Topic: HDSPe pci express firmware question
I have acquired an RME HDSPe pci express card with digiface. In the Hammefall settings 'global' tab it shows as “Digiface(1), SN=22833488, Revision=18”
I'm on a win10 desktop PC. I think the above means that the latest firmware is not installed, as that should show as Rev 20.
I have downloaded the flash tool update that goes with driver 4.29 (dated 07/12/2018), but after flashing the card it started malfunctioning - no adat sync anymore, and the driver started 'flickering' between standard windows driver and RME Hammerfall DSP driver multiple times per second. The digiface was not recognized or shown as multiface. Revision still showed 18, not 20. Note, I did not unplug the digiface while flashing the card.
After reflashing the older firmware dated 08/04/2011 (rev18) and some reboots the system works again *relieved*. Now wondering whether I should just leave things as they or whether I did something wrong and there is benefit in flashing to the latest firmware. Please advise.
