AVR250 Firmware Update - Settings Preserved?

Hi,

When my AVR250 was delivered the first thing I did was update the firmware because there were some new features implemented that I needed.

I now find myself wanting to upgrade the firmware again, but just want to make sure my settings will be preserved after the upgrade. I have everything setup beautifully and don't want to loose them. If the settings are not preserved is there a way to back them up them via the serial connection or do I need to get a pen a paper?

Hi Martin,

Do you mean firmware or software upgrade? When I did my software upgrade on my AVR300 three times it remembered all my settings every time. I haven't done a firmware upgrade yet.

Cheers

The DSP in the AVR250 is not upgradable so referring to the Arcam documentation they call what I am referring to as a Software upgrade. So for clarity, what I am asking is...

Will my settings be preserved after I upgrade the software on my AVR250?

The reason I am asking the question is that an AVR300 owner reported loosing their settings when they did an upgrade. See this thread...

The settings on your AVR250 should remain after updating the software. It is only the DSP update which will lose any settings made, and the DSP on the AVR250 cannot be updated.

Hi Crustyloafer,

I am interested in getting the AVR250/AVR300. Can the DSP be upgraded on the AVR300? What sort of updates on the DSP will one normally do?

Thanks,

Vincent

I don't know, we'll need to wait until Arcam bring out further updates. The last DSP update that was made available 1.10 to 1.12 made, to me, quite noticeable improvements in sound quality.
