Re: Firmware Update (v29) on DM 15L using a MacBook Pro

Thanks for your response, ctrclckws. Yes, you are correct (I just checked my DM15L). I was aware of the instructions page but had not fully explored it previously. I held down the E key, then pressed and released the [ON] key. This gave me the firmware version, the configuration, and several other v...

Re: Firmware Update (v29) on DM 15L using a MacBook Pro

Thanks for your response, Bob. This answer those two questions.

I checked the configuration of my machine as you described. It actually shipped with the M1B configuration. It has version 28 installed (I think I checked this before), which is why I am trying to upgrade to version 29.

Re: Firmware Update (v29) on DM 15L using a MacBook Pro

Thanks, cdmackay. Do you have any thoughts on my other questions, which do not concern installing lpc21isp? These are as follows. Do the DM15Ls ship with the M1B variant firmware? Is there any harm in downloading the M1B variant firmware, under the assumption that more memory is better? Thanks again...

Re: Firmware Update (v29) on DM 15L using a MacBook Pro

cdmackay: I have been trying to use MacPorts (I installed XCode and then MacPorts). If we are not able to get things to work using MacPorts, I am certainly willing to try using HomeBrew, but as of now, I don’t have this installed. After doing what you noted, did you then type in the suggested comman...

Firmware Update (v29) on DM 15L using a MacBook Pro

Hello All, I just received my DM15L. I am very pleased with this calculator. I am seeking advice from other DM15L owners who also use a Mac computer. I am trying to update the firmware for the first time. I have closely followed the instructions on the SwissMicros website to update this. Please note...

Re: Another 43S poll

I voted for (b) for the following reasons (all are only my opinion): 1.) the information is much more clearly and cleanly displayed to the user; and 2.) most users will easily recognize the abbreviations in (b) but may not easily recognize the symbolic notation in (a). Thanks for asking, Walter!

Re: Benchmark Speed?

Thanks, grsbanks. I was not fully aware of this. I have seen a few other posts (not directed to me) where a recommendation was made to apply external power to the DM42, but the reason for doing this was not given. Now I understand the reason.

This is a really cool feature of the DM42!
