Hello Geoff.

Are you ever able to change any setting on your RX 105 with your Prog4, no matter if it was with CoolTerm or DT-Programmer?
If yes, the cable and hardware should be ok and the issue most likely is the binding between the Prog4 and the RX 105...

If not, the issue may be on the hardware side (cable, Prog4 itself, PC)...

One thing I like to mention too.
If you've connected the Prog4 to your PC via an USB Hub then please try to connect it directly to one the PC's own USB Ports.
It happens really often that the Prog4 did not work properly if you connect it to an USB-Hub...

Hello Tom.

I think I've found a nice way to incorporate the programming protocol as you suggested.
It even is localized.

The User sets a name (e.g. the Model type or whatever it should be),
and DT-Programmer writes all programming steps into a protocol file with the given name.
If no name is specified a default name "protocol" is used.

In this file all programming steps are logged with date, name and value.
This file will stay "forever" and new programming steps are added at the end.
The selected firmware also is logged.
And the user can select, if he wants the protocol or not.
And he can also start a new protocol file by entering a new name.

I was busy developing this and now I have it build in for V611 firmware.
The other firmware versions I still need to add.

But I can send you a test-build with only V611 protocol working,
so you can see if it is as you wanted it...

Everything else is working as before, so it should be no big issue to test it...

Hi.

Here is the link to the new version, where the protocol option is included.

It is working with any firmware but the protocol only is complete with V611 up to now...

Hello.

Now the protocol is completely included.





You can set a name to use for the protocol in the top right area above the “connect” button.
This can be whatever you like, but it would be best to choose a meaningful name,
e.g. the name and type of the model and the RX.
If you don’t set a name, the protocol will be named “protocol.txt”.

A protocol file will be generated on first programming step in a sub- directory of the installation folder named “RX”. 
The protocol files are plain text files and can be viewed with Notepad or any other text viewer/editor.

You also can opt to not generate a protocol at all,
e.g. if you are programming other peoples RX or similar.

Once a protocol file is generated, all future changes will be written at the end of the existing file,
if you choose the same file name as before.
 
In a later version, DT-Programmer will include a protocol manager to view and delete protocol files.
But this will take it’s time to complete.
Up to then you can manage the protocols easily with Explorer or similar tools.


Here is the direct link to the download of the new version:

DT-Programmer 1.0.3.2

Claus,

That looks really good,
and is everything I could have asked for.

Unfortunately, it looks like it will be a long time,
before I'll be able to pick up a Prog4 to try it out.

Great job!

Tom
