones previous actions are any indication of their future actions, then I predict the deletion and removal of access will happen at any moment. 7-11-2020.
