New Beta firmware for Noxon2, iRadio and others. 6898

Big jump in numbers, huge changelog! ... date/Beta/ ... ates/Beta/

NOTE: If you are going from the last stable version (6392), then you have to update the bootloader first, THEN the main firmware. It does tell you this in the readme file, but only in German :-)

Obviously, this is BETA firmware, and only for the brave, use at your own risk.

VERY impressed with the new firmware so far, it's fixed many annoying issues with the Noxon2, including the Clock stopping in Standby, and the first second or so of streamed audio being truncated, there are also some new features, like onboard play history, equaliser presets, a much more comprehensive web interface, and in general better stability.

I updated both my Noxon2 units this evening, and so far very pleased. Seeing as the catalyst for the new firmare, is their new product, the iRadio Cube, and the firmware appears to be shared between the iRadio, the Noxon2, and the iRadio Cube, it seems like there may be future updates to following :-)

I've tried the beta upgrade for the iRadio, but although it appears to install, the firmware remains

I'm using the latest loader. The result is the same via winXP and Vista.

Any ideas?

Hi there..

Is there anybody that can explain me how to configure wireless settings with new firmware?
Starting configuration manager setup on newly upgraded Noxon 2 is not giving any possibility for wirelles settings - only Ethernet.
Changing settings in profile manager via web interface is not giving any success - what to do?

Kind regards from DK...
