You need the firmware version 1.2tc or under for me unknown circumstances the mySKY will not accept any input of date or time not manually nor by GPS signal.
No, you do it at your own risk! No, I am not reponsible for any damage. The folowing description is only for Scotty and other inteligent live with advanced tecnical skills!
If the update procedure from Meade does not function (intended for residents outside the US? I dont know), then you have a problem but it is solvable. You have to obtain the firmware file firmware.bin directly from Meade (how?) or in the internet. Search the net with the phrases [Meade mysky firmware] and look for the mySKY usergroop of a very known search engine, that doesnt begin with G You will have to register, dont be afraid.
You got firmware.bin? Go to the MYSKY directory of your Meade-Updater. you should find it under a directory path like C:\Program Files\Meade\AstroWare\Updater\MYSKY (german users look for Programme instead of Program Files). Unhide hidden and system files. Move the file FIRMWARE.BIN in the MYSKY directory (yes, on your PC harddisk) to a backup directory of your choice. Copy the new FIRMWARE.BIN, that you have obtained by a helpfull hand to the MYSKY directory. Switch off your mySKY, open the slot labeled I/O and get the SD-card. Put it into your card reader and than at your PC return to the directory one level up (Updater) and click/doubleclick the icon mySKYUpdate.exe Follow the sugestions on screen for a normal upgrade.
Mount the SD-card to your mySKY, and now your brick or children and cardriver scaring dummy phaser pistol should have changed to the usefull handheld planetary, you and MEADE dreamed of.
No, you do it at your own risk! No, I am not reponsible for any damage.
Tell me, when you were successfull. Live long and prosper...
