Default DCX2496 update problem

Hi everybody,

Tonight I did the most worst thing ever - I wanted to update my dcx2496 with new firmware, but it stalled in the middle of the transfer and now it won't get pass the startup message. I can't see it anymore on the setup software. Does anybody have a solution to this problem ?

Best regards

Heine

Mac,

That link doesn't seem to work for me.

Heine,

Hold down the leftmost button and turn the unit on. Then try your update procedure again. It should work.

Cheers,

Davey.

Default Still problem.

Thanks for the advice - the left button and power on seemed to power the unit up in upgrade mode. But I still have a general problem in transfer software to the unit - it detects it fine, but once I start to transfer presets or upgrade sofftware it says the connection was lost and it had stopped to transfer the file. I've tried two different computers but the result is the same. Any of you who have had this problem before ?

Heine,

The process is a bit funny. I've had it hiccup on me before. Once you've clicked the "software update service" button and selected the proper file does it start uploading and proceed for awhile before quitting?

Try using a previous version of the GUI and firmware file to see if that works. Also a different cable.

Hope that helps.

Cheers,

Davey.

Hello!

sorry for beeing a little bit o.t.
Anyone can tell me wich Converters the DCX uses?
Would a DCX be a better solution than a DSP8024 + active 2way X-over in terms of flexibility and features?

thanks a lot

I think we're talking apples and oranges -- the DSP8024 is REALLY old now! Clearly DCX is more flexible and has more features.

If you asked about DEQ2496 and active xovers, it becomes more questionable. The DEQ has a lot of processing power for EQs compared to the DCX.

Hi Davey,

The DCX acts just as you describe - I'll try what you suggest and get back.

Thanks,

Best regards

asked īcause I got a DSP8024 for 120Euros on Ebay... yes, itīs old, I know ;-) So maybe I resell it, hoping to loose no money....
Problem is that I need a 2-way XO... Does the DEQ2496 feature a XO? couldnīt find the info right know... otherwise the DCX would be the way to go for me, coming from a EMU0404 and going to GCīs.
Thanks for your answers
