What can I say, I'm in a state of shock at the moment! After a marathon of attempts ( Thanks sharkshark for staying up helping me through this!! Hope you didn't lose too much sleep
) I FINALLY got it to update Today!! I gave it one last try and took a little of everyone's advice. Here is what worked for me;
-plugged in Keyspan USB into Computer. Set to COM2 in device Manager. SHUT DOWN computer.
-plugged Keyspan directly into RS232 of 905 ( REMOVED Screw posts on 905, thanks Pinkertp ) and taped it with electrical tape ( Thanks Joerod )
-started computer, opened Update.exe in App_Updater Folder, set Updater to COM2, speed to 9600 and checked "Log Visible"
-hold "enter" on 905 while plugging into ac outlet, "Main Update Mode" appears.
-clicked on "Main "Update" button in the Updater window and...........Holy Cow!! It started to write.......I thought I was dreaming, didn't get much sleep last night
-when writing stopped, display said "Complete" then "Clear" than went into Standby.
- unplugged the 905, removed the Keyspan, plugged the 905 back in, powered on and checked the NEW Firmware!!!!
That's as far as I got, need to set everything back up and give it a test run.
Just want to thank everyone, too many names to mention, but you know who you are!!!
