ND5XS firmware update

My ND5XS stopped logging into Tidal yesterday. Time for a firmware update. After two very helpful calls to tech support, I got through it. My mistakes both times: install latest USB drivers (even though laptop is only 3 months old) and connect both laptop and streamer to wired network. I hope others are successful.

As 4.8 was released some years ago, I’d imagine that most people updated ages ago. When I had a 272 and was on the beta programme, doing dozens of updates, I never once used a wired connection on the laptop, so don’t be too hard on yourself.

Echo what 1970 dazzler says. After frustrating restarts, I read the manual (only do this when all else fails) and updated from 4.6 to 4.8. Now happily listening to Tidal again.

To save anyone else the pain, follow the instructions here:

Always nice when instructions are clear and they work!
