You might wanna take a look at the RS-232 wiring too, due to some reasons the manufacturer has re-wired the port.

I came across this when I was trying to do the same with my Truman 7000, I will check and let you know how the wiring was done, but, cannot guarantee that the wiring will be the same.

Cheers!

Hi,

I've made an upgrade on my TM150 ultra without any problem with the steps here below:

1 Open the loader and the last version software
2 Switch the receiver off
3 Launch the download with the loader
4 Switch on the receiver (normally the process will start)

Regards,

thank you blackhawk for advice,
many thanks titmf, it worked as you said

i have only one problem,
when i tried to take an image of my current channels using
the channel editor program - i downloaded my software from www.tmsatsw.com - it failed
and i had to research for the channels and arrange them again

after update i tried to take an image of the new channel list
it worked , but when i open the file with the channel editor, it
displays strange characters, and the channels aren't shown

does anyone have any idea about that??

thanks;

Hi,

To be honnest, I've no idea for your Image problem. Maybe someone else. The image is maybe not compatible between 2 different software version ?
