    Default E682 software update?

    Wondering if anyone can help me update my E682 controller? I use this for my megatree and it worked correctly last year. This year I hooked everything up and the user interface is missing information, which I think is messing up my lights. If I have a picture of frosty it looks like Picasso painted it, or if each strand is supposed to be one color in the sequence, one color might start in a different strand. For some reason Iím having a hard time wrapping my head around how to update the firmware, so Iíd like to know is there any easy way to reboot with out updating anything. Also, I have it hooked up to a pi, so Iím hoping something can be done wirelessly. Attached is a picture of what I see when I type in the ip. Thank you and have a happy thanksgiving!

    Iím pretty sure you need a ďprop plugĒ to update from that version. This is a serial based flashing adapter you connect directly to the board and to a PC and use the propellor software to flash the board.

    do you really need to update the firmware or just define the data correctly?

    His output config page clearly shows he needs to either re-flash the same firmware or upgrade it .

    That page in his photo is near MicroSoft quality . lmao
