    DM220T Host Firmware Update 202D

    This update will only update the Host Firmware, it will not update the DVB-T FPGA core.

    Before Upgrading Download the attached compressed ZIP file and extract this to a location on your PC, for example C:\DM220T
    Then follow the instructions below.


    DM220T HOST FIRMWARE UPDATE INSTRUCTIONS V0.1
    ===================================

    1. Connect DM220 hardware to USB, power up and allow time to enumerate on your PC.

    2. Check WINDOWS device manager and IDENTIFY the COM port assigned to the DM220 and write it down.

    3. Right click the file you wish to use for the update
    Example DM220_HOST_xxxx.BAT and edit it (Notepad), the xxxx will be the firmware version
    You will see the following line
    DM220_HOST_UG 5 0 DM220_FW_202D.hex GOGOGO
    You need to change the COM port number to the one you are using
    DM220_HOST_UG X 0 DM220_FW_202D.hex GOGOGO // where X is the COM port number
    Example for COM 5: DM220_HOST_UG 5 0 DM220_FW_202D.hex GOGOGO
    Example for COM 9: DM220_HOST_UG 9 0 DM220_FW_202D.hex GOGOGO
    Example for COM 10: DM220_HOST_UG 10 0 DM220_FW_202D.hex GOGOGO
    The format for the command line is
    DM220_HOST_UG [COM PORT NUMBER] [0] [FIRMWARE FILE NAME] [GOGOGO]
    Once you have edited the file please save and exit.

    4. Leave the USB cable connected but disconnect the DM220 power lead.
    Double click the batch file to run and you should see this in a window (if you have the correct com port)
