Hi Steve, I have 3 mcac5 controllers along with 18 mdk-c5 keypads, st2-xm tuner, dms 3.1, Sirius st2 smart tuner. I downloaded version 7 Friday and updated my system. Controllers #1 & #3 updated fine but controller #2 said this,
Error Could not display available firmware version.
Reason Failed to read file "/updates/updates.xml" from server"updates.russound"
Solution Check network connections or file name format.
I had another Mca-c5 with version 06.00 in stock ready for a job so I used that to replace my bad controller for now and programmed Version 7 to it. It worked fine.
The other two mca-c5 controllers programmed within 7-10 minutes without any issues so I know it's not my network or cables causing the issue.
Also, 3 of the mdk-c5 failed to update. Two of them have the power button flashing and the other keypad is all lit up but can not recycle power are doing anything with it.
Finally, after about 8 hours or so doing all firmware updates, dms 3.1 updates, swapping out bad Mca-c5 with new one and everything else I powered up the system. After a few hiccups to say the least,
I had everything up and running; Pandora, Siriusxm, tunein, vtuner, media server etc. The problem is with the new firmware update on the DMS 3.1 and with SiriusXm radio playing is when you have 3 SiriusXm streams on they go to the "STOPPED MODE". The streams will only play for around 15-20 minutes before going to stopped mode. I know the problem is not my DMS 3.1 because it was working fine before I did the update. I also installed another DMS 3.1 to troubleshoot the problem and the DMS 3.1 with the older version worked perfect, never once went to "stopped" mode with all 3 streams playing. I reinstalled the DMS 3.1 with the new version 5.00 and after 5-10 minutes it went to the infamous "stopped" mode. Let me know your thoughts on these issues.
In closing the Release 7 updates is great... Thanks Ron.
