The download will arrive in the form of a DAT file, which is the actual firmware update file.
There is no need to extract this file.
To install this update simply place the update file in the main folder of a USB stick and do a SETUP | ADVANCED | FIRMWARE UPDATE.
You should also ensure that this is the ONLY FILE in the main folder of your USB stick.
(If you wish to archive other versions of the RMC-1 firmware on your USB stick - BE SURE TO PUT THEM IN A SUB FOLDER.)
AFTER THIS FIRMWARE UPDATE IS PERFORMED WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU RESET ALL THE HDMI DEVICES YOU HAVE CONNECTED TO THE RMC-1.
TO DO THIS YOU MUST PHYSICALLY UNPLUG THE AC POWER ON THE RMC-1, YOUR TV, AND ANY OTHER HDMI DEVICES YOU HAVE CONNECTED TO YOUR RMC-1.
Everything must be unplugged AT THE SAME TIME for at least ten seconds.
This will ensure that all of your devices go through a full reboot.
(We DO NOT REQUIRE this but, if you have ANY problems, then you should do it.)
SOME RMC-1 USAGE NOTES:
We have become aware that many of the problems people have been experiencing are due to compatibility issues between modern HDMI 2.0 devices and older HDMI 1.4b devices.
(Even though HDMI 2.0 is claimed to be backwards compatible with older devices - some people experience issues when connecting certain older devices to HDMI 2.0 inputs on the RMC-1 and other devices.)
YOU CAN CONFIGURE EACH INPUT ON THE RMC-1 FOR MAXIMUM COMPATIBILITY WITH EITHER HDMI 2.0 OR HDMI 1.4 DEVICES.
