> > where is ron the EH man now? still lurking? :-) FWIW I wrote Ron asking about the upgrade last week. He wrote me right back saying he'd find out and sent me an email the next day with all the details. > > I am in the UK & would love to hear about getting this firmware >upgrade, > > even if I have to change out the chip myself. Alas it's not a chip, it's a software upgrade. Even some EH reps are calling it a "firmware upgrade" but apparenlty that's not true. (according to the engineer who is training the other techs on the upgrade anyway). > I've had a couple of email exchanges with EHX on this subject and at > the moment they're *adamant* that it has to go back to them in the US. Yes. Unfortunaltey it makes sense since it's not soldering or poping something in. Still I suppose they could have a Europeon repair site but I don't think they're that big of a company in the first place. I'm just happy they responded to criticisms and are offering the updrage period. > My current plan is to take up a friend's offer to take it to New > Sensor when he travels to NYC in February. Not a bad plan. They did say it only takes a few days to do the upgrade and they might make an exepction to that if you write and ask in advance. ___________________________________________________________________ HELP WANTED PRODUCTIONS - Http://www.HelpWantedProductions.com "Bringing you the best in Organic Electronic music since we started..."
