    Beo 5 Firmware 1.41e with CT 3.00

    I broke the screen on my "old" Beo 5. The new one I received has firmware version 1.41e.

    Is it correct that I cannot load my existing config file onto this Beo 5 using CT 3.00? I get the dreaded config mismatch error.

    If yes, is there a way to override this so the CT reinstalls firmware 1.41a. I had no problems with this firmware and do not want to hunt around for a CT upgrade.

    Thank you very much

    I found out myself.

    I created a backup of the file Beo5CT.exe.config and edited all lines that were referring to the firmware version to a non-existent value. 

    old entry: <add key="Beo5RevD.bin" value="1.41a" />
    old entry: <add key="Beo5RevD.bin" value="1.47a" />

    I then downloaded the configuration to the Beo 5 - as the version of the firmware in the config file was higher than the one residing on the Beo 5, it copied the files to the Beo 5 without complaining.

    After that, the Beo 5 did no longer work. Instead, it showed on its display that the configuration was invalid.

    I then modified the entries back to the original firmware version and copied the configuration again. This time, the older firmware version 1.41a was written to the Beo 5, and everything works fine.

    I find it very satisfying to solve problems, so resolving your own problems is even better.

    Well done and is likely to be useful to other members.
